Lakers News And Rumors Recap: Lakers Waiting On LeBron James?


[new_royalslider id=”184″]

The Los Angeles Lakers are one of a few teams that remain without a head coach in place for next season. The rumors have run rampant over the last few weeks over who may be Mike D’Antoni’s successor in Los Angeles, but the team has made it known that they’re in no rush to bring in a new coach and will take their time during their search for a new leader on the sidelines.

Despite talk of waiting to find the right guy to take over in Los Angeles, the team might be waiting for another reason altogether. A rumor surfaced on Monday that the Lakers could be going all-in on an attempt to bring LeBron James to Los Angeles if he opts out of his deal with the Miami Heat.

If such a scenario arises over the summer, the Lakers will be ready without a head coach in place that could derail their attempt to sign arguably the best player in the league. LeBron coming to Los Angeles might be a long shot, but the Lakers aren’t letting the odds stand in their way if there’s even a slight chance they can land the superstar in free agency.
