LeBron James Wanted More Information On 76ers Before Choosing Lakers

"Boston's really got their top-five players off limits", Wojnarowski said on ESPN's SportsCenter.

Osman, Sexton, Zizic, and possibly Hood would need to be dealt in order for the Cavaliers to obtain more players that can help improve their chances against Golden State.

Clevelanders didn't seem to mind buying LeBron jerseys leading up to his free agency and some have become fans for life after he fulfilled his promise to bring a title to Cleveland. "I want to continue to win at the highest level, because I know I can still do it as an individual, and then my family". "Nobody wants the guys they have". Exum has been plagued by injuries, but the former No. 5 overall draft pick is still just 22 and has shown promise, particularly defensively ...

Ball was the Los Angeles Lakers' starting point guard for the majority of last season.

The Lakers were also reportedly targeting New Orleans free agent center DeMarcus Cousins. It would make for quite the busy deal. That eventually led to the communication breakdown between the player and franchise and ensued in the offseason discussion of where Leonard will go, specifically Los Angeles.

While not as impactful as Leonard, free agent guard Jamal Crawford has received interest from the Philadelphia 76ers, according to Keith Pompey of Philly.com.

The Spurs are yet to convince Leonard, 27, to commit his future and sign a long-term contract extension.

Well, with the NBA's moratorium period not ending until 12:01 p.m. on July 6, Embiid and the Sixers still have some time to change James' mind.

The Spurs have the final say on where the swingman will ultimately end up, and they don't feel obliged to grant Leonard's dream trade scenario.

"However, when Magic spoke to James late Saturday, he assured them this was a long term play and his decision wouldn't be affected by a transaction they could make under a time pressure". When news of the Philly meeting came out, I think it did provide, I don't what exactly was going through his mind, but I was given pause.

In a recent appearance on Spectrum SportsNet in Southern California, veteran reporter Larry Coon indicated that San Antonio is demanding pretty much everything for Leonard. No other team could give him such a large contract in 2019 free agency. There are multiple reasons why James should have waited on joining the Lakers. Potential trade partners are yet to see his medical reports, which could be confusing from the start.

That would be a major haul for Leonard but not completely out of the question if the Lakers were determined to get Leonard this summer. He averaged 9.2 points, 5.2 rebounds and 2.9 assists a game for IN last season, his first campaign without missing a game.
