Sunday’s official start to the NBA’s free-agency moratorium period was a wild one with reports that big names like Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving will head to the Brooklyn Nets together, the Miami Heat arranging a sign-and-trade deal to acquire Jimmy Butler, and a slew of other moves.

One big name who won’t be announced for the rest of Sunday, however, will be Toronto Raptors superstar Kawhi Leonard.

According to Chris Haynes of Yahoo Sports, Leonard won’t be taking any meetings on Sunday and will look to prolong the process.

Leonard, the 2019 Finals MVP, is the No. 1 name left on the board in free agency and has been connected to the Los Angeles Lakers and Los Angeles Clippers in addition to possibly re-signing with the Raptors.

The moratorium period will end on July 6 at 12 p.m. ET. While other players have already determined their future, there’s a chance Leonard might take it right to the moratorium’s end — or even beyond — to make up his mind.
