This Moment Served As Kawhi Leonard’s ‘Last Straw’ With Spurs

LeBron James could head to the Los Angeles Lakers this summer

The San Antonio Spurs star, 26, told 33-year-old James that he wants to play alongside him, a source told Yahoo Sports.

It's plausible, if not likely, that the Lakers might first wait on a free-agent decision from James before looking to move forward in a trade for Leonard.

But the expectation is the Lakers, who have plenty of spending room under the National Basketball Association salary cap, will make a run at James and George and offer draft picks and players to San Antonio for Leonard. Wagner couldn't be traded for 30 days once he signs his rookie deal. They'd help if the Spurs want to remain competitive after trading Leonard. Before he joined the Heat, James had meetings with the Chicago Bulls, New York Knicks, Brooklyn Nets and Los Angeles Clippers, where team representatives pitched the All-Star with personalized presentations and marketing plans. Given all of that information, it seems as though that a trade between the Lakers and the Spurs would fall in the range of those two reports.

That could mean luring James and George, who has had his eye on the Lakers for some time now. Kawhi's 2019 free agency and his supposed desires of wanting to play for the Lakers has given at least the Celtics concern.

ESPN reported the Lakers' willingness to include Ingram in a trade Thursday, and the Times does not dispute the team's openness to dealing Ingram, however, they were clear to say they have done no such thing yet.

The Cavaliers can re-sign James, but they don't have the salary-cap flexibility to sign other free agents in order to upgrade their roster.

The former Finals MVP disagreed with both the diagnosis and treatment of the injury, eventually seeking an alternative opinion from a doctor of his own choosing - Dr Jonathan Glashow, who also moonlights at the Sixers' chief medical officer.

Highlighted by Julius Randle, the Lakers now have eight free agents.

Kawhi Leonard #2 of the San Antonio Spurs shoots a free throw during the game against the Golden State Warriors during Game One of the Western Conference Finals of the 2017 NBA Playoffs on May 14, 2017 at ORACLE Arena in Oakland, California.
