"I've never been a guy to pitch anything to anybody," Lowry said. "[Kawhi's] going to make a decision on himself, and I'm going to be happy for whatever decision he makes. At the end of the day, he helped get what I wanted to get."
Leonard can become a free agent June 30 by opting out of the deal that will pay him $21.3 million next season.
The Raptors' bold move to acquire Leonard from the San Antonio Spurs with one guaranteed year remaining on his contract worked to perfection. He was named MVP of the 2019 NBA Finals after averaging 28.5 points, 9.8 rebounds and 2.0 steals in six games against the Golden State Warriors.
Despite that success, ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski reported Friday on SportsCenter that the Los Angeles Clippers are at the top of Leonard's list of potential landing spots, and the Raptors "still have work to do" before free agency starts at 6 p.m. ET at the end of the month.
Lowry was able to adjust his play to accommodate the arrival of Leonard. His average of 14.2 points per game during the regular season was his lowest mark since 2010-11, but he had a career-high 8.7 assists per contest.
In the decisive Game 6 against the Warriors, Lowry was able to exorcise his playoff demons by scoring 26 points and dishing out 10 assists.
No matter what Leonard decides to do, Lowry's resume includes a championship thanks to the partnership the pair were able to forge in just one season together.
