LeBron Working On Recruiting For The Lakers

The Lakers’ LeBron James is taking the initiative to recruit free agents to the team, according to ESPN’s Brian Windhorst. He has already used his clout to persuade the Raptors’ Kawhi Leonard and the 76ers’ Jimmy Butler to join his team.

“I don’t think LeBron is in position to be too picky,” Windhorst said. “From what I understand he has already begun the recruiting process. I’ve heard he’s had contact with Kawhi Leonard. I’ve heard he’s had contact with Jimmy Butler. There is no tampering enforcement by players and while Magic Johnson, the guy who got in trouble for tampering before, is no longer there LeBron is tamperer-in-chief for the Lakers right now.”

Windhorst is skeptical that LeBron James can use his personal influence to improve the Lakers lineup, which has suffered this season.

“I don’t know if texts and maybe a dinner with LeBron is enough for the Lakers to overcome the hurdles they are gonna have,” Windhorst said.

But that won’t stop LeBron from trying: rumor has it he is also talking to former Cleveland Cavaliers teammate Kyrie Irving, now with the Boston Celtics, about coming to the Lakers. But sports fans remain doubtful, saying Irving is more likely to follow another former Cavs teammate, Kevin Durant, to the Knicks.
