Insider Reveals Sixers’ Top Threat To Land LeBron James Despite Lakers’ Strong Position To Retain Star

The Philadelphia 76ers emerge as a formidable contender in the race for LeBron James, challenging the Lakers’ efforts. Read more details.

According to ESPN’s Brian Windhorst, the Philadelphia 76ers pose a possible, but not serious, threat in signing LeBron James from the Los Angeles Lakers. Windhorst shared on Get Up that while the 76ers are contenders, the Lakers have a robust position to keep James.

He also noted Sixers’ president Daryl Morey’s decade-long pursuit of the four-time MVP and his ability to offer a max contract due to the available salary cap space. Keith Pompey of the Philadelphia Inquirer cited Sunday that the Sixers, with ample cap space, are exploring several possibilities.

The LA Clippers’ Paul George is prioritized given his potential to part ways with his current team. LeBron James and the New York Knicks’ OG Anunoby are also on their radar.

The stronghold of the argument against James leaving Los Angeles is extremely straightforward. If James desired to leave, he would have done it by now.

At age 39, James has shown more loyalty to the Lakers than he has to the Miami Heat or the Cleveland Cavaliers during his second stint. Despite the Lakers failing to qualify for the playoffs in the 2021-2022 season, he stuck with the team, sparking speculations of a possible hope for another championship.
