[new_royalslider id=”298″]

With superstar LeBron James intending to opt out of his deal with the Miami Heat, teams around the league will be hoping to get an opportunity to talk to the perennial All-Star. The Los Angeles Lakers are one of those teams, according to Mike Bresnahan of the L.A. Times:

The Lakers are intrigued by LeBron James reportedly opting out of his contract and are hopeful of meeting with the free agent-to-be, The Times has learned.

As of right now, many believe that LeBron will simply re-sign with the Heat. Miami needs the Big 3 of LeBron, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh to opt out in order to give the team more leverage in free agency and potentially sign another star player like Carmelo Anthony.

Even though Miami is likely high on LeBron’s list of suitors, the four-time NBA MVP will test the market with teams like the Lakers and Cleveland Cavaliers ready to sign him to a lucrative long-term deal.

Carmelo has also peaked the Lakers’ interest with the team also expected to speak to the star forward. Los Angeles has a better chance of landing Anthony opposed to LeBron, but the start of free agency is still days away on July 1 and anything can happen once things get underway.
