  • LeBron James arrives in LA hours before he becomes a free agent

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.

Because the Lakers are favored to sign James, the Cavs are sixth among all teams with 18/1 title odds.

Lakers set sights on LeBron James in free agencyOn Friday, he opted out of the final year of his contract with the Cleveland Cavaliers to officially become a free agent.

At this point, it does seem like LeBron will either end up in Los Angeles or Cleveland, and while the Lakers are the clear favorite at the sportsbooks, you probably shouldn't count the Cavaliers out.

James then carried the Cavs, with their flawed roster after a massive trading deadline turnover, through the Eastern Conference playoffs - they survived two Game 7s and swept the top-seeded Toronto Raptors - to the NBA Finals for a fourth straight meeting with the Golden State Warriors. James has not publicly commented on what team he will sign with as his family and close advisers consider offers at his "decision cave" in the Caribbean.


Temple's option is worth $8 million in 2018-19, which marks the final season of a three-year deal he signed in July of 2016. The USA Today listed a few possible players who might be willing to play with James for the minimum. Ownership and interim president of basketball operations/coach Brett Brown are expected to lead the meeting with James' representatives, sources tell ESPN.

James has been linked to multiple teams in free agency, most notably the Lakers. Sure, it isn't as good as meeting with LeBron himself, but James has made it pretty clear that he doesn't want to be wooed by front-offices going insane in a meeting with him.

"This will be about more than just this summer's transaction". It is important to note the lineup is likely to look different as the off-season progresses, even if James comes to L.A. But if the four-time MVP ultimately chooses to abandon his team, antacid purveyor TUMS is here to help. There is a young core of players, including burgeoning superstar Joel Embiid, Rookie of the Year Ben Simmons and former No. 1 overall pick Markelle Fultz, to build around, and Philadelphia reportedly made an offer for disgruntled San Antonio Spurs star Kawhi Leonard to become a more attractive option.

Always one to pride himself on efficiency, James shot 54.2 percent from the field and 36.7 percent from three-point range.
