With LeBron, Lakers suddenly a betting favorite

On Thursday, George told the Oklahoma City Thunder he's declining his US$20.7-million option for next season. He signed last summer to a $23 million, one-year contract and provided stout 3-point shooting and needed veteran presence on a young team.

The biggest need in Philly is shooters, so it made sense to learn that the Sixers were bringing Redick back for the 2018-19 season on another one-year deal, but this time for a much lower price.

The 76ers moved quickly to close on Redick's deal once LeBron James chose to join the Los Angeles Lakers. Don't be surprised if some players sign a one-year deal and enter free agency again next summer when more teams project to have cap space and the salary cap is expected to rise.

Do the Rockets still have a chance for LeBron James?
That's due in part to the simple fact that Paul also has other clients that will be in the free agent market. James, 33, would have made $35.6 million in the 2018-19 season had he exercised his option with the Cavs.

James was on a plane that flew into Van Nuys Airport near Los Angeles on Saturday.

If free agents have to take less because the market is bad, they might as well join a star-studded team that all eyes will be on when the 2018-19 season tips off.

According to ESPN insider Bobby Marks, Cleveland can offer James a more lucrative deal than any other team - a five-year max contract in the neighborhood of $205 million. Teams can begin negotiations with free agents at 12:01 a.m. Sunday.

USA charges hundreds in healthcare fraud, opioid crackdown
More than 42,000 Americans died from opioid overdoses in 2016, according to the latest numbers from the U.S. They are being charged for their roles in prescribing and distributing addictive painkillers.

The Spurs are reportedly hoping to send him to an Eastern Conference team if they do decide to make a trade, and drew strong interest from a 76ers team that "badly wants" Leonard.

James then carried the Cavs, with their flawed roster after a massive trade-deadline turnover, through the Eastern Conference playoffs - they survived two Game 7s and swept the top-seeded Toronto Raptors - to the National Basketball Association finals for a fourth straight showdown with the Golden State Warriors.

Redick is arguably coming off a career year in Philadelphia, averaging a career high 17.1 points per game at a very nice 42 percent clip from beyond the arc.
