Iconic LeBron James banner coming down in Cleveland

Gary A. Vasquez-USA TODAY Sports

Leonard, who wants the Spurs to trade him, has reportedly made it clear that he prefers to head to the Los Angeles Lakers.

LeBron James is one of the best players in National Basketball Association history and now he's joining one of the league's most storied franchises.

LaVar Ball called LeBron James the "best player in the game", and said his son Lonzo would make a good sidekick when the two team up for the LA Lakers next season.

According to reports, free-agent big man DeMarcus Cousins reached a one-year deal with the Warriors for $5.3 million. Though with James joining the team this week, the Lakers' starting lineup is going to look completely different next season. As now constructed, the Lakers are nowhere near championship contention, even with James. Even though they didn't sign a star like Paul George, the Lakers have a lot of talent on the roster now, with a good mix of youth and veterans.

At the trade deadline, Thomas, fan favorite Channing Frye and a first-round pick would be sent to the Los Angeles Lakers in a move that would net them Jordan Clarkson and Cavs legacy player Larry Nance Jr. James may have chosen to sign with the Lakers for reasons outside of competing for a championship as early as this season, but maximizing the team's ability to compete during the final years LeBron's career should be the main priority.

Then, news broke that the San Antonio Spurs' Kawhi Leonard wanted out, and his preferred destination was the Lakers.

That means the Celtics, despite only re-signing Australian center Aron Baynes and adding EuroLeague guard Brad Wanamaker so far, are one of the NBA's biggest winners so far during free agency. They still ain't gonna win with this team right here-the Lakers with LeBron! It's been a sad three or four years for them. The 2,600-pound banner was originally installed in 2014 when James returned to the Cavaliers from the Miami Heat.

The status of Julius Randle, who is a restricted free agent, appears in doubt. Cedi Osman came over from Turkey, Ante Zizic and Rodney Hood were acquired through trade, and Collin Sexton was selected eighth overall in this past draft. And let us not forget that the shortstop is under contract through 2021.
