LBJ reps reportedly meeting today in Los Angeles

LBJ reps reportedly meeting today in Los Angeles

Their pitch to James, whose interest is seemingly contingent on the acquisition of another star, is yet to be seen.

For another, James has traditionally been best with multiple shooters surrounding him, even relegating Chris Bosh to a more perimeter-centric role during his time with the Miami Heat.

It's unlikely that LeBron ends up in Philly, but if nothing else the meeting is a reminder to the Lakers they are not alone in chasing No. 23 - he has options. They can't sign with other teams for several days. It's important to note, however, that LeBron is known to spend his summers in Los Angeles at one of his two homes. So we wait on LeBron or perhaps a trade for Kawhi Leonard. Angeles on Sunday, a new report says.

"That's the sense you get with him and his people", an anonymous GM told Sporting News. "So, that's a move that they're going to make", Payton remarked. "It's what happened in Cleveland four years ago".

George returned to Oklahoma City for a party hosted by his Thunder teammate Russell Westbrook on Saturday and reportedly has agreed to stay with the Thunder. If he leaves, then will it be to the Lakers, or maybe a destination that hasn't been getting as much play in rumors.

There are questions about James' fit in Philadelphia from a basketball standpoint, however. George is more of a natural small forward, but can slide over to shooting guard, if necessary.

Gilbert and James mended some fences for his return in 2014, but they remain distant other than a shared commitment to winning. Growing up in California, he has long stated his desire to suit up for the Lakers and has been linked heavily to the hometown team in Los Angeles.

Yahoo Sports' Shams Charania reported Lonzo Ball has a torn meniscus, but is expected to be ready for training camp.

Through all that, the biggest name on the market remains unsigned. Scratch him off the list of possible Sixers. "The team is also interested in Jeff Green coming back".
