According to a new report from ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski, Brian Windhorst and Ramona Shelburne, James "remains hesitant to be the first superstar to decide on the Los Angeles Lakers in free agency".

All of that has turned up the heat on the Lakers to trade for Leonard, who has made it no secret he wants out of San Antonio.

For the Lakers, it will be interesting to see what ultimately happens.

The report claims "there's a race to secure Leonard before James is faced with deciding whether to become a free agent on Friday, especially with concern that Oklahoma City's Paul George is no longer assured of signing with the Lakers". For Kahwi Leonard and the San Antonio Spurs, things are clearly past the stage or repairability.

In the latest batch of Kawhi Leonard trade rumors, the Cleveland Cavaliers reportedly are inquiring about acquiring Leonard.

The Boston Celtics, Cleveland Cavaliers, Philadelphia 76ers and Los Angeles Clippers have reportedly made offers for Leonard. Thus perhaps it should not have been a surprise to see a report Wednesday indicating that James may bolt for Los Angeles and wait to see which other National Basketball Association star joins him there, quickly followed by another report claiming that the four-time MVP was "hesitant" to commit to the Lakers without assurance that the team had already landed some high-profile help. In fact, James might not even speak with top team officials before making a decision on his destination for next season.

Becoming one of the world's greatest.

It's not clear if San Antonio would indeed trade the two-time All-Star to Los Angeles.

James has done a phenomenal job of leading his teams to the NBA Finals year after year.

ESPN reported the number of teams James and his representatives, Rich Paul and Mark Termini, could be interested in as free agents will be small.

At this point, it should be considered a real possibility that the Celtics will try and make something work, but there is still so much in the way of a deal getting done.
