Free pizza and beer sounds like a party worth going to, but it might not be enough to keep Kawhi Leonard in San Antonio.

Freetrail Brewing Company in San Antonio, Texas is offering Spurs forward Kawhi Leonard free pizza and beer for life if he stays with the San Antonio Spurs.

The company released a note to Leonard in an attempt to keep him in Texas.

"We know things have been kind weird this season. Lots of rumors, finger pointing, questioning loyalty and what not," the note read. "So, here's the deal. Let's forget about this past season. We want you back, and to prove it we'll give you free pizza and beer for life. No Joke."

The note ended with a bittersweet XOXO.

To recap the Kawhi Leonard saga, Leonard was cleared to play by team doctors after recovering from a quad contusion. But Kawhi's camp said the superstar wasn't ready to suit up.

So, he watched on as his team stumbled into the playoffs and were soon wiped away in four games by the Steph Curry-less Warriors.

His "camp" consists of his agent, Mitch Frankel, and uncle Dennis Robertston, among others. And they believe Leonard has needed to sit out due to muscle ossification or hardening, according to an ESPN report.

A league source told ESPN, "Kawhi is the same person. The only thing that has changed about him is the people speaking for him now."

So, Freetail Brewing is hoping both sides can look past all of the issues and, as it normally is, they're hoping beer and pizza can be the ultimate mediator in mending broken friendships.

However, they are aware that beer and pizza isn't the ideal diet for pro athletes, but who can resist a cheat day every now and again?
