A season riddled with injuries still has Kawhi Leonard eligible for a super max extension this summer even if he does not earn All-NBA status during the 2017-18 season. Leonard is eligible based on earning All-NBA in 2015-16 and 2016-17. Leonard, who will turn 27 in June, is eligible for a five-year $219M extension with a starting salary of $37.8M in 2019-20. San Antonio can bypass extension talks this summer and wait until Leonard is a possible free agent in 2019. However, Leonard would have to earn All-NBA during the 2018-19 season to become super max eligible. Leonard is under contract next season at $20.1M and has a player option of $21.3M in 2019-20.
