LeBron back in Los Angeles as start of free agency nears

It’s unlikely Le Bron James wants to deal with La Var Ball’s antics. More

San Antonio Spurs forward Kawhi Leonard (2) handles the ball against Memphis Grizzlies guard Tony Allen (9) during the first half in game four of the first round of the NBA Playoffs at FedExForum.

Wright, who isn't known as a reporter in the same regard as a Woj or anything, usually doesn't go to Twitter to tweet information like this unless he seems confident in the news he has gathered.

James' representatives reportedly will meet with the Philadelphia 76ers in Los Angeles on Sunday. While Lowe was unsure whether the Sixers would increase their initial reported offers, his colleague Adrian Wojnarowski later said on television that so far the team has kept Markelle Fultz, Joel Embiid and Ben Simmons out of any trade talks. He has full control over the Cleveland team and still struggles every year to put a dent in the score board against the champs of the West, Golden State, and last season James realized a healthy Boston team is ready to take over the East.

Even more exciting, this means the Los Angeles Lakers have a legitimate chance of signing James, that is assuming he is willing to leave the Cavaliers for a second time in his career. I've got a teenage boy, a pre-teen and a little girl that wasn't around as well. Philadelphia would instantly vault from conference contender to favourite with James, who could make a strong run at his ninth straight Finals in year one.

The chance to join one of the league's most iconic franchises has an appeal to James and he said following this year's Finals that he remains in "championship mode".




As the National Basketball Assn.'s free agent period starts, all eyes are on James, whom many consider the best basketball player ever.

There had been speculation James would consider opting into the final year of his current contract - which he had until 11:59 p.m. Friday to do.

The Cleveland Plain Dealer, USA Today, ESPN and several Cleveland television stations reported James will test free agency, making the move hours before Friday's just-before-midnight deadline.

In 2010, James bolted Cleveland in a nationally televised announcement "The Decision" infamously declaring he was taking his "talents to South Beach" and joining the Miami Heat. James was on a plane that flew into Van Nuys Airport in Los Angeles on Saturday, a source told ESPN.

The 76ers' contingent was to be led by their ownership group headed by Josh Harris and David Blitzer, a person with knowledge of the details told AP.
