By Friday, James will have to make a decision whether or not to enter free agency. What if the Lakers then can't get any free agents next summer? With LeBron James, Paul George and other All-Star caliber players hitting the free market, the Lakers are in prime position to pounce.
The Lakers want a deal done ASAP because adding Kawhi could be what ultimately makes LeBron James decide to leave Cleveland (I don't think it's 100% guaranteed at this point). That said, Wojnarowski notes that the Celtics are "extremely cautious" due to the uncertainty with Leonard's health and his strong desire to play for the Lakers.
According to a former National Basketball Association team executive, the Los Angeles Lakers might be among the top candidates in the Cousins sweepstakes, though that would also mean choosing only one of the three players most frequently mentioned as potential new additions to the team - LeBron James, Paul George, or Kawhi Leonard. ESPN reports that San Antonio is "most intrigued" with Boston's assets.
But they're not the only team believing it has that extra incentive to deal for the Spurs star. This report comes in the wake of an earlier one on Wednesday that stated that the Lakers and Spurs had "re-engaged" on talks about a potential Leonard trade.

He also suggested that he should not be judged until after next summer, leaving some uncertainty about this year's free agent class. That would be a blow to the Lakers, who reportedly had been anticipating that George, also a Southern California native, would join them this offseason.
Last seen watching his middle child LiAngelo go undrafted last week, LaVar Ball still exists and could very much be a problem for the Spurs in trade talks. ESPN's Zach Lowe said Thursday on "The Jump" that "not enough people are considering" that James may, indeed, "come alone" to the Lakers.
Getting all three is a scenario that Lakers fans have dreamed about and would bring back memories of the Showtime Dynasty of the 1980s.
