The team has also held off on signing 25th overall pick Mo Wagner in order to be able to potentially include his draft rights in any deal.

With LeBron James set for free agency, speculation has begun as to who James will suit up for Fall 2018.

James has until Friday night to opt out of his contract with the Cavaliers.

As Chuck just mentioned to me offline, the Celtics could just be driving up the price for Kawhi so the Lakers can gut their team for him.

Now that James' free agency is almost upon us, it looks as though at least one team is scrambling to trade for Leonard. According to ESPN, the Spurs are asking for a huge package in return for Leonard.

Highlighted by Julius Randle, the Lakers now have eight free agents. Any deal can't become official until July 6. Crawford, 38, is a veteran hunting for his first ring, and apparently could head to the champion Golden State Warriors on a league minimum deal.

Jackson family patriarch, Joe Jackson, dies at 89
Sources close to the Jackson family patriarch stated he was getting weaker as days progressed and were preparing for a farewell. Jackson also had a daughter out of wedlock. "My mother nourished me with the most extravagant love imaginable", she said.

The Lakers of course aren't the only team that would love to land James.

Most of that speculation surrounds the best player in the NBA LeBron James, and he is for sure the number one target on the Lakers wish list. Covington is as much a paragon of the Sixers' development efforts as any player of The Process era, emerging from an undrafted free agent to a key starter the team inked to a long-term extension last fall. ESPN reported on Thursday that he texted Kevin Durant, but Durant is expected to remain with Golden State.

On the flip side, Ball could make LeBron's life easier by setting up the King with transition baskets via long outlets and by making big-time defensively plays that would relieve James of having to do it all in the half court.

George hasn't been a good fit alongside Russell Westbrook in Oklahoma City.

We are all waiting for the big pieces in this summer's free agent period to choose their destinations. One team source says preliminary discussions with San Antonio revealed the Spurs have strong interest in a package involving burgeoning forwards Dario Saric and Robert Covington as well as a future first-round pick.
