It begins: Free agency in National Basketball Association starts with a flourish

  • Paul George Lakers Thunder

James once called the 27-year-old Cousins "the best big man in our game". "They honestly check the boxes where I needed those boxes to be checked from what a player wants and needs out of a front office, out of a medical group, out of teammates, out of coaching staff". It would certainly help if they're successful in luring LeBron James and/or concluding a trade for Kawhi Leonard.

Anthony has exercised his $28 million option to stay with the Thunder for next season, doing so while insisting that he will not accept a role where he comes off the bench. He is slated to earn just over $25 million next season which will gradually increase to $41 million annually in the final year of his contract and is not eligible for a no-trade clause. For what it's worth, some executives believe LeBron's indecision is all theater, and he has already decided on the Lakers as his new team.

Yes, the Lakers are still favorites-but not total locks-to sign LeBron James, league sources say.

James, who is also known as "King James", took to Instagram to address his Cleveland fans. Reports have linked them to other players like DeMarcus Cousins or Nerlens Noel, but neither is the type of player that would swing the balance of power in the West from the Golden State Warriors' hands.

The nice thing about the new National Basketball Association is that every season is temporary.

"The Lakers are FOREVER gonna be Kobe's and Magic's team". ESPN first reported George's decision about the option year.

There's a danger in waiting, as the Lakers just saw.

The Lakers have positioned themselves with a massive amount of cap space to make noise this summer.

ESPN Sports Business correspondent Darren Rovell on Sunday noted a significant advantage that would accrue to James by choosing to ink a deal with Philadelphia rather than the Lakers, posting to his own Twitter feed.
