  • The Lakers Aren't Getting Out of First Round Unless They Get Kawhi Leonard

After all, the Lakers had reportedly been trying to land San Antonio Spurs forward Kawhi Leonard in a trade to pair another star with James.

Winners of 65 games in 2017-2018, the Lakers' and Warriors' personnel moves are bad news for the Rockets, who have dipped to +800 after opening the summer sitting second to Golden State with +525 odds.

While the Lakers could create more room under the salary cap by parting ways with Britain's Luol Deng or free agent Julius Randle, the signings mean Los Angeles is likely to wait until 2019 when they can make another run at a top free agent. The stage was set for George, James, and Leonard to team up in Hollywood.

Additionally, Sports Illustrated's Lee Jenkins reported that when James and Magic Johnson met early in free agency Saturday night, they discussed how to build the Lakers into a championship contender.

The hesitancy on dealing for Leonard, however, is not just because of his impending free agency. After signing a four-year $153 million contract, he can afford the luxurious side of life. However, they did later reopen talks with the Lakers as well as other teams but refuse to be strongarmed as they have demanded a huge package for the 2014 Finals MVP.

Charania said Leonard may still wind up in Los Angeles and playing in Staples Center, but with the Clippers. "My sources are saying Brandon Ingram, Josh Hart, Kyle Kuzma, two firsts and two pick swaps ..." A team full of young talent, with no idea how to play in, or win big games is not exactly going to topple what is waiting for LeBron in the West. However, James chose the Lakers anyway. Is it Los Angeles or bust?

The Suns believe they have their shooting guard for the foreseeable future in Devin Booker, and the two sides are closing in on a five-year, $158-million extension, per Adrian Wojnarowski of

The other possible landing spot for James was the Philadelphia 76ers.

A photograph of employees signing a banner welcoming them to the "Model 3 5K Club" was deleted from Twitter and remains on Reddit. As noted by the company in its recent press release, however, the hardship over the past 12 months has been well worth it.

Conversely, however, even if Gilbert wanted to chase a big-ticket free agent to partially offset the blow of losing LeBron, his task would be nearly impossible.

The 76ers were interested in pursuing the 14-time National Basketball Association all-star to play alongside Ben Simmons and Joel Embiid.

However, the Lakers would still surely like to add Kawhi Leonard to their roster.
