LeBron James will be traded? Those are the latest rumors swirling regarding the Los Angeles Lakers star. In a recent report, it has been said that Lakers president Jeanie Buss is being encouraged to trade one of the best players in the league.
The report comes from none other than ESPN’s Stephen A. Smith.
“Nothing is out of bounds right now,” Smith said during an appearance on SportsCenter. “We don’t know what the hell is going on in Los Angeles. You’ve got folks close to Jeanie Buss imploring her to trade LeBron James. He does not have a no-trade clause, and now you haven’t given him the coach that he wanted.”

The news comes shortly after Magic Johnson decided to step down from the organization.
When Johnson decided to step away, LeBron was not happy. He addressed the situation on the latest episode of his HBO show The Shop along with fellow Lakers star Lonzo Ball.
“My right hand comes to me and say, ‘Magic just stepped down.’ I’m like man, get the f*ck out of my face, you bullsh*tting. I go check my phone, I look at it, the sh*t happened,” he said. “Personally for me, I came here to be a part of the Lakers organization, having the conversation with Magic. So, it was just weird for [Magic Johnson] to just be like, ‘Nah, I’m out of here.”
We will have to see what happens next with the Lakers star.
