Report: Eastern Conference contender could try to sign LeBron James…Read more.

LeBron James is anticipated to decline his player option with the Los Angeles Lakers for the upcoming season, potentially opening the door for other teams to pursue him as a free agent. One Eastern Conference team frequently linked to James is the Philadelphia 76ers. Keith Pompey of The Philadelphia Inquirer reiterated on Sunday that the 76ers are committed to acquiring a third star to complement Joel Embiid and Tyrese Maxey, with James being a mentioned target.

The Sixers have over $60 million in salary cap space, allowing them to potentially sign a max player, though they might need to allocate some of that to extend Tyrese Maxey’s contract.

There has been no clear indication that LeBron James plans to leave the Lakers. However, with his son Bronny entering the NBA, the situation could become more complex. If LeBron prioritizes playing with Bronny, the 76ers are reportedly willing to draft Bronny to entice LeBron.

The 76ers reportedly view another player as an ideal fit for their team but are keeping all options open.
