Lakers Would Take On Salary To Acquire Draft Pick From Nuggets

  • Paul George

Rumors also suggest that the Lakers are pursuing a trade with the San Antonio Spurs for Kawhi Leonard.

Leonard isn't a free agent until next season, but he's reportedly asked for a trade to Los Angeles.

Before his trade, George had told the Pacers that he planned to sign with the Lakers in free agency this summer. No trade package has come to the forefront, but all three can offer young assets to entice San Antonio and work towards an agreement. The two-time NBA All-Star has his eyes set on becoming a Los Angeles Laker or joining a title contending team like the Boston Celtics. The piece also goes on to talk about how Paul George to the Lakers is no longer a certainty.

Schultz reports that, according to a source, Leonard "pitched James on his incredible defensive ability and how it would alleviate the pressure on James".

George may opt to sign a short-term deal, either with the Thunder or someplace else.

ESPN first reported George's decision.

Trump was asked about the failure and said his message to House Republicans is: 'I want them to do what they want'. He tweeted support for it early Wednesday, five days after saying they should abandon it as a waste of time.

James has until Friday to opt out of his contract with the Cavs but is expected to become the most coveted player on the market when free agency opens Sunday at midnight ET. Trading for LeBron sort of takes the Lakers out of the Leonard sweepstakes financially.

"I had two phone calls last night... with folks telling me that LeBron James has reached out to Kevin Durant", he said.

Speaking to Los Angeles-based radio station, ESPN 710, yesterday, Lakers insider Ramona Shelburne revealed the belief that George would leave the Thunder this summer had now been reduced to a "hail Mary" effort for the Lakers' front office. Johnson said he'll step down as president if the Lakers are unable to get big-name free agents in the next two years.

Last year, the nine-time All Star signed a $51 million two-year deal which included an opt-out clause, which will allow him to become an unrestricted free agent this summer and restructure his deal with the reigning National Basketball Association champions.

Citing a Reddit post that documented his recent Sirius XM appearance, Clutch Points wrote that former Cleveland Cavaliers general manager David Griffin believes that Cousins will be signing with the Lakers this offseason.
