  • It’s unlikely Le Bron James wants to deal with La Var Ball’s antics. More

After weeks of speculation, the Philadelphia 76ers and their fans finally heard the news they've been waiting to hear after LeBron James announced on Friday that he would be opting out of his contract with the Cleveland Cavaliers for the 2018-19 season. Soon-Shiong also mentioned the possibility of other All-Stars like Paul George and Kawhi Leonard teaming up with James on the Lakers.

The Houston Rockets are the third favorites in the West behind Golden State and Los Angeles.

James was on a plane that flew into Van Nuys Airport in Los Angeles on Saturday, a source told ESPN.

James, 33, would have made $35.6 million in the 2018/19 season had exercised his option with the Cavs.

Philadelphia is also in the mix, but they would have to trim about $8 million off their books to free up enough space to give James a max deal.

They've struck out again and again in free agencies over the years.

"If the Lakers can close the deal in that meeting, they have a great chance of stealing LeBron James away from the Cavaliers".

LeBron James appears to be Lakers bound.

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. That still is a possibility, but the speculation around the National Basketball Association has been that George - who also opted out of his contract and became an unrestricted free agent this week - is leaning toward remaining with the Oklahoma City Thunder rather than going to play for his hometown Lakers. Since the departure of Kobe Bryant the Lakers have struggled to find their championship identity, failing to make the playoffs for the last few seasons. James loves the Hollywood lights, and with two homes in the Los Angeles area as well as a film production company, he has already established some roots in the land of movie stars and slow-moving traffic.

ESPN reported earlier this month that the team had interest in keeping Love, regardless of what happens with James. If the Sixers make that trade, they probably wouldn't be able to add James, as well.

The 5-foot-9 former Kentucky player averaged 7.8 points, 4.4 assists and 23.4 minutes in 71 games last season.
