With LeBron, Lakers suddenly a betting favorite

  • Report: LeBron doesn't have plans to meet with Cavs

"If James signed with LA, he's conceding he won't make the National Basketball Association finals". If Leonard tells a team like the Sixers that there's no chance he would sign an extension with them next summer, there's little incentive to give up assets for the star forward.

Jordan has opted out of the final year of that contract he signed with the Clippers in 2015, and the Mavericks intend to pursue him as an unrestricted free agent.

James, 33, would have made $35.6 million in the 2018-19 season had he exercised his option with the Cavs. He can become a free agent in 2019, which has forced the Spurs to seriously contemplate moving on from their disgruntled star. First time around, he chose to take his talents to South Beach after his contract with Cleveland was up. Much of it had to do directly with discrepancies between his camp and the team's doctors about the nature and severity of his injury, along with a time-line for recovery. James can also sign a short-term deal with Cleveland, something he has done each year since returning in 2014. Their relationship was never a great one, but has splintered in recent years.

The Los Angeles Lakers are scrambling to put together a trade package that will pave the way for Kawhi Leonard to join the team, but as of now the San Antonio Spurs have not been impressed with what's on the table.

The $75K a week mansion James is staying in while he decides his future. "I don't think the Spurs would want to deal with the Lakers, because they would be giving the Lakers, which plays within their [Western] conference, a super team, essentially, while pounding your own franchise for the next couple of years".

ESPN reports that the Lakers are said to be assembling an overwhelming offer for Leonard, an attempt to not only land him but also have enough cap space to sign LeBron.

James is now on holiday in Anguilla, dropping $75,000 a week to stay in a luxury mansion while he sorts out his future.
