Lebron James lands in Los Angeles Saturday

With the announcement of LeBron James' decision to leave the Cleveland Cavaliers and head for Los Angeles with a four-year, $154 million contract in tow, the betting lines have changed seismically in Las Vegas.

Had James opted in on Friday, the Cavaliers' brass would have considered that a bad sign, as they believed that his biggest motivation to do so would be in order to accommodate a trade to another team that didn't have the cap space to sign him outright, such as the Houston Rockets. The Lakers have a number of intriguing young players, including Brandon Ingram, Lonzo Ball and Kyle Kuzma, that they may look to trade as they enter "win now" mode. Imagine how good they could be if they added two top-five players?

San Antonio ought to call Leonard's bluff, although their offers for the former San Diego State star are dwindling given the recent decision from James. All signs point to James going to the Lakers and while some reasons people think that are incredibly ludicrous, the Lakers is the likely destination.

Philadelphia would risk losing him in 2019 when he can become a free agent.
