In the first story, the former star of "Mad Men" added a bunch of heart-eyed emojis over Leonard, and captioned the photo "future boyfriend ?? @LAClippers," featuring him dripping with sweat and a towel wrapped around his neck.

The second photo Jones posted she captioned, "(telephone emoji) me Kawhi," encouraging the already-taken NBA star to reach out to the actress.

Unfortunately for Jones, Leonard is a taken man and has two children with longtime girlfriend Kishele Shipley.

During Friday's matchup with the Mavericks, Leonard put up 29 points with six assists and five rebounds. He will have his next opportunity to impress Jones on Sunday with the Clippers taking on the Portland Trail Blazers.

With the Clippers the No. 2 seed in the Western Conference, they are poised to make a long and deep playoff run in the NBA bubble.
