Lakers, LeBron James, and the Kawhi Leonard sweepstakes

Lakers, LeBron James, and the Kawhi Leonard sweepstakes

As well as these two superstars, the Lakers could potentially trade with the San Antonio Spurs for Kawhi Leonard, who has already expressed a desire to move to Los Angeles this summer.

Another preference by James that could impact free agency, league sources said, is that he wants to make a decision quickly in July free agency.

As you might recall, Wojnarowski reported earlier this month that Boston made an offer to San Antonio for Leonard ahead of the National Basketball Association trade deadline in February.

The Lakers believe that landing Leonard could help them attract free agents like LeBron James and Paul George this offseason.

White House Hits China With New Tariffs, Ramping up Trade War
But Trump's China trade offensive is only one side of his multi-front confrontation with all major USA economic partners. Although shares of some tariff-sensitive companies fell on Wall Street, the stock market overall fell only modestly.

On Tuesday, Lakers president of basketball operations Magic Johnson laughed off the idea of being anxious about the pressure to bring superstars to Los Angeles, citing the number of NBA Finals he played in.

What exactly would that offer be? Aldridge becomes even more expendable if the Spurs were to trade for a young building block like Brandon Ingram or Markelle Fultz.

Kawhi Leonard #2 of the San Antonio Spurs dribbles past Julius Randle #30 of the Los Angeles Lakers during the second half of a game at Staples Center on November 18, 2016 in Los Angeles. Kuzma was one of the NBA's best rookies last season, tied for the team lead with 16.1 points per game after being taken with the 27th pick in the 2017 NBA Draft.

The latest ESPN story suggested that former first-round pick Josh Hart could be involved in a trade with the Spurs.

The visit would also serve to underline that Kim is adhering to a request made by Xi at their first meeting in Beijing . President Richard Nixon and Chinese leader Mao Zedong, resulting in a fundamental reorientation of Sino-U.S. relations.

The possibility of the Spurs looking at an Aldridge trade to follow a Kawhi deal was first raised on Bill Simmons' podcast this week, with guest Kevin O'Connor. That pick could be used to sweeten a prospective trade opportunity. ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski said on "The Rich Eisen Show" that it's unlikely Gregg Popovich would coach one of Lavar Ball's sons with the Spurs.

ESPN has an update (of sorts) on the pursuits of LeBron James and Kawhi Leonard.

The Leonard rumors are starting to really heat up, and expect the Celtics to be right in the middle of it all until San Antonio actually pulls the trigger.
