LeBron James might be trying to make some big moves for the Los Angeles Lakers way before the 2020 free agency. The King has been known as a very persuasive recruiter and the addition of Andre Drummond to the purple and gold in recent days is the perfect example of that.
But, that might not be it for LeBron, as the player is reportedly trying to make the biggest moves in his career, trying to lure one of the best players in the league away from his current team. According to Brian Windhorst of ESPN, the LBJ has started working on getting Stephen Curry to sign with the Lakers next year, something that would break the entire NBA.
Curry and Bron were seen having a blast during the All-Star Game, playing together for the first time in their careers. At the time, fans started joking about the possibility of Curry joining James in Los Angeles and it seems like LeBron had the same idea.
"Steph is eligible for a contract extension this summer, and LeBron started recruiting him in the All-Star break," Windhorst said on the Brian Windhorst and The Hoop Collective show.
If you told people that Bron would actually try to pull this off a couple of years ago, they would have looked at you like you're crazy but this is the NBA and we've seen a lot of crazy things in the past. It's not like Curry will actually go play with the Lakers but he's yet to sign a contract extension with the Warriors and the player told the Warriors GM Bob Myers that they will talk about that at the end of the year.
Kendrick Perkins also dropped this idea and more fans are started to think there's some truth behind all these rumors putting Steph on the Lakers. If that actually happens, the NBA world would go crazy. If James Harden to the Nets was big, just imagine what Curry to the Lakers would mean for everybody.
