LeBron to Lakers: Rumors Linking King James to L.A.

The Rockets' recent playoff success shouldn't be only credited to Chris Paul and James Harden but also to their defense and their ability to play five two-way players on the court. This is what exactly Kevin Durant did when he signed a two-year $54 million deal with the Golden State Warriors in 2016. An ESPN report from a few months ago suggested that James would meet with the Warriors. James recently stated that he will do whatever is best for his family and his career when asked how he will approach free agency. Nothing was heard from James' camp which is a testament to how the Cavs forward does not want to use any excuse in this finals series.

The Warriors were clearly the better team in the series.

A hypothetical Thunder roster with James in the mix would require the team to trade Steven Adams in order to create cap space. They'd have to get creative en route to acquiring James, and it'd nearly certainly require cooperation from Cleveland, who'd have to execute a sign-and-trade.

It's certainly too early to even look at next year's National Basketball Association odds with the 2018 Finals still taking place between the Golden State Warriors and Cleveland Cavaliers.

Klay Thompson and Draymond Green will become free agents in 2019 and a potential arrival of James would put the future of the duo in doubt. Does he stay in the East and team up with the closest thing we've seen to him in Ben Simmons with the Philadelphia 76ers?

The Miami Heat were the East's No.5 seed and quickly eliminated from the first round in the season before they signed James. It's not a given that James will return to Cleveland.

The Cavaliers' LeBron James hits free agency this summer and the news cycle is already centered in on his decision - just as when he previously hit free agency in 2010 and 2014.
