Going out an getting one of the league's best players - albeit, with some clear baggage that needs sorting through right now - would send a very direct message about the "NBA landscape" to James.

Earlier today, Bleacher Report's Tom Haberstroh published an article kicking off "LeBron Week", which laid out all the reasons James should consider signing with the Rockets.

He seemingly plays well with only IN, but maybe the Pacers have just had enough of him. The mutual interest is there, it's just a question of whether or not the Lakers can come through. Ahead of Friday's deadline to declare himself a free agent, bet makers are shuffling their odds, the sports media is working itself into a lather, and anxious fans are reading the tea leaves of James' social media profiles.

With rumors of Paul George re-signing with the Thunder, a huge wrench may have been thrown into the Lakers plan.

The move is entirely possible as well as the Lakers have room to offer two maximum contracts for both James and George while having the assets to offer a suitable trade for Leonard.
