Lebron James lands in Los Angeles Saturday

  • Lonzo Ball Lakers Spurs Kawhi Leonard

Of course, someone is probably going to have to make the first move.

Stay tuned. Decision III is this summer's blockbuster - and it's coming soon.

James has left as a free agent before, once in 2010 and in 2014.

He also opted out of his contract with Cleveland in 2015, to sign a new two year deal with a one year option.

The Lakers, who had huge cap space this summer, missed out on Paul George after he re-signed with the Oklahoma City Thunder following links to the Staples Center. DeMarcus Cousins is still a free agent.

The Sixers have the ability to offer James a $38.25 million annual maximum salary over four years, potentially partnering him with two of the NBA's best young stars, Joel Embiid and Ben Simmons.

According to multiple reports, Leonard could be traded sooner rather than later with multiple suitors in hand. According to ESPN, James could still fetch as much as $207 million over five years from the Cavaliers, while other teams can offer a max of $152 million over four years.

The 76ers have also been engaged in talks with the San Antonio Spurs on a potential Kawhi Leonard trade, and so far, have kept three players off-limits in talks, team sources tell ESPN - Embiid, Simmons and Markelle Fultz. Los Angeles might not look like a title contender now, especially in a world where the Golden State Warriors exist, but - in James' estimation, presumably - it will.

Paul George Announces He's Re-Signing With Oklahoma City Thunder
Grant had his highest points per game average at 8.4 since the 2015-16 year, when he scored 9.7 points per game. Around the league, though, there is skepticism about Oklahoma City's willingness to go quite to this extreme.

The NBA has turned into a league where one superstar is no longer enough to win a championship.

The Philadelphia 76ers are aiming for the moon right now.

How could the LA Lakers line up next season if they sign LeBron James and Kawhi Leonard?

James, 33, is coming off one of his finest campaigns as a pro in his 15th season.

The move will nearly certainly bring to an end a run of four successive National Basketball Association finals which saw James' former team, the Cleveland Cavaliers, meet the Golden State Warriors on each occasion.

Those unknowns remain, but James is closer to solving them.

James had numerous reasons to be upset.
