Stipe Miocic Sounds Off On LeBron James Ditching Cleveland, Signing With Lakers

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

This would change a bit if the Lakers were to trade for Kawhi Leonard, but L.A. would also have to trade salaries in that deal as well.

Perhaps James wanted to join the Lakers because of his family's wishes and his own aspirations in the film and entertainment industry.

However, according to several reports, James is aware of the Lakers' current outlook and is okay with it - for now.

King James ended speculation about where he will play next season by inking a massive four-year, $154-million contract with the Lakers.

One of the more infamous free agent decisions determined by family involvement occurred back in the year 2000, as the Orlando Magic were attempting to land All-Star forward Tim Duncan. When last seen healthy, Leonard was the best two-way player in the National Basketball Association and arguably the closest thing to LeBron.

There's a risk in waiting for Leonard, as the Lakers just saw this summer.

Ticket seller StubHub on Tuesday said visits to the Lakers ticket page were up 7,398 percent over the same date past year even though next season's schedule has yet to be announced. But with one year remaining on his deal with no player option, the 28-year-old does not hold all the cards in deciding his future.

For the Spurs, the longer they hold on to Leonard, the less they are going to get in return for him.

So the Lakers' pursuit of Leonard may continue.

This is a marked difference from how things went with the Cleveland Cavaliers when James returned in 2014.

Here is why and how Kevin Love can become a Chicago Bull.

McGee, 30, was a reserve on the Golden State Warriors' NBA championship teams the past two seasons. While they would have to wait another season to acquire Leonard that way, they will also get to keep their young prospects who can accelerate their growth under James, along with their draft picks.

The prospect of receiving one or more draft picks would be appealing for the Cavs, who owe their first-round pick next year to Atlanta if it falls outside the top 10. This was all because of the pressure James put on the organization with his short-term contracts and his demands to win now. If the Lakers elect to re-sign Randle, they are able to go over the cap to sign him.
