Rumors that LeBron James and Paul George will team up in Los Angeles Lakers
Always exciting to hear these kinds of news especially if your team is on the receiving side of the better end of the deal. While Cleveland seems to be cramming for answers, the Lakers seem to be smoothly positioning themselves for the big offseason ahead.
Isaiah Thomas has a $ 6.3 million and Channing Frye has a $7.3 million both expiring and by taking these players the Lakers would be able to free up at least $50 million salary cap space which may be enough to lure the king to Hollywood.
Within the existing players, there are also expiring contract such as that of Julis Randle which can also further help the cap space to stretch up to $ 70 million.
