Kawhi Leonard has the Los Angeles Clippers looking like true NBA Finals contenders and he's now signed a contract extension to keep him with the organization for the foreseeable future.

Spoiler alert: It's a big one.

The Clippers are 23-13, just three games back of the No. 1 seed in the Western Conference, with seven wins in their last 10 games.

Leonard is the leader of the team and this extension indicates the organization is fully committed to him as the center piece as they try to compete for a championship.

Wojnarowski followed up by saying Los Angeles is working with Paul George on a contract extension as well, though the talks are ongoing.

The big question was: How much is Kawhi's extension worth? The answer is over $150 million for three years, locking Leonard up in LA until the 2026-27 season.

The Clippers added James Harden in a blockbuster trade earlier this season, cementing a true "big three" that looks like one of the NBA's best teams.

Los Angeles is 12-3 in its last 15 games with the second-best offensive rating in the league (124.8), pulling off a dominant victory over the Kevin Durant-led Phoenix Suns in its most recent contest.

It's been a tumultuous tenure since Leonard joined the Clippers, but this is the franchise's best chance to hoist a Larry O'Brien trophy since Leonard arrived.

We'll see what comes from the rest of the season, though make no mistake: this Clippers team is a true contender.
