NBA Free Agency Rumors: Kawhi And LeBron Had A Chat

Adding that dynamic duo would give the Lakers more leverage in trade talks for Kawhi Leonard, who wants out of San Antonio.

The Spurs are actively discussing potential trades with multiple teams, though Leonard has indicated a desire to play in Los Angeles.

Now that James' free agency is almost upon us, it looks as though at least one team is scrambling to trade for Leonard.

LeBron could decide that he doesn't have to wait on the Lakers to clear cap space and trade for Kawhi if he wants to play for Kawhi.

This has seen various reports with the Los Angeles Lakers being one of the primary teams leading the charge towards working out a deal to pry Leonard away from San Antonio.

Meanwhile, in the world of verified information, Vardon has reported that James will not exercise his $35.6 million option on his contract for 2018-19 and will become an unrestricted free agent on Sunday.

Regardless of who may or may not join James in free agency, OddsShark reported last week that the Lakers are heavily favored to sign him at 4-13, while the Cavs are second at 13-4.

It now seems that the Spurs have been left with little choice but to accept this and soften their stance. Philadelphia views the situation very similarly to the end of Paul George's tenure in IN 12 months ago: The Spurs have a fractured relationship with their star and Leonard's camp has publicly postured for San Antonio to trade him. Based on the latest reports, that may be the most plausible scenario, as San Antonio likely wouldn't accept a deal that didn't involve Tatum, Brown or Irving.

Following the conclusion of the NBA Draft last week, Cleveland general manager Koby Altman said the Cavs have had "good dialogue" with James' management team.

The Lakers will be appealing, particularly if they're in win-now mode since players will be able to showcase their game on a big stage. What if the Lakers then can't get any free agents next summer?

Any trade for Leonard would likely require a huge haul.
