REPORT: 76ers and Lakers Could Reportedly Explore LeBron James-Ben Simmons Trade

This can’t really happen.. can it?

The Los Angeles Lakers have become the laughing stock of the NBA after attempting to low-ball LeBron’s former coach, Tyronn Lue and hiring Frank Vogel and now the team could sink to a new low by actually trading LeBron James.

According to Tim Haberstroh of NBC Sports:

It’s early in that process. Leonard’s shot just fell through the net. But one Western Conference executive brought up a name that could be a Simmons trade target: LeBron James.

“I think they very well might explore that,” said a rival executive of Philadelphia.

James doesn’t have a no-trade clause, but he shares the same Klutch Sports agent with Ben Simmons in Rich Paul. James has two seasons left on his deal before he can become a free agent. After a disastrous offseason in which their president of basketball operations abruptly resigned and they struck out on their top two head coaching targets in Monty Williams and Tyronn Lue, do the Los Angeles Lakers honestly believe they can put together a championship contender in the next two seasons?

LeBron, who signed with a four-year deal with the Los Angeles Lakers last summer does not have a no-trade clause which would make this or any trade very possible, should the Lakers decide to go in that direction.

If the Lakers once again strike out in free agency, which is becoming more and more likely by the day, maybe LeBron goes to management and asks for a trade?

Either way, this is definitely something to monitor..

  1. How the mighty have fallen, couldn’t happen to a better person.

    Says a lot that the Lakers are good shipping off LeBron for a guy who can’t shoot beyond the paint. Awesmome talent otherwise

    a lot more useful than ever before.

    Maybe you could space it out better?

  12. May I simply say what a comfort to uncover someone that actually knows what they are discussing on the net.

    You actually know how to bring a problem to light and make it important.
    More people really need to check this out and understand this side
    of the story. I was surprised that you’re not more popular given that you certainly possess
    the gift.

  13. The Zune concentrates on being a Portable Media Player. Not a web browser. Not a game machine. Maybe in the future it’ll do even better in those areas, but for now it’s a fantastic way to organize and listen to your music and videos, and is without peer in that regard. The iPod’s strengths are its web browsing and apps. If those sound more compelling, perhaps it is your best choice.

  14. Between me and my husband we’ve owned more MP3 players over the years than I can count, including Sansas, iRivers, iPods (classic & touch), the Ibiza Rhapsody, etc. But, the last few years I’ve settled down to one line of players. Why? Because I was happy to discover how well-designed and fun to use the underappreciated (and widely mocked) Zunes are.

  16. Zune and iPod: Most people compare the Zune to the Touch, but after seeing how slim and surprisingly small and light it is, I consider it to be a rather unique hybrid that combines qualities of both the Touch and the Nano. It’s very colorful and lovely OLED screen is slightly smaller than the touch screen, but the player itself feels quite a bit smaller and lighter. It weighs about 2/3 as much, and is noticeably smaller in width and height, while being just a hair thicker.

  17. Apple now has Rhapsody as an app, which is a great start, but it is currently hampered by the inability to store locally on your iPod, and has a dismal 64kbps bit rate. If this changes, then it will somewhat negate this advantage for the Zune, but the 10 songs per month will still be a big plus in Zune Pass’ favor.

  20. This is getting a bit more subjective, but I much prefer the Zune Marketplace. The interface is colorful, has more flair, and some cool features like ‘Mixview’ that let you quickly see related albums, songs, or other users related to what you’re listening to. Clicking on one of those will center on that item, and another set of “neighbors” will come into view, allowing you to navigate around exploring by similar artists, songs, or users. Speaking of users, the Zune “Social” is also great fun, letting you find others with shared tastes and becoming friends with them. You then can listen to a playlist created based on an amalgamation of what all your friends are listening to, which is also enjoyable. Those concerned with privacy will be relieved to know you can prevent the public from seeing your personal listening habits if you so choose.

  24. Mastering the art of blackjack may make this dream turn into a reality. The deposit needs to be coming from a debit card with your name (hardly any other deposit methods qualify, such as Moneybookers or another e-wallets). Important: The proportions between the back bet and the lay bet are different on this occasion, even as we are employing the free bet and never our own money.

    have hit the nail on the head. The issue is something
    not enough people are speaking intelligently about. I’m very happy that I came across this during my search for something relating
    to this.
