Basketball: LeBron's Lakers start to take shape as big banner exits Cleveland

AP FILE

The all-star player is leaving the Cleveland Cavaliers to head to the Lakers for the 2018-2019 National Basketball Association season, his agency announced. Now Magic Johnson and general manager Rob Pelinka are tasked with surrounding their new superstar with talent and have reportedly targeted Kawhi Leonard of the San Antonio Spurs in trade talks.

However, things could dramatically change, at least when it comes to the East, if the Sixers were to land Leonard. Kawhi Leonard is set to hit free agency and his preferred destination has been Los Angeles as far as a trade was concerned this offseason.

He also added that US trading partners agreed that the deals needed to be altered, but that none of his predecessors "ever asked". In recent months, Trump has frequently attacked Canadian trade barriers on agriculture with a particular focus on dairy.


McGee, 30, was a reserve on the Golden State Warriors' NBA championship teams the past two seasons.

Per Spectrum SportsNet's Larry Coon, the Spurs' request includes Brandon Ingram, Kyle Kuzma, Josh Hart, two first-round draft picks and swapping two more draft picks. However, he also believes the Sixers are likeliest to land the disgruntled Spurs star which will tip the scales for Philadelphia. "I think his options have broadened a little bit".

Real Madrid see Cristiano Ronaldo's departure as a possibility
Following Real Madrid's win over Liverpool in the Champions League final, the Portuguese star added doubts to his future. Since then, the Italian press have gone big on a new story that Juventus are trying to sign Ronaldo from Madrid.


Fanatics tells me that free agency doesn't create as much business supercharged by player movement as you might expect.

It may seem odd that the Lakers, who have clearly accelerated the rebuilding process by adding LeBron, were content passing on one of the league's most dominant offensive players at such a relatively cheap price.

"What kind of message are you trying to send?" Walmart is once again under fire for a shirt available on its Website. In all of those cases, Walmart removed the products after consumer complaints, rather than screening them beforehand.


For fans who want one last chance in front of the banner, you better go as soon as possible before it's taken down this week. Because even though they got beat 4-1 by Boston in the playoffs, it could've easily been 4-1 the other way. "They're just saying give us everything". Let's see what Markelle Fultz does.
