Do the Rockets still have a chance for LeBron James?

  • LeBron James averaged 27.5 points 9.1 assists and 8.7 rebounds this past season. More

Stay tuned. Decision III is this summer's blockbuster, and it's coming soon.

Four-time NBA MVP LeBron James will not meet in person with the Cleveland Cavaliers when NBA free agency officially opens Sunday at 12:01 a.m. ET, ESPN's Dave McMenamin reports.

The Cavaliers can offer James the most money under National Basketball Association rules, a five-year deal worth $209 million, and he could also sign a short-term deal. But the Cavaliers are over the league's $101 million salary cap, whether they re-sign James or not.

With LeBron James arriving in Los Angeles ahead of free agency and reports that he's not scheduled to have a meeting with the Cavaliers at the start of free agency, the evidence continues to mount that James is headed to the Lakers. That's due in part to the simple fact that Paul also has other clients that will be in the free agent market.

Excessive and unsafe heat grips Plains, Midwest and Northeast
Symptoms of heat stroke include hot body temperature, hot/red/dry/moist skin, rapid and strong pulse and possible unconsciousness. A cold front will finally bring relief by the end of the week along with some showers and thunderstorms.

The NBA free agent period begins Sunday.

They are expected to pursue Los Angeles Clippers centre DeAndre Jordan, who reportedly declined his US$24 million option on Friday. The fan had supposedly followed the formers Cavs star from the airport to get the footage, which literally just shows two black SUV's and no sight of James at all.

LeBron will reportedly not be taking any big meetings with teams in free agency.

James, 33, would have made $35.6 million in the 2018-19 season had he exercised his option with the Cavs.

Godin, Ronaldo clash as Uruguay take on Portugal
Portugal winger Gelson Martins and left-back Raphael Guerreiro are in contention to play after they returned to full training. With 27 meetings against Ronaldo in the fiery Madrid derby, Godin knows how to shackle the evergreen forward.

Even more exciting, this means the Los Angeles Lakers have a legitimate chance of signing James, that is assuming he is willing to leave the Cavaliers for a second time in his career.

It was proposed that the Lakers could be looking to form a superteam with James lining up alongside Paul George and Kawhi Leonard at the Staples Center. He showed no signs of slowing down, if anything he had found a new gear. And although the two sides have been in touch since the Cavs were swept by the Warriors in the NBA Finals, no face-to-face meeting is imminent. The USA Today listed a few possible players who might be willing to play with James for the minimum.

According to Nick Wright of Fox Sports, free-agent small forward LeBron James has informed those close to him of the decision about his future and everyone should "expect the official announcement Tuesday morning".

It only gets more wild from there though as a fan posted video appeared to show James' auto, closely tailed by a black van carrying his luggage.

Trump calls Supreme Court travel ban ruling 'a moment of profound vindication'
The American Civil Liberties Union said the decision will " go down in history as one of the Supreme Court's greatest failures". Allowing discrimination to emanate from our nation's highest office undermines the Constitution and our values as a nation.
