LeBron returns to LA to plot next move as free agency nears

Share

LeBron James #23 of the Cleveland Cavaliers reacts in the first half against the Golden State Warriors during Game Four of the 2018 NBA Finals at Quicken Loans Arena on June 8, 2018 in Cleveland, Ohio.

The Lakers have open spaces and they headline almost every conversation that goes along the lines of LeBron James and or Paul George. However, James could still re-sign with Cleveland, although the strong current from national media is that he appears ready to move. The only problem was they got swept by the Warriors, and James appeared to be mulling free agency before the series even ended. By the end of the offseason it will probably show that the vast majority of moves will be affected by what James does as veterans delay their own decisions on the chance they might be able to join James' team. Adding that dynamic duo would give the Lakers more leverage in trade talks for Kawhi Leonard, who wants out of San Antonio.

On Friday, LeBron James of the Cleveland Cavaliers did the expected and declined his option to make over $35 million next season as a Cavalier, thus becoming an unrestricted free agent.

Senator Collins will not back anti-abortion Supreme Court nominee
Collins said Trump told her that he would not ask a prospective Supreme Court nominee about their stance on Roe . But the eventual nominee already faces a hurdle: Republicans hold a slim 51-49 majority in the Senate, and Sen.

The four-time MVP may still sign with Cleveland but the echoes are growing louder that James will create another superteam by joining either the Houston Rockets, the LA Lakers or the Philadelphia 76ers.

James would be the 12th, which means Cleveland will only be looking to fill two or three open roster spots as it is. They were a lot younger the last time I made a decision like this four years ago.

Interestingly, Embiid's recruitment of James isn't something that is new to everyone.

Heat advisory this weekend through Monday night
The hit and miss afternoon storms should clear out through the evening, as high pressure starts to overtake the region. After another warm night heat index values are once again expected to be hot on Sunday afternoon reaching over 100°.

That proved to be incorrect, and four years later, Gilbert had to mend fences with James to get him back to Cleveland for a second time. Only the Philadelphia 76ers, Chicago Bulls and Atlanta Hawks have more than $20 million in cap space less than a full day into free agency. They're now linked like never before and if James wants to prepare for his eventual life after basketball, who better to learn from than Johnson, who has made a fortune as a business entrepreneur, or Bryant, an Academy Award victor. And by coming to Philly, James believes he would have a great chance to play in his ninth consecutive NBA Finals.

"Sources told cleveland.com this week that the Cavs would not trade Love, a five-time All-Star who is owed about $50 million over the next two seasons, if James leaves as a free agent". This lineup is based on just James signing with the Lakers, and not some of the other rumors that are circulating. The 33-year-old had previously said he wanted to finish his career in OH, and although he's leaving again, Cavs fans are more forgiving after he ended the city's 52-year sport title drought in 2016.

Lakers Dodged A Bullet Missing Out On Paul George
By trading for George, the Thunder took a huge risk as it was all but assumed that he would sign with the Lakers in free agency. The Thunder have spent all year trying to convince George to stay in Oklahoma City rather than head west for Los Angeles.
