LeBron weighing many free agency options

Bob Donnan-USA TODAY Sports

Las Vegas' reaction to the signing put the Lakers right behind the Golden State Warriors for title odds, at 7-2, according to the Westgate SuperBook.

Irving has one year left on his current deal and confirmed he will not sign an extension at the moment.

LeBron James will play for a Western Conference team for the first time in his career. ESPN reported he is signing a four-year deal that will be worth $US160 million. Reports have linked them to other players like DeMarcus Cousins or Nerlens Noel, but neither is the type of player that would swing the balance of power in the West from the Golden State Warriors' hands.

The Sixers have been vocal about their intention to chase star-caliber players through free agency, trades and the National Basketball Association draft. Paul happens to also rep a guy named LeBron James.

James hasn't said much publicly about his thinking in free agency. James flew from the Caribbean island of Anguilla and landed in Van Nuys just after 11 a.m. PT.

On Friday, James informed the Cavs that he was not exercising his $35.6 million option and becoming a free agent.

Lonzo Ball could be reason the Lakers don't get Kawhi Leonard
Philadelphia has the combination of unproven prospects, draft picks and capable players that might be able to get a deal done. According to Ben, all of the young players on the Lakers are bad and would not constitute a big enough haul from the Lakers .

Even without Paul George, who agreed to re-sign with the Oklahoma City Thunder, that makes the Lakers an instant contender. The tantalizing possibility of forming a superteam of LeBron, James Harden and Paul, a team that would immediately compete with the Warriors, died on the vine. Leonard isn't a free agent but he has been holding out from the Spurs and it's no secret both he and the team want a trade. He played all 82 games for the first time and averaged 27.5 points (his most since 2009-10), tied a career high with 8.6 rebounds per game and set a career high with 9.1 assists per game while shooting 54.2 percent from the field. He had formed a terrific partnership with Anfernee Hardaway and had already led the Orlando Magic to one finals appearance, and in his final season with that team took them to the Eastern Conference finals.

James has also endured a fractious relationship with Cavaliers fans over the years.

James was on a plane that flew into Van Nuys Airport near Los Angeles on Saturday.

Turns out, James was flying to his new home.

Philadelphia star Joel Embiid weighed in on Twitter saying, "The Lakers are FOREVER gonna be Kobe's and Magic's team".

The three-time National Basketball Association champion is now the most coveted prize in an National Basketball Association free-agent class that includes all-stars Paul George and Chris Paul.
