  • Lonzo Ball Lakers Spurs Kawhi Leonard

"San Antonio is asking for the house, (but) Kyle Kuzma is off limits".

LeBron James is now officially a Laker, but Kawhi Leonard's future is still up in the air. Maybe James doesn't come, and the Lakers have to settle for Plan B. And what if Leonard becomes smitten with wherever he's traded and decides to re-sign there next season? Will Leonard be joining him in Los Angeles?

This is a bold move, but an astute one.

LeBron James flew back to Los Angeles from a family vacation in the Caribbean.

The one player that has been linked to the Lakers quite a bit is Kawhi Leonard.

The balance of power in the National Basketball Association could shift if James chooses to leave Cleveland and create a new superteam with the Los Angeles Lakers or join a burgeoning power such as the Houston Rockets or Philadelphia 76ers. Now that is no longer possible, and Los Angeles management can take a more measured approach when it comes to roster-building, secure in its knowledge that there isn't a more attractive destination.

McGee and the Lakers reached agreement on a one-year deal worth the minimum, league sources told ESPN.

The superstar will sign with the Lakers, choosing them over the Cavaliers and the Sixers, among other teams who coveted the NBA's best player. He did it based on what he wanted the next phase of his career to look like.

James has dominated the Eastern Conference over the last eight seasons. The possibilities, however, are much more exciting.

USA Today reported earlier Thursday about a "Godfather Lakers offer" - an allusion to the classic movie's line "an offer that can't be refused" - that could leave rival teams unable to compete against what Los Angeles might offer. James can also sign a short-term deal with Cleveland, something he has done each year since returning in 2014.
