CLEVELAND, Ohio – The bonanza of free agencies this summer has been so exciting that there are already people who are not looking for just a year, but until the 2021 season.
It was recently revealed that the agreement between Kawhi Leonard and the Los Angeles Clippers would not be valid for four years. Instead, Leonard has signed three years, $ 103 million contract with the team that includes a player option for the third year.
This would allow Leonard to become a free-agent again after the 2020-2021 season, placing him on a list that also includes big stars like new Clippers teammate Paul George, MVP Gianni Antetokounmpo, Chris Paul, Blake Griffin, Bradley Beal and a LeBron James.
That's right, James can once again hold the NBA world hostage in the summer of 2021, as unlikely as it may seem. So yes, there is a small chance that James decides to close the Hollywood scene and return home in northeastern Ohio.
In case you're wondering, his Lakers teammate, Anthony Davis, may choose not to participate in his contract after next season. However, Davis is expected to sign a long-term contract with Los Angeles.
James will also be 36 in 2021 and a $ 41 million guarantee if he stays with the Lakers (according to Bleacher Report). And who knows how long James wants to play?
There is also the factor of his son Bronny, a remarkable high school player who has the potential of the NBA but can not enter the league for many years. James said his dream would be to play alongside his son. Could this play a role in the end of his LeBron career?
