Kawhi Leonard was drafted by the Indiana Pacers with the 15th pick and then dealt to the San Antonio Spurs for fan favoriteGeorge Hill. He must’ve been stoked because the Spurs definitely know how to draft (remember Tony Parker and Manu Ginobli?). Kawhi is only 19 years old and was the top wing on many draft boards. The sophomore forward averaged 15, 10 and 2 while leading San Diego State to the Sweet 16 and became the highest draft pick in the University’s history.
Before his big day at the Prudential Center, we talked to Kawhi at the Sean John Official NBA Pre-Draft Style Suite with Conversion Sports to see just how Complex he really is.
