Kawhi Leonard not enamored by playing with LeBron James

According to ESPN reporters Adrian Wojnarowski, Ramona Shelburne and Brian Windhorst, the Lakers' front office is feeling the heat to make a move to bring Leonard into the fold before LeBron James makes a decision to become an unrestricted free agent on Friday.

Durant could've played on a one-year, $26.3 million deal for the Golden State Warriors in the 2018-2019 season, but Marc Stein of The New York Times reported that the NBA Finals MVP has already informed the team that he's looking for a new deal.

The report said the Spurs could also possibly get a bad contract off their books by agreeing to trade Leonard.

However, the Sixers' package would be better as they have two established National Basketball Association players and a pick from Miami that could be in the lottery.

It is still possible that James and George stick with their current teams, but teaming up in Los Angeles would make a lot of sense for both players.

Shortly after James led the Cleveland Cavaliers over his Boston Celtics in Game 7 of the Eastern Conference Finals, Irving shared some kind words about LeBron after James Harden surprisingly earned 86 of 101 first-place votes to capture the NBA MVP award. With superstars like Kevin Durant, Paul George, Chris Paul, and the King himself LeBron James on the market, it should make a for a insane offseason. George had only one season remaining on his deal when the Pacers traded him last summer.

The key to getting LeBron James may now be Kawhi Leonard, and the Los Angeles Lakers are going for it.

Both players have been rumored to be considering signing with the Los Angeles Lakers.

"I'm Magic Johnson, I'm still the same dude", Johnson said.

"It's like "that deal is stupid for Kawhi" - yeah, the point is, that what is what they would give up in order to clear the salary cap space to also sign LeBron James". James' shooting percentage from three-point range was the third-best single-season mark of his career.
