    Getty Lakers stars LeBron James, Anthony Davis and Russell Westbrook In a May 27 column, Grant Hughes of Bleacher Report predicted that the Los Angeles Lakers would lose their best player this summer. Hughes, who covers the NBA for Bleacher Report, forecasts that LeBron James will request a trade from the Lakers this offseason. “The Los Angeles Lakers have no promising young players likely to ascend, no depth, virtually no first-round picks to trade, no reason to believe Russell Westbrook will be better in his 15th season than he was in his 14th and no legitimate chance to contend—now or in the near future,” Hughes wrote. “Don’t you, LeBron James, think long and hard about engineering an exit?” James has never requested a trade during his Hall of Fame career. He can sign a two-year extension with the Lakers this offseason. However, he may choose not to.James Is Considering Playing out His ContractAccording to Sam Amick of The Athletic, James is considering playing out his present contract. The four-time MVP becomes an unrestricted free agent in the summer of...
    Getty Los Angeles Lakers stars Anthony Davis and LeBron James react during a game against the LA Clippers. The Brooklyn Nets started the season with one of the best “Big Threes” in the league, but now the team may be in danger of completely breaking up which should have the attention of the Los Angeles Lakers. The Nets already went through a very public divorce with James Harden leading to a mid-season trade, and Kyrie Irving’s future now very much hangs in the balance. Much has been made about the Lakers potentially making a run at Irving, but the door could be opening ever so slightly for Kevin Durant. New York Daily News’ Kristian Winfield reported that Durant has not spoken to the Nets front office since being swept by the Celtics in the first round of the playoffs. Irving can opt out of his current deal to become a free agent this summer, and the Nets remain non-committal about keeping the point guard for the long-term. It is the very beginning stages of what could...
    Getty Kyrie Irving #11 of the Brooklyn Nets tries to keep the ball from James Harden #1 of the Philadelphia 76ers . As a part of the trade that had the Brooklyn Nets trade All-Stars James Harden and Paul Millsap to the Philadelphia 76ers for Ben Simmons, Seth Curry, and Andre Drummond, the Nets also received two first-round draft picks from the Sixers. Per ESPN insider Adrian Wojnarowski, the Nets received Philadelphia’s unprotected 2022 first-round pick, with the right to defer it to 2023, as well as a top-8-protected 2027 first-round pick. The Nets are expected to once again be title contenders in 2023 and are looking to add players who can contribute to their team from day one. It is the reason that one NBA executive expects general manager Sean Marks and the Nets front office to defer the pick that is available to use this year, until 2023. “There is too much for them to figure out to be able to make that pick this year,” one NBA source told Heavy.com’s, Sean Deveney. “They want young...
    Getty At the beginning of the 2021-22 NBA season, the Brooklyn Nets were viewed as the favorites to win the NBA title. But despite them having an amass of talent, Brooklyn was unable to even reach the conference finals for the second consecutive season after a 4-0 sweep in the first round of this year’s playoffs at the hands of the Boston Celtics. And though the Celtics are no doubt one of the top contenders in the Eastern conference, not being able to register a win with a team led by Kyrie Irving and Kevin Durant is not a great look for anyone involved. The Nets despite having several household names on their team, are missing something on their roster. And that something could be future Hall of Famer LeBron James. While the idea of the Nets landing LeBron is viewed by him as a ‘fairytale’, Kristian Winfield of the New York Daily News” outlines what a LeBron to the Nets trade would look like. “So what would it take for the Nets to add LeBron this offseason?...
    Kevin Durant, Kyrie Irving and LeBron James walk into Barclays Center. What sounds like the makings of a bad dad joke could be a dream come true if LeBron ever forced his way to Brooklyn via trade, and “The King” got the trade wheels turning when he suggested he’d love an opportunity to play with the two Nets’ stars on social media. It’s fun to dream about and even more fun to simulate on NBA 2K22. In reality, the cost of the Nets doing business with the Lakers would be way too steep. And unrealistic. A deal involving LeBron would signal a massive failure for a Lakers franchise that went all-in on his talents four years ago, which paved the way for the team to win an NBA title in the Orlando bubble in 2020. As bad as the Lakers were last season — they failed to qualify for the Play-In Tournament with a roster headlined by three future Hall of Famers — all indications point to Russell Westbrook’s departure from the team being far more likely than a deal...
    Getty James Harden was reportedly not the first option for the Sixers. The Philadelphia 76ers acquired James Harden in a blockbuster deal that sent Ben Simmons to the Brooklyn Nets. By pulling off this trade, the expectation was that the Sixers could compete for a championship, but it all fell apart in the second round against the Miami Heat. Harden has been very up and down with Philadelphia as there are some games where he looks like the Harden of old, and then there are others where he looks like his best days are long behind him. His playmaking ability is still top-tier, but his scoring has become very inconsistent, and that dates back to him joining the Nets. Harden is due for a massive contract extension, and now there are questions about whether it’s worth handing that out or not. If Embiid’s initial plan came into fruition, then the Sixers wouldn’t be in this situation according to Bill Simmons. Simmons claimed on his podcast that Embiid didn’t initially want Harden to come over in the trade, and...
    Getty LaVar Ball LaVar Ball is back in the news, this time for his prediction about what the Los Angeles Lakers will do this summer. In a May 18 interview with David Kaplan, Ball said Zach LaVine will leave the Chicago Bulls this offseason and sign with the Lakers. LaVine is an unrestricted free agent and has the same agent as LeBron James and Anthony Davis. “He’s gone,” Ball said, via NBC Sports Chicago. “They’re gonna love him in LA. It started off, ‘Zach LaVine, Zach LaVine, Zach LaVine.’ OK, now you’re hurt. Few things happen. And guess who’s doing all the big plays? All I hear is DeMar (DeRozan). He (LaVine) doesn’t want to play second fiddle. “And who doesn’t want to go to LA? (If) he (LaVine) wants to go back to the west coast, he’d be like, ‘Yeah, I’m from (Seattle)’. … If he got a chance to go there? I guarantee you he ain’t no fool. Because he’s like this: ‘I’m in LA, even when I get paid, I know I can do some...
    Getty Lakers star Anthony Davis The Los Angeles Lakers acquired Anthony Davis from the New Orleans Pelicans in the summer of 2019 and had immediate success. They won the 2020 championship over the Miami Heat in the Walt Disney World bubble and rewarded Davis with a five-year, $189.9 million deal in December 2020. Since Davis signed that lucrative contract, though, he’s only played in 76 regular-season games due to injuries. The Lakers lost to the Phoenix Suns in the first round of the 2021 playoffs and missed the postseason this year. Davis hasn’t been able to stay healthy over the past two seasons. As a result, some pundits believe the Lakers should test the trade market for the All-Star big man this summer. If they do, Zach Buckley of Bleacher Report has a trade idea involving the Atlanta Hawks. In his May 19 column, Buckley proposed that the Lakers trade Davis to the Hawks for John Collins, Kevin Huerter and a 2023 first-round pick. “As a mental exercise, though, it’s an intriguing option for the Lakers to expand...
    Getty Kyrie Irving #11 of the Boston Celtics after his press conference at TD Garden. No matter what happened between Kyrie Irving and the Boston Celtics leading up to his departure from the team, Kyrie has never wavered from his stance that he was initially excited to join the Celtics when they traded for him back in the summer of 2017. For both basketball and non-basketball reasons. In a recent interview on the show, “I Am Athlete” with former NFL Players Brandon Marshall, Pacman Jones, and LeSean McCoy, Kyrie opened up about the summer of 2017 on May 16, 2022.

    Basketball star Kyrie Irving is blaming the media for fabricating drama between him and former teammate LeBron James. Speaking on Monday’s episode of I Am Athlete he blamed the media for running with the idea that he had asked to be traded from the Cleveland Cavaliers in 2017 as a bid to get away from James. He said, “We gotta be cool as brothers, whether we’re playing together or whether we’re not playing together. We have to protect one another because it will seep into family life where people will really think that we don’t like each other based on us not being able to play together anymore. You know what I mean? ‘You asked for a trade, so you must hate that dude.’ — That’s not true. So I had to defend myself. He had to defend himself. Right. And it was like, I’m trying to put that to bed so I could continue to build my own legacy, but I’m continuously reminded over and over again.” “Right,” agreed football player LeSean McCoy “‘Yo, you left...
    Getty Lakers guard Russell Westbrook Back in March, Jake Fischer of Bleacher Report reported that the Los Angeles Lakers and Russell Westbrook have mutual interest in parting ways this offseason and “Ball Don’t Stop” has a trade idea involving the Phoenix Suns. On May 16, “Ball Don’t Stop” urged the Lakers to trade Westbrook to the Suns for Chris Paul, who has a close relationship with LeBron James. If Lakers offer the Suns Russell Westbrook for Chris Paul this summer, I’d take it if I’m the Suns. If you neutralize Booker, the Suns aren’t going nowhere. Chris isn’t a scoring PG, he’s a pure point a floor general (what Lakers need) Suns need a guy who can get 25 and 8. pic.twitter.com/pbA2MuzKMM — Ball Don't Stop (@balldontstop) May 16, 2022 Westbrook averaged 18.5 points, 7.4 rebounds and 7.1 assists while shooting 44.4% from the floor, 29.8% from beyond the arc and 66.7% from the free-throw line for the Lakers this season. Meanwhile, Paul put up 14.7 points, 4.4 rebounds and 10.8 assists per game for the Suns...
    Getty Lakers guard Russell Westbrook Russell Westbrook was a bad fit next to LeBron James and Anthony Davis, so much so that the Los Angeles Lakers are widely expected to try to trade the one-time MVP this offseason. Westbrook was second in the NBA in turnovers this season and his effective field goal percentage of 47.6% was sixth-worst in the league. A nine-time All-Star, Westbrook has a player option worth $47,063,478 for next season. If he picks it up, the Lakers can trade him and one trade idea involving the Philadelphia 76ers is intriguing. Per CBA rules, the Lakers could trade Westbrook and two future first-round picks to the Sixers for James Harden, who also has a player option for the 2022-23 season. Harden’s player option is worth $47,366,760. The Sixers traded Ben Simmons, Seth Curry, Andre Drummond and draft picks to the Brooklyn Nets for Harden. However, the trade didn’t result in a championship. Philadelphia lost to the Miami Heat in the second round of the playoffs in six games and Harden was a ghost in the second...
    With LeBron James entering his final year with the L.A. Lakers, famed NBA coach and Lakers adviser Phil Jackson is reportedly suggesting that the team trade LeBron James. According to L.A. Times columnist Bill Plaschke, Lakers owner Jeanie Buss says that Jackson is advising that the team make a big change. “I’ve heard that Phil would like LeBron traded. I’ve just heard that, but I’ve got nothing to back that up. No on-the-record stuff to back that up. I do know that Phil would like to keep Westbrook and try to make that work with him,” Plaschke said Tuesday on the Doug Gottlieb Show. Buss also noted that she is getting council from Jackson and Magic Johnson, but she added that she still supports Rob Pelinka. The Lakers owner also said that she is good friends with Jackson, and, of course, she dated him for a while. “People see us around town, we have breakfast, lunch, dinner, whatever… it’s not anything romantic,” she said of Jackson. “He’s somebody that knows this environment and knows the challenges I have and...
    With the Lakers not making the NBA playoffs this season, a lot of speculation has been centered around the future of the franchise and its’ star player LeBron James. Some suggest keeping James and trading all the parts around him for hopefully better (and more healthy) talent in the upcoming season. Others, like Stephen A. Smith, suggested the opposite: the Lakers should trade their best asset in James and start over. The idea is baffling to most, including ESPN’s Jay Williams who went off the ESPN personality Thursday on First Take, calling it the most insulting thing Smith has said about quite possibly the G.O.A.T. of basketball. Since it’s his show, Smith started off the conversation, discussing a recent interview with Lakers owner Jeanie Buss, calling out James’ agent, Rich Paul, for meddling with the franchise. “Let me look in the camera and talk to Rich Paul, the head of Klutch Sports, the agent for LeBron James. Sit down, bro. Stop it. Every little thing is disrespectful to LeBron James, every little thing I mean, my god,” Smith said about...
    Getty Lakers star LeBron James Multiple people around the NBA believe the Los Angeles Lakers will trade Russell Westbrook this summer. However, one of the Lakers’ advisors may want to keep the one-time MVP and move on from LeBron James instead. On May 11, Bill Plaschke of the Los Angeles Times went on The Doug Gottlieb Show and the veteran Lakers writer said he’s heard that Phil Jackson wants to trade James and keep Westbrook. According to Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN, Jackson is “significantly involved” in the Lakers’ coaching search. “I’ve heard that Phil would like LeBron traded,” Plaschke said. “I’ve just heard that, but I’ve got nothing to back that up. No on-the-record stuff to back that up. I do know that Phil would like to keep Westbrook and try to make that work with him.” Jackson won five championships with the Lakers and used to date owner Jeanie Buss. The Zen Master doesn’t have a relationship with James, who no longer likes the 11-time champion.James Doesn’t like JacksonIn 2016, Jackson characterized James’ business associates as a “posse.”...
    ESPN’s Mike Greenberg says that not only should the Los Angeles Lakers trade LeBron James, but the star should want to be moved off of the team. The NBA world is waiting to see just what solutions the Los Angeles Lakers will come up with this offseason after they finished 11th in the Western Conference. They are in need of a head coach after firing Frank Vogel and are getting help from Phil Jackson in their search. On the May 4 episode of First Take, ESPN’s Stephen A. Smith shared his belief that the Lakers should strongly consider trading Lebron James. Well, one week later, Smith’s colleague Mike Greenberg said on Get Up that not only should the Lakers consider moving on from James, but that the star should want to be traded elsewhere.

    Getty Images Matisse Thybulle of the Philadelphia 76ers. The Philadelphia 76ers will have some decisions to make this offseason to maintain a championship-level roster and a key name that could be on the move is Matisse Thybulle. Thybulle has excelled as a defensive stopper and has carved out a key role for the Sixers since being selected in the first round in 2019. However, Philadelphia has to make a decision soon on his future and could decide to move him before simply losing him if they feel they won’t be able to afford him once his rookie contract is up after next season. Thybulle could also be looking for a new deal this offseason, when he is eligible for an extension. Bleacher Report proposed a trade that would land the Sixers a healthy haul for Thybulle and guard Furkan Korkmaz, sending the duo to the Kings and fetching a pair of second-round picks as well as Justin Holiday and big man Alex Len. Here’s what B/R had to say about the proposed deal: If the Sixers don’t feel...

On Monday May 9 the New York Giants released veteran cornerback James Bradberry after the team was unable to consummate a trade for the former second-round pick, this according to Dan Duggan, who covers the Giants for The Athletic. “Though trade interest in Bradberry was tepid, expect a stronger market to materialize now that teams have the freedom to negotiate a deal from scratch without needing to part with any draft picks,” writes Duggan, who specifically references the Eagles, Chiefs, Raiders, Bengals and Pittsburgh Steelers among potential landing spots.

    Los Angeles Lakers forward LeBron James. (Jayne Kamin-Oncea-USA TODAY Sports) The Los Angeles Lakers had an incredibly disappointing season, wasting one of the final great years of LeBron James’ career. With James, Anthony Davis, and Russell Westbrook still under contract, expect some social media buzz about the team shooting for the moon on some of these “available” players. It’s the Los Angeles Lakers. That’s all you can say when you hear rumors about the Los Angeles Lakers. Its fans are going to take any nugget of information and let it spread like wildfire. Just this week, Toronto Raptors head coach Nick Nurse had to shut down rumors about the Lakers head coaching vacancy. Every great head coach will somehow get tied to the Lakers. Doc Rivers has been tied, Quin Snyder has been tied, and there have even been some rumblings Phil Jackson will return to save the Lakers (but we can probably put that to rest). With so many rumors about who is going to run the team, the rumors about who might join the team are probably taking a...
    Getty Lakers star Anthony Davis The Los Angeles Lakers are widely expected to try to trade point guard Russell Westbrook this offseason after the one-time MVP struggled in 2021-22. Westbrook was second in the NBA in turnovers and shot only 29.8% from beyond the arc. Bleacher Report’s Greg Swartz, though, believes it wouldn’t be a bad idea for the Lakers to test the trade market for Anthony Davis, who has only played in 76 games the past two seasons. In a May 9 column, Swartz proposed that the Lakers trade Davis to the Atlanta Hawks for John Collins, Kevin Huerter and a 2023 first-round pick (top-five protected). “Collins isn’t nearly as talented as Davis, although he’s been more durable and is still just 24 years old,” Swartz wrote. “Since becoming a full-time starter in 2018-19, Collins has averaged 18.5 points, 8.7 rebounds and 1.0 blocks while shooting 55.6 percent overall and 37.9 percent from three. He’d give LeBron James more floor-spacing than Davis could offer and is another excellent lob threat. “Since the Lakers need shooting around James,...
