LeBron James next team: Eight most likely destinations as free agency CONFIRMED

Sixers Mailbag and free agency primer

Redick has reportedly agreed to a one-year deal worth $12 to $13 million. With star power that would all but guarantee a playoff spot, many free agents will give them strong consideration (even if other teams are offering more money).

James had been widely tipped to join the Los Angeles Lakers, where he can continue to develop business interests such as his media venture, Uninterrupted, in one of the nation's largest markets. It keeps them a top-three team inside what now becomes a wide-open Eastern Conference race.

In 2010, James bolted Cleveland in a nationally televised announcement "The Decision" infamously declaring he was taking his "talents to South Beach" and joining the Miami Heat. Philadelphia's ownership group met with LeBron James on Sunday but failed to sway him to sign with the team.

If free agents have to take less because the market is terrible, they might as well join a star-studded team that all eyes will be on when the 2018-19 season tips off.

The Sixers already have the cap space to simply sign LeBron James, so if they were able to make a trade for Leonard, they wouldn't have to make any subsequent moves to add "The King".

James' camp and the Cavaliers' front office have maintained a dialogue since the season ended, sources said.

Los Angeles is among the teams in the mix to land James after his agent told the Cleveland Cavaliers on Friday that he will not exercise his $35.6 million contract option for next season. Now that he has, though, let's see if they follow through.

Furthermore, James could sign a one-year deal with Cleveland, with a one year option, so he can have chance at exploring free-agency in 2019. He played all 82 games for the first time and averaged 27.5 points (his most since 2009-10), tied a career high with 8.6 rebounds per game and set a career high with 9.1 assists per game while shooting 54.2 percent from the field.
