Lakers reportedly pressured to add Leonard before LeBron decision

Lakers Rumors: LA's Pitch to Sign Paul George Has Been Revealed

The report coming from ESPN's trio of Adrian Wojnarowski, Brian Windhorst and Ramona Shelburne, also states that the Lakers are willing to take on extra salary to acquire a future first round pick to potentially sweeten a deal for Leonard.

Before the Philadelphia 76ers and their fans know it, the Kawhi Leonard situation will finally be figured out, as it seems like only a matter of time before the star forward is no longer a member of the San Antonio Spurs. A Southern California native, Leonard reportedly wants to defect to the Lakers, but that team has a hard choice to make in terms of how many assets to offer the Spurs in a trade, as opposed to possibly being able to wait a year and sign him in free agency.

They see him winning trophies every season with Barcelona - so they expect him to do exactly the same in the national team. Lionel Messi is frustrated and desperate to turn Argentina's World Cup around, according to Javier Mascherano.

It should be interesting to see how everything plays out between Leonard, the Lakers, James, and the Sixers over the next few days.

If, somehow, the Celtics can get Leonard in a package centered around that Sacramento pick and a collection of other decent assets, then the Celtics just might make a next level super team. It's widely believed that James is hesitant to be the first star player to sign with the Lakers while recent reports indicate George might re-sign with the Oklahoma City Thunder. In fact, James might not even speak with top team officials before making a decision on his destination for next season. Leonard has one more year left on his current deal, which will earn him $21.3 million in 2018-19, and will become an unrestricted free agent at the end of next season.

The Cavs have "inquired" about Leonard, according to ESPN.

According to Sports Illustrated, the final pitch is a video with voiceover recited "with more of a Jaime Foxx and less Morgan Freeman/Denzel Washington" tone.
