After acquiring LeBron James, the Lakers are expected to go after Leonard next.

Veteran center Dwight Howard would consider a return to the Los Angeles Lakers once the Brooklyn Nets buy him out of his current contract.

"Much was made of the Lakers quest to acquire Kawhi Leonard from the Spurs or sign Paul George from the Thunder as a precursor to landing James". He was, in many ways, all the Lakers had.

Genesco Sports Enterprises CEO John Tatum on the impact of state taxes on athletes such as the NBA's LeBron James who play across the country and efforts by Gov. Phil Murphy, (D-N.J.), to imposing a tax on corporations and the wealthy in New Jersey.

It's no secret that LeBron James sells tickets like no other, but less than 24 hours after he announced his anticipated 2018 free agency decision, the Los Angeles Lakers market is already feeling the ripple effect of his presence. When Johnson and James met, they reportedly discussed how to build the Lakers into a contender, with James understanding that at the moment, they are not close.

Mr Bradnick added: "All the right checks were done - breathing, pulse - so the patient was declared deceased". A morgue worker then later found the woman was breathing in the mortuary fridge.

ESPN's Chris Haynes reported Monday that the Lakers have a meeting scheduled with Tyreke Evans.

If the Lakers are going to add another game-changer this summer, it'll likely be through a trade. I think that had a lot to with race at that time, too, and that was another opportunity for me to kind of just sit back and say, 'OK, well, how can we get better? James joined the Lakers without there being another All-Star on the roster, indicating that he's prepared to wait to compete for a title and not be among the championship favorites next year.

In May, The Ringer's Kevin O'Connor quoted multiple National Basketball Association executives as saying San Antonio would not settle for anything less than a "grand-slam" offer for Leonard. The Lakers will have room under the salary cap to sign another max salary player next year. They pulled off the surprise of the summer: a one-year, $5.3 million bargain deal with free agent DeMarcus Cousins.

But switching conferences for the league's best player changes things.
