'Notable veterans' would take league minimum with Lakers if LeBron signs

'Notable veterans' would take league minimum with Lakers if LeBron signs

James had until 11:59 p.m. Friday to make a decision about his option.

Meanwhile, in the world of verified information, Vardon has reported that James will not exercise his $35.6 million option on his contract for 2018-19 and will become an unrestricted free agent on Sunday.

The Lakers are considered an early favorite to land James because they have created enough cap space to sign him and another young player, like Oklahoma City's Paul George, to a max contract. This has only ramped up after James informed the Cleveland Cavaliers that he plans on opting out of the final year of his deal to hit the open market as a free agent.

Philly could have an outside chance of luring James even though Cleveland and the Los Angeles Lakers appear to be the likely destinations in free agency.

LeBron James could be leaving Cleveland, and TUMS wants to help Cavs fans deal with the potential loss. That would pair arguably the two best players in the league with one of the NBA's most storied franchises.

However, the Rockets have plenty of big contracts of their own from the summer spending frenzy of 2016 that they've been unable to unload in order to make space for James.




"The one thing that I've always done is considered, obviously, my family", James said. And while it's unclear which teams the 33-year-old will sit down with, buzz throughout the regular season suggested his list of prospective suitors isn't particularly long.

If James, Leonard and George join forces and wear purple and gold next season, veterans who are looking to win a championship now are no doubt going to come knocking on the Lakers' door very soon.

Turning down an option to stay with a team doesn't sound like positive news, but this hardly means the Cavs have been crossed off James' list.

LA Clippers owner and former Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer discusses the recent protests enveloping the National Football League, but said that the NBA rules are clear: Players must stand during the anthem, and if they don't, there could be consequences.

Then the Cavaliers traded him in August for Kevin Love.
