Celebrities welcome LeBron James to the Los Angeles Lakers

Spurs Rumors: Kawhi Leonard willing to sit out, wait for Los Angeles

Are they top end contenders to unseat Golden State with both James and Leonard in the mix?

The Lakers have been touted as his preferred destination, meaning other teams run the risk of taking him on a one-year loan before Leonard can leave as a free agent in 2019.

Before Sunday's announcement regarding James, George had agreed to a multi-year contract with the Thunder and the likelihood of the Lakers landing Leonard in a trade from the Spurs appeared to be dwindling. "It's by far the strongest free agent or traded player performance we've seen in the National Basketball Association", says Jack Boyle, Fanatics' co-president of direct-to-consumer business.

While Rondo has demonstrated that he can still contribute, especially as a passer, his defense and shooting are still severe limitations in his game.

LaVar Ball has been saying LeBron James should join his son Lonzo Ball on the Lakers since nearly a year ago.

"He has to buy into it, nearly like Paul George did". These moves haven't been received as positive due to the team draining most its remaining cap space on players that weren't in high demand and don't represent the strongest fits next to LeBron, even if the Lakers maintained cap space for next summer.


At this point, it seems as though there was more upside to trying to keep Randle than making moves for players whose respective reputations don't match up to their actual production.

Perhaps the Lakers weren't locks to land quality free agents like Tyreke Evans or DeMarcus Cousins.

"Philadelphia will be a good team because you can take the risk, they'll still be good and you've got to make sure that you can force him to come back".

Last season with the Trail Blazers, Lillard ended up averaging 26.9 points per game to go along with 6.6 assists and 4.5 rebounds.

But there's absolutely no reason to believe Magic Johnson and Co. are going to mortgage their future for an opportunity to contend this coming season. LeBron James is leaving the NBA's Eastern Conference.
