LeBron James free agency: Cavs star impressed by young Lakers

James and the Cleveland Cavaliers are in Los Angeles taking on the Lakers today, one of the teams reportedly in the hunt for LeBron's signature later this year. The Kid from Akron has played in 66 games with the Cavs this season, averaging 26.9 points on 54.3 percent shooting from the field (37.1 percent from beyond the arc), 9.0 assists and 8.4 rebounds. There were also a lot of handshakes, smiles, and pleasantries exchanged in the middle of the court between Thomas and his former teammates. Meanwhile, the Cavs (38-28) have dropped down to No. 4 in the Eastern Conference standings, with the Indiana Pacers (39-28) moving a half-game ahead of them.

LeBron spotted big man Ante Zizic rolling towards the basket and in the blink of an eye, the Cavs had a wide open dunk.

Los Angeles Lakers forward Julius Randle, left, and Cleveland Cavaliers forward Larry Nance Jr. battle for the rebound. The Cavaliers have won just four of their last 10 games. But he has more than 8,000 assists in his National Basketball Association career. I only played 15 games for them, so it's really not about showing them what I can do.

James could leave Cleveland in free agency this summer and the Lakers are in with a good chance of signing the 14-time NBA All Star if they can prove they are capable of challenging for championships.

Dario Saric scored 18 points and Ben Simmons had 11 points, six assists and six rebounds for the 76ers, who were able to avenge a disappointing loss to the Nets at Barclays Center in January.

The Cavs could not overcome a hot-shooting Lakers team Sunday, but James played well putting up his second straight double-double.

Considering the Lakers' youth, it's actually a quality that coach Luke Walton appreciates.

Davis had 25 points, 11 rebounds and a career-high 10 blocks in his return from a sprained left ankle that sidelined him for one game.

The Lakers had held a 72-63 lead with less than three minutes gone in the second half, which resulted in a Cavaliers response that saw them run off nine unanswered points to tie the game. He is progressing well, but the Lakers expect him to miss at least two more games. That helped Los Angeles hold a 33-29 advantage after 12 minutes of action.
