UPDATE (1:30 p.m. ET): The Philadelphia 76ers have engaged the San Antonio Spurs in trade talks for Kawhi Leonard, ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski reported Sunday. James has played in eight straight NBA Finals from the Eastern Conference, with the Miami Heat and then with the Cavaliers. 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. The Sixers are certainly in the running, and if they could land Leonard, possibly by parting with Dario Saric and Robert Covington as well as a future first-round pick to the Spurs, it's a risk.

National Basketball Association star Lebron James has decided not to pick up the player option on the past year of his deal with the Cleveland Cavaliers and will become a free agent, according to ESPN. The scenario that's been placed out there is George and James signing with the Lakers, who haven't made the playoffs the last five years after going 35-47 this season, their best finish since 2012-13. But leading the Cavs in a title win in 2016 to break a 52-year championship drought in the sports-crazed city may allow fans and fellow Cavaliers to forgive some.

That might change if the Lakers are determined to add their second star now.

San Antonio ought to call Leonard's bluff, although their offers for the former San Diego State star are dwindling given the recent decision from James.

It is possible a combination of Harden, James and Paul could win a title, but the chances of it happening seem very slim. James apparently told the Cleveland Cavaliers he will not exercise his 2018-19 player option of receiving $35.6 million.

How could the LA Lakers line up next season if they sign LeBron James and Kawhi Leonard?

Meanwhile, the Boston Celtics have the assets that the Spurs most covet in a potential blockbuster trade for Kawhi.

James isn't expected to attend the meeting, which is the first significant chance for the 76ers to make a free-agent pitch to James, league sources said.

If the Spurs did play ball though, and sent Leonard to the Lakers, they could get a solid package of young players centered on Lonzo Ball, Brandon Ingram, and Kyle Kuzma. Philadelphia would risk losing him in 2019 when he can become a free agent.
