Kawhi Leonard was just in Jordans last night, but he could be rocking a different brand when the Raptors take on the Warriors tomorrow.

According to Yahoo Sports, Leonard has inked a multiyear deal with New Balance. This comes after rumors over the spring that Leonard would be leaving the brand upon his contract's expiration in October. 

New Balance has been making a number of moves in the basketball space recently, having just signed NBA prospect Darius Bazley last month. 

New Balance declined to comment on this story. Meanwhile, ESPN's Tim Bontemps reports that Leonard arrived to practice in socks and says the deal isn't official yet.

Kawhi Leonard, who showed up to his interview at Toronto's practice facility today in socks, said he hasn't agreed to a deal with New Balance yet. "It's not official," Leonard said. "Me and New Balance haven't announced anything."

UPDATE (12/3): After talks of a New Balance deal surfaced last week, Leonard has been spotted in the brand's sneakers for the first time, which all but confirms that the endorsement is a lock.

His footwear of choice ahead of tonight's home game against the Nuggets was Ronnie Fieg's Kith x Nonnative x New Balance 997S collab.

Stay tuned to see what the Raptors star breaks out on the court.
