Rival GM: LeBron James would 'let the roster come together' for Lakers

"I think the people's MVP was definitely James, but the NBA MVP was definitely Bron". For weeks, the Sixers have been discussed as a potential landing spot for Leonard in a trade, especially after acquiring a future first-round pick in 2021 during the draft, with the Spurs, and according to a recent report, an offer may have already been made. The Lakers have put in lots of effort towards building the foundation of a winning culture, and they should be careful about adding a player with Cousins' checkered past to their team. Many believe that the two players would like to play with each other.

Cleveland Cavaliers small forward LeBron James posts up Golden State Warriors guard Stephen Curry in the first half of Game 4 of the 2018 NBA Finals at Quicken Loans Arena in Cleveland Friday night.

The Lakers would love to bring Leonard in this summer, and are feeling some pressure to do so before July 1, according to ESPN.

If you're trying to maintain the belief that there's bad blood between Kyrie Irving and LeBron James, you probably should just give up at this point. They're doing enough research to suggest that he's going to be willing to take that plunge and let the roster come together.

Thankfully for him, his time did come when Costa presented Neymar with an open goal deep into stoppage time. Serbia are in third place with three points with only two teams qualifying for the knockout stage.


James Harden wins his first NBA Most Valuable Player award
James was able to lead the Cavaliers to the Finals for the fourth straight season despite only having the fourth seed in the East. Harden becomes the third ever Rocket to claim the award following Moses Malone (1979 and 1982) and Hakeem Olajuwon (1994).


World Cup rout for England over Panama
Kane became only the third England player to score a World Cup hat-trick after Roger Hunt in 1966 and Gary Lineker in 1986. Portugal's Ronaldo and Belgium's Lukaku have four goals apiece.


Both players have been rumored to be considering signing with the Los Angeles Lakers. The same line of thinking goes with the Lakers, though, getting Leonard will also increase their chances of signing LeBron James.

Landing Leonard would be a huge first step in the Lakers attempting to sign big free agents like LeBron James and Paul George in free agency, creating a core of star players to bring the team back to relevance in the National Basketball Association. That's because 13-year-old "Bronny", a highly regarded basketball player in OH, is very "likely" to enroll at a prestigious Los Angeles high school, according to a TMZ Sports report Wednesday, although it's apparently "not a done deal".

Expect to hear plenty of rumors over the next week or two surrounding both James and George.
