I doubt that money is a leading motivator for Kawhi. See https://moneyinc.com/nba-star-kawhi-...-saving-money/
His personality also doesn't suggest that he is seeking the limelight when he finds his next team.

I wasn't saying that it was, but if it is any kind of motivator at all he is leaving a ton of money on the table if he walks at the end of the year. I don't believe for one second that isn't why he wants to be traded instead of walking personally.
