Lakers Have 'Inside Track' To Signing LeBron James

Lakers Have 'Inside Track' To Signing LeBron James

Right now, the Kawhi Leonard sweepstakes is taking place, with the San Antonio Spurs entertaining suitors.

The pressure is on the Los Angeles Lakers to acquire a star player, as LeBron James is reportedly reluctant to join Los Angeles before another star is also on board.

Yahoos' Chris Mannix reported that the Spurs don't seem to be in any rush to trade Leonard, while the Lakers would like to get a trade done before July 1, when James becomes a free agent.

Look, clearly it wasn't only this comment that made Leonard want to leave San Antonio. After they did not make the trade, George was traded to the Thunder and one year later re-signed with them. According to Steve Bulpett of the Boston Herald, the Celtics recently engaged in a trade discussion with the Spurs, but their brief conversation reportedly "went nowhere".

Things are starting to get insane leading up to the start of free agency for the Los Angeles Lakers. "I don't think the Spurs would want to deal with the Lakers, because they would be giving the Lakers, which plays within their [Western] conference, a super team, essentially, while pounding your own franchise for the next couple of years".

The Cavaliers can offer James the most money under National Basketball Association rules, a five-year deal worth $209 million, and he could also sign a short-term deal. Those assets included Ingram, Kyle Kuzma, Josh Hart, two future first-round picks, and possibly even Julius Randle in a sign-and-trade.

That could mean luring James and George, who has had his eye on the Lakers for some time now.

Free agency starts on Sunday, and the moratorium ends on July 6th.

The bottom line is that the Celts would be willing to make a great deal for Kawhi Leonard.

There's no doubt now, however, that Koepka is back, and he has proved his major mettle on the toughest test the US Open can offer. For only the third time in the post-World War II era - and seventh time in 118 stagings - the U.S.

They'd also need scoring off the bench, and there are several free agents who would jump at an opportunity to have this kind of prominent role on a team like the Lakers. He played in just nine games this past season because of the quad problem, and questions about whether he could and should have played more strained his relationship with the Spurs.
