Spurs Rumors: Kawhi Leonard willing to sit out, wait for Los Angeles

However, according to Yahoo NBA insider Shams Charania, the presence of LeBron James may actually hinder the Lakers' chances of landing Leonard.

Leonard has been linked with a move to the Lakers, while the Los Angeles Clippers and the Philadelphia 76ers are also in the running for the two-time Defensive Player of the Year.

The all-star player is leaving the Cleveland Cavaliers to head to the Lakers for the 2018-2019 National Basketball Association season, his agency announced.

LaVar Ball talked about LeBron James joining his son Lonzo and the Los Angeles Lakers.

"Are we invisible?" Jose Ramirez, the Indians' third baseman, asked NBC Sports, which dared suggest the same thing about the Browns, a team that is loaded with young talent but has won only four games in the last three seasons.

Sources said Caldwell-Pope will re-sign on a one-year, $12 million deal and that Stephenson has agreed to a one-year, $4.5 million deal.

If that is tied, then the victor will be decided by a coin toss. It's been a unusual end to an absorbing World Cup group stage. So did Romelu Lukaku , who has scored four for Belgium .

Whether the Lakers win a championship this season or not, James is committed to the team long-term. The NBA's online store is already selling Lakers jerseys with James' name on the back.

King James ended speculation about where he will play next season by inking a massive four-year, $154-million contract with the Lakers. I'm going to stress this: There's no guarantee if Kawhi Leonard hits the market next summer he's going to sign with the Lakers, period.

With NBA Free Agency in full swing, there have been plenty of Lakers rumors about which players are coming and going.

For the first time in four years, Cleveland has to get used to life without LeBron and the fact his departure might have been on the cards for some time does not make it any easier.

The forward then became an unrestricted free agent last week, heavily expected to finally join the Lakers, only to perform a u-turn and stay on at OKC. Of course, the pair's many postseason runs have included numerous showdowns as opponents of James when he played for the Cavs and Heat, including the unforgettable moment in the 2014 Eastern Conference finals when Stephenson blew in a certain someone's ear.

Los Angeles selected Ball with the No. 2 overall pick in the 2017 NBA Draft. Let us know in the comments!
