Warriors Offer LeBron James to Lakers, But Rejected Before Trade Deadline

In a surprising turn of events, the Golden State Warriors reportedly made an offer to the Los Angeles Lakers for LeBron James before the trade deadline, but the offer was ultimately rejected.

According to reports, Warriors owner Joe Lacob reached out to Lakers owner Jeanie Buss 24 hours before the trade deadline to propose a trade for James. The offer was said to be encouraged by Warriors player Draymond Green, who also enlisted the help of James’ agent, Rich Paul, in an attempt to persuade the Lakers star to join the Warriors.

However, neither the Lakers nor James himself showed any intention of making a trade. According to sources, Buss informed Lacob that she had no intention of trading James, but wanted to consult with James’ agent about his thoughts on the matter. Ultimately, Rich Paul informed the Warriors’ leadership that James was not interested in a trade and preferred to stay with the Lakers.

Additionally, it was reported that Lakers general manager Rob Pelinka consistently expressed the team’s desire to keep James in the hours leading up to the trade deadline.

James, who has a $51.4 million player option this year, is expected to focus on reaching a new contract agreement with the Lakers during the offseason. However, it is anticipated that other teams, including the Warriors, may pursue James once free agency begins.

As the NBA offseason approaches, all eyes will be on the future of LeBron James and the potential for a new contract with the Lakers or a potential move to another team.
