Cavaliers forward Le Bron James talks with Lakers president of basketball operations Magic Johnson during the first half of the NBA All Star basketball game in New Orleans Sunday Feb. 19 2017

Sports, Kawhi is seeking a trade out of San Antonio to preferably suit up for the Los Angeles Lakers.

James owns a home and film production company in Los Angeles, where the Lakers are hoping to sign top free agents and possibly swing a trade deal with San Antonio for Kawhi Leonard.

After LeBron James reportedly reached out to Kevin Durant about the prospect of playing together, James had another National Basketball Association star contact him about teaming up: Kawhi Leonard. Per a mid-June report, Kawhi has asked for a trade and made it clear he wants to end up playing for the Lakers.

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.


Look, clearly it wasn't only this comment that made Leonard want to leave San Antonio. Once draft picks are signed, they can not be traded for 30 days. According to Steve Bulpett of the Boston Herald, the Celtics recently engaged in a trade discussion with the Spurs, but their brief conversation reportedly "went nowhere".

"LeBron James reached out to Kevin Durant via text, from what I'm told, about coming to Los Angeles".

The ESPN report adds that the Lakers are using the models of the Kyrie Irving and George trades from previous year, in that they hope to acquire Leonard with a similar trade-off.

ESPN reports that the Lakers are said to be assembling an overwhelming offer for Leonard, an attempt to not only land him but also have enough cap space to sign LeBron.


This report basically confirms that if the Lakers don't get Kawhi, they don't get LeBron. This has caused them and possibly other teams to low-ball deals to the Spurs.

However, the Lakers could receive some help from Leonard, who is due to become a free agent next summer.

With LeBron James set for free agency, speculation has begun as to who James will suit up for Fall 2018.

As the chatter about James' grew to a fever pitch this week, the four-time NBA MVP and three-time league champion retreated to the Caribbean island of Anguilla for a family vacation. Lopez, Randle and Caldwell-Pope all played a significant role for Los Angeles last season, starting a combined 195 games. However, the Lakers aren't alone in their pursuit of the two-time Defensive Player of the Year.
