First it was Lebron James and the media figuring out where the superstar is heading this off season and now multiple topics have increased during the free agency and fans are wondering which player is going to which team. With all these big names up for grab, many teams are most likely going to do their best and recruit them. Among the many topics, these 4 seem to pop up most of the time.
1. Lebron James saga begins....again.
By far the best basketball player in the world as of right now and many people are wondering: will he leave Cleveland? Last time he did it Cavs fans were in outrage, but now since James delivered a championship to the city he really doesn't have a reason to stay. When the best player is looking to become a free agent many teams should consider doing whatever it takes to get him.
2. The Kawhi Leonard unusual situation.
This by far is a major surprise topic. The San Antonio Spurs is an organization that never seems to have any drama at all. One of the best coaches in Gregg Popovich has seems to have a system where veterans and young players can stand shoulder to shoulder and face any team with no fear. So its hard to believe that one of the best players (when he's healthy) is asking to be traded. Kawhi Leonard has been a quiet person and he hasn't said anything regarding these rumors, but one interesting thing is that Leonard feels like the organization lost his trust after his injury. Another fact is that Leonard wishes to go to LA, more specifically the Lakers.
3. Where will Paul George Go?
Following OKC's elimination against the Utah Jazz rumors have been swirling around that Paul George could be leaving the Thunder and looks for a better opportunity to win a championship. Not much is known other than the fact that he might either resign with the team for go to the Lakers. Still he's a star caliber player and should not be overlooked. However rumors have been reporting that he wants to go to the Lakers
4. Are the Los Angeles Lakers finally going to land a big name?
This is something to look into once free agency begins. All those players are in some way being involved in the Lakers organization. They have the money to sign the big names and the team always seem to find themselves in the center of the pre-free agency. Kawhi Leonard wants to go to L.A. more specifically the Lakers, at least that's what the reports say but Gregg Popovich isn't down with that since he does not like helping his Western Conference rivals. There have been reports of Lebron James wanting to go to the Lakers and people assume this could entice Paul George into coming since one James is there and two its his home town.
All these rumors and reports, despite the listed players not saying anything or ignoring the question, can still be just rumors but it does for an interesting off season. Another super team could be in a making to take down the defending champs Golden State Warriors
