Philadelphia 76ers to meet with reps for LeBron James

Houston may not be able to afford James, who has a leaning to Los Angeles, where he owns a couple of homes.

When free agency hits at 12:01 a.m. ET on Sunday, don't expect LeBron James to jet off to visit interested suitors. That eliminated the possibility of George and LeBron linking up with the Los Angeles Lakers, and figures to make the Lakers' pursuit of LeBron more hard. This will require him starting from scratch in terms of building chemistry with his teammates, just like he did when he left Cleveland eight years ago and when he returned four years ago. Second time around he exercised an early option to leave the Heat to return to the Cavs.

Cleveland can offer the star more money than any other team in the National Basketball Association - a whopping a five-year max deal worth around $205 million. In fact, James might not even speak with top team officials before making a decision on his destination for next season.

Redick, 34, had a tremendous impact on the 76ers last season, averaging a career-best 17 points and shooting 42 percent from 3-point range.

Suarez inspires Uruguay to win over Russian Federation
Uruguay chose to change from a 442 formation to a 41212 formation, bringing Lucas Torreira into the side as a holding midfielder. The Barcelona striker blew a kiss to the corner of Samara Stadium where most of La Celeste's cheering supporters were seated.

A good way of thinking about this: If James had chosen to stay with the Cleveland Cavaliers, it would be a relatively safe call. Without him, the odds blow out to 500-1.

"Whenever anyone says anything about another individual or about the quality of another individual, or what they're doing, I think the first thing to look at is the substance and gravitas of the source that speaks", he told ESPN.com in January about LaVar's criticism of Lakers coach Luke Walton.

It's probably time to start taking the Philadelphia 76ers seriously in the LeBron James sweepstakes.

The Los Angeles Lakers are in play, with reports stating the offer to the Spurs could include Kyle Kuzma, Josh Hart and Brandon Ingram for Leonard, who has expressed he wants to play in Los Angeles and will be entering the previous year of a contract, meaning if he's not signed by the team he's traded to, if he's traded this offseason, he'll be a costly rental. After Paul George decided not to join the LA team, as widely predicted, the Lakers will now be more determined to land Leonard and ensure James is not a stranded superstar on its roster.
