Several teams would be hesitant about trading for LeBron James

LeBron James Lakers

The Los Angeles Lakers may miss out on the National Basketball Association playoffs in 2019, but LeBron James expects to play in them in future years. The trade deadline came and went without the Lakers making a major move, but that does not mean there were not discussions behind the scenes.

Looking ahead, it will be interesting as well if Ball can find a way to adjust playing alongside LeBron James.

The toxicity of the failed trade talks, as well as sensitive place the Lakers are in with the league after tampering with Paul George, forced owner Jeanie Buss to consider ending the LeBron-Lakers experiment entirely.

Walton said he spoke to the Lakers about Ingram's condition, and LeBron James said Ingram was with the Lakers earlier in the day before they played without three injured starters in a 120-107 loss to the Celtics.

"James' agent, Rich Paul, was widely accused of spreading those rumors because Davis is also one of his clients". The idea of terminating the franchise's relationship with Paul by moving James at least crossed Buss' mind, the team source said, and Paul was made aware of that. "So you try to get better, but this won't be the last time I'll be in the postseason". In fact, Ball is actually averaging more points per game on a more efficient clip than the seven-year veteran while posting a higher defensive rating. "But right now, it's not the hand I was dealt, so you play the hand that you were dealt until the dealer shuffles the cards and you're dealt another hand and can do that". "LeBron would eviscerate them. The goal is to be the best player I can for whichever team".

The Lakers are all but mathematically eliminated from the playoff race. The Bleacher Report pointed out how the 21-year-old had to endure a knee injury in his rookie season, something that limited him to 52 games.

The Los Angeles Lakers point guard Lonzo Ball has been sidelined for the remainder of the season to get back to full recovery. Some of the names that have been mentioned include Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving.

The Lakers have been in a real funk lately, but they will be breathing a major sigh of relief after taking down the Bulls on Tuesday despite being so shorthanded.
