“Draymond Green Urges Warriors: Keep Kuminga, Reject LeBron Trade”

The Golden State Warriors attempted to make a trade for LeBron James, a superstar with the Los Angeles Lakers, during this season’s NBA trade deadline. Draymond Green mentioned during All-Star weekend conversations with Charles Barkley that he advised the Warriors against trading Jonathan Kuminga. As anticipated, the Lakers showed no interest in trading LeBron.

The Golden State Warriors reached out to the Lakers regarding a potential trade for LeBron James following a cryptic tweet from the NBA star featuring an hourglass emoji, leading to speculation about his happiness in LA. Lakers owner Jeanie Buss instructed Warriors owner Joe Lacob to communicate with LeBron’s agent, Rich Paul of Klutch Sports Group, to discuss any potential trade interest. However, Paul informed Lacob that LeBron was not interested in being traded.

Although LeBron has the option to become an unrestricted free agent this summer by declining his $51.4 million player option for the 2024-25 season with the Lakers, sources indicate that the Warriors will pursue him again if he enters free agency. Despite being the oldest player in the NBA at 39 years old, LeBron remains a dominant force, averaging 24.8 points, 7.2 rebounds, and 7.8 assists per game this season with impressive shooting percentages.
