So much for LeBron James to the Lakers...

As impossible at it may sound, people were hoping that the Los Angeles Lakers would be clearing cap space to join the bumper crop of free-agents for the 2010 sweepstakes. We're looking at a group of impending free agents that include LeBron James, Dwayne Wade, Chris Bosh, Amare Stoudemire, Paul Pierce, Dirk Nowitzki, Yao Ming, and Tony Parker. Even Lakers Pau Gasol, Kobe Bryant, and Sasha Vujacic will be unrestricted free agents by then. (Thanks to RealGM for this free agent list)

The consensus is that LeBron James is the grand prize of that lot. People are already speculating if he's bolting Cleveland to join a new team as early as this season started. The popular opinion is that Bron will be in New York two years from now.

All the hypothetical talk of LeBron to the New York Knicks may have come closer to being facts as the Knicks traded Jamal Crawford, Zach Randolph and Mardy Collins in two separate deals to free up an estimated $27 million... enough money to make a run at LeBron and perhaps Dwayne Wade. This amount could also have the Knicks make a run at LeBron plus two solid starting rotation players.

While the Lakers can still be players at the 2010 free agent sweepstakes, I'm betting LeBron James won't be going for purple and gold.
