The Los Angeles Lakers aren’t interested in what the Dallas Mavericks could offer in a trade for veteran forward LeBron James, according to Jovan Buha of The Athletic.

“If Dallas is offering Luka Dončić for James, then yes, one would assume the Lakers will listen. But aside from that, the Lakers aren’t going to trade James to the Mavericks. James could try to force their hand, but that would just likely lead to a messy power struggle.”
