  • NBA Notebook: LeBron back in Los Angeles as start of free agency nears

They apparently feel confident that they're still in the running to swing a trade for the disgruntled San Antonio Spurs star.

If the Lakers truly view Leonard as the piece that will land LeBron James, then a decision may be coming soon.

James had until 11:59 p.m.to express his intentions to the Cavs and his agent Rich Paul informed the team in the morning, said the people who spoke on condition of anonymity because the sides are not publicly commenting on moves ahead of free agency, which opens on Sunday.

The San Antonio Spurs are engaged with several teams in trade talks regarding All-NBA forward Kawhi Leonard, including the Los Angeles Lakers and Boston Celtics, league sources told ESPN. It is unclear how many of them will actually play with James rather than being included in a trade. One executive said the proposed packages have gotten worse with each round of negotiations, while another said they're flat-out unacceptable.

The 76ers theoretically could beat an offer from the Los Angeles Lakers for Leonard. The Lakers' reputation had been down in the dumps for a while, but Magic Johnson and Rob Pelinka's front office has turned that around with an eye on this summer.

Leonard wanted to move back to his hometown even before James settled on his future but the 33-year-old's decision will undoubtedly have convinced the Spurs ace that he can potentially win more rings if he moves to LA.

The fact that he didn't pick up his option could be good news for anxious Cavs fans, who fear James may leave them for the second time in his career. He led the outmatched Cavaliers to a stunning NBA Finals upset in 2016 but had seemingly grown frustrated in recent months at Cleveland's inability to build a championship calibre supporting cast around him or to mount a credible challenge to the Golden State Warriors juggernaut. The Sixers are among the teams hoping to woo him.

Kawhi Leonard is now the National Basketball Association star everyone's talking about this offseason. He has the inside track, because of his relationship with the Spurs. Leonard has maintained throughout this summer that he prefers to end up on the Lakers. The feeling here says he won't.
