If the rumors are true that Bronny is planning on playing basketball there, it's hard to imagine James playing anywhere besides the Los Angeles Lakers.
The Los Angeles Lakers have insurmountable pressure ahead of this free agency period, now counting with only two days to find a way to acquire Kawhi Leonard before LeBron James makes his impending free agent decision, according to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski, Brian Windhorst, and Ramona Shelburne. Oklahoma City Thunder forward Paul George, who has previously expressed a desire to sign with the Lakers, is a free agent, but he could certainly re-sign with OKC. He's also strongly hinted that he wants to sign with the Lakers when he hits free agency next season, so he could be an expensive one-year rental for whomever wins the Kawhi sweepstakes. The Celtics, Cavaliers, 76ers and Clippers have all made offers for Leonard, while the Lakers never made a formal offer after feeling that the Spurs "shut the door on us", a source told ESPN.
Los Angeles will get a better idea on if they have a chance of signing James this summer later this week when the deadline of June 29 approaches for him to opt in or out of his current Cavs deal.

Kyle Kuzma and Brandon Ingram have been featured most prominently in any suggested trade proposals with the Spurs. A third team could take a Laker and send the Spurs a preferable player or draft pick. That pick could be used to sweeten a prospective trade opportunity.
Last week, Chris Mannix of Yahoo Sports reported (via RealGM) that the Spurs aren't interested in Ball because of the "circus" that comes with the 20-year-old.
The Celtics have reportedly made another offer for Kawhi Leonard. Even if San Antonio doesn't like those particular players, the overall value could be about right.
