Sixers made an offer for Kawhi Leonard

Making things even trickier is that James wants to make a quick decision about where he's headed next once free agency begins on July 1, per ESPN. James and the Cavaliers, on the other hand, made it to the NBA Finals before being swept by the Golden State Warriors.

CLEVELAND- LeBron James could opt out of his previous year of his contract with the Cavaliers and leave Cleveland for a second time. USA Today's Sam Amick cited two sources that noted there is no friction between the player and the organization. A Southern California native, Leonard reportedly wants to defect to the Lakers, but that team has a hard choice to make in terms of how many assets to offer the Spurs in a trade, as opposed to possibly being able to wait a year and sign him in free agency.

The Lakers have enticing, young pieces but are caught between the realistic possibility of acquiring Leonard as a free agent next summer and guaranteeing his presence for 2018-19.

It is still possible that James and George stick with their current teams, but teaming up in Los Angeles would make a lot of sense for both players. James has not ruled out a return to Cleveland. The team did not make a hard push to trade for him a year ago because of that thought, which could now backfire in more ways than one.

Princess Alice was recognized as one of the "righteous among nations", gentiles who rescued Jews, by Yad Vashem in 1993. He will then meet with Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas in Ramallah in the West Bank on June 26.

The key to getting LeBron James may now be Kawhi Leonard, and the Los Angeles Lakers are going for it.

"I'm Magic Johnson, I'm still the same dude", Johnson said.

Teams such as the Los Angeles Lakers and Philadelphia 76ers are both in the market for the services of James and George.

Those comments came after Irving publicly didn't rule out playing alongside James once again at some point in his career. That's not in reference to LeBron James and Paul George, who have garnered most of the headlines in the early part of the offseason. This would presumably make the Lakers' pitch to LeBron that much more enticing.
