What James will do remains to be seen, but a number of reports have LeBron eyeing a possible move to the Los Angeles Lakers, on the contingency that he could entice another superstar to join him.
Apparently, one of the delays to date has been James' commitment to his National Basketball Association contract with Cleveland Cavaliers (don't ask me, not my sport).
The 28-year-old beat the Cleveland Cavaliers' four-time MVP LeBron James and the New Orleans Pelicans' Anthony Davis to the prestigious award.
The 33-year-old's future was a leading topic of discussion during the past season but it has now gone into overdrive following the NBA Finals earlier this month when the Golden State Warriors sweeped the Cavaliers. Vardon reports that there was no contract between James or Durant's camp.
Apparently James wants Durant to come to Los Angeles with him, but it would not make sense for Durant to do so.

While most of the elements seen here are optional, the DBS Superleggera won't come from the factory with limited features. Word has it that it'll run 0-60 miles per hour (97 km/h) in just 3.4 seconds, while 0-100mph takes 6.4 seconds.
Could the two best players in the National Basketball Association team up in Los Angeles? But they will be barred from receiving players in sign-and-trade deals, which means they would need to clear cap space.
"This tells me a lot actually".
Smith said that he didn't know Durant's response to James' texts, but did say behind the scenes that Durant remains disinterested in leaving his two-time champion Golden State Warriors.
The Lakers will be able to officially speak with James on July 1, assuming he does not exercise his player option. I'm the reigning two-time NBA Finals MVP.
