The New York Knicks are going to "aggressively pursue" expected free agent Kawhi Leonard this summer, sources told SNY's Ian Begley.

Additionally, the Knicks' plans to pursue Kyrie Irving may be affected by a belief among teams that the Brooklyn Nets are his favored destination if he leaves the Boston Celtics, according to the report.

Irving reportedly plans to opt out of the final year of his current contract before Thursday, paving the way for him to enter unrestricted free agency. Leonard is expected to opt out of his deal before June 30.
