LeBron doesn't have plans to meet with Cavs

Bob Donnan-USA TODAY Sports

The Philadelphia 76ers are still hoping to make one or more major splashes this offseason, and they may have plenty of incentive to offer a respectable trade package for Kawhi Leonard. The Denver Nuggets are doing their best to get a meeting, while the Philadelphia 76ers are linking up with LeBron's reps in Los Angeles on Sunday.

The Spurs are clearly open to making a deal in the short term, but they remain in pursuit of a major return of assets for Leonard, a two-time first-team All-NBA player.

With the start of free agency upon us, there have been plenty of Lakers rumors.

Now that LeBron has declined to opt into the final year of his contract with the Cleveland Cavaliers, he's one step closer to potentially joining Lonzo in Purple and Gold.

But they have also signed shooting guard Kentavious Caldwell-Pope to a one-year deal, which means nearly all of their cap space is now taken up. Is it Los Angeles or bust?

For the second time in his 15-year career, James will part with his home state team. This will require him starting from scratch in terms of building chemistry with his teammates, just like he did when he left Cleveland eight years ago and when he returned four years ago.

On an Instagram story, James wrote: "Thank you Northeast Ohio for an incredible 4 seasons".

James has agreed to a four-year deal with the Los Angeles Lakers for $154 million according his agency, opting out of the final year of his deal with the Cavaliers.

Lakers are dealing out most of their youth to land all-time greats Leonard and James, with a possible trade situation including late first round gem Kyle Kuzma and promising star Brandon Ingram getting comparisons to Kevin Durant.

How could the LA Lakers line up next season if they sign LeBron James and Kawhi Leonard? The Lakers would be giving up a lot of their young core and future stars but ultimately, setting themselves ahead to be favorites to take out the 2018-19 championship and de-throne the Warriors.
