  • Lakers Rumors: LA's Pitch to Sign Paul George Has Been Revealed

That potentially puts pressure on the Lakers to land at least one superstar - specifically San Antonio Spurs forward Kawhi Leonard or Oklahoma City Thunder forward Paul George - prior to James' free agent decision, which is likely to come sooner rather than later. The Lakers, the franchise that Leonard wants to be traded to, did not have a good initial conversation with the Spurs, ESPN reported recently.

The Spurs have been waiting for offers from parties interested in acquiring Kawhi Leonard, who has asked San Antonio's management to ship him to another team. If the Spurs aren't willing to trade Leonard within the Western Conference, Kawhi may have to get creative with his preferences. The thinking in Los Angeles is if the Lakers can acquire Leonard, it increases their chances at luring James and/or George as well.

If they already were hesitant to trade with the Lakers, that sentiment would only further be validated if it meant also assisting their efforts to sign James. LeBron James has to decide on Friday whether or not he wants to opt out of his deal with the Cavs, and even if he does, he won't remain on the market for long, as multiple sources have claimed he wants to make a decision before July 4th. He wants to be traded, but only to the Los Angeles Lakers or Los Angeles Clippers. If he's serious about his employment with the team, swinging a deal for Leonard would make him a man of his word.

The Celtics have plenty of possible options in making an offer for Leonard. Aldridge becomes even more expendable if the Spurs were to trade for a young building block like Brandon Ingram or Markelle Fultz.

The Leonard rumors are starting to really heat up, and expect the Celtics to be right in the middle of it all until San Antonio actually pulls the trigger. Kuzma was one of the NBA's best rookies last season, tied for the team lead with 16.1 points per game after being taken with the 27th pick in the 2017 NBA Draft.
