LeBron James trade rumors swirl as Lakers' negotiations for new coach stall

Former Cavaliers coach Tyronn Lue is apparently on his way to becoming the next main man with the Lakers

According to multiple reports, the Los Angeles Lakers and Tyronn Lue have chose to cut off contract talks to make Lue the next head coach.

Brad Turner reports that Lue's final offer was for three years and $18 million.

Lue and Philadelphia assistant Monty Williams had both been interviewed twice for the position but Williams moved on after being hired by the Phoenix Suns.

Obviously, none of those names are going to excite Lakers fans, but at this point, it's becoming clear that the team doesn't have as much leverage as it thinks it does as it seeks a replacement for the fired Luke Walton. As a coach, he and Lakers star LeBron James won a championship together with the Cleveland Cavaliers in 2016. That included a 37-45 record this season that represented a massive disappointment, given the expectations that followed the signing of James last summer as well as the anticipated development of the Lakers' young talent.

ESPN's Stephen A. Smith appeared on "SportsCenter" late Wednesday afternoon and mentioned the possibility of Lakers owner Jeanie Buss potentially trading the superstar.

The politically sensitive trade surplus with the U.S. remained large, widening to $21 billion last month from $20.5 billion in March.

I get that Buss and those close to her don't want LeBron running the organization, but no one in their right mind is telling anyone with the Lakers to trade him.

"You've got folks around Jeanie Buss imploring her to trade LeBron James".

Despite James' addition, the Lakers missed the playoffs for a franchise-high six consecutive seasons.

Sure, Magic Johnson quit as Lakers president of basketball operations right as the season ended.
