Kawhi Leonard's Clippers to play pre-season game in Vancouver
Ex-Raptors' star not yet confirmed for Oct. 17 tilt as part of annual Canada Series
A week after he left the Toronto Raptors, Kawhi Leonard's new team is scheduled for a pre-season trip to Canada.
Leonard led the Raptors to a championship in his only season in Toronto before leaving for his hometown Clippers in free agency.
After Toronto's gruelling championship playoff run, it wouldn't be surprising if the Clippers let him sit the Vancouver game out.

The game will be the fifth pre-season contest Vancouver has hosted.
The up-and-coming Mavericks have a roster that includes rising superstar Luka Doncic and seven-foot-three big man Kristaps Porzingis.
Both teams also have Canadian content, with veteran forward Dwight Powell of Toronto on the Mavericks' roster and rookie forward Mfiondu Kabengele of Burlington, Ont., with the Clippers.
