Ooops, Magic did it again.
Not only did he abruptly quit his job, and then proceed to air the Lakers dirty laundry, he also screwed things up for their attempt to land Kawhi Leonard.
The Lakers embraced Johnson as a free-agent recruiter. He met with Leonard, a meeting we heard plenty about.
Cris Carter of Fox Sports 1 explains how Magic’s leak cost them dearly.
“The Lakers made a lot of mistakes. The intel Magic Johnson let out of that meeting was a mistake. Kawhi didn’t have the trust in the organization, in the front office, or in their medical staff. Kawhi just level set the league.” — @criscarter80 pic.twitter.com/PV4jvc2WNb

All the information that leaked from Magic’s conversations with Kawhi team didn’t help the Lakers case.

Leonard was reportedly down on the Lakers long before meeting with Johnson.
This could just be a way for someone in Leonard’s camp to place blame elsewhere after he spurned the Lakers for the Clippers.
Loose lips sink ships.
Magic take notice.
