LeBron James and his Los Angeles Lakers haven't exactly seen eye-to-eye lately. James pushed the team to acquire Russell Westbrook, and the front office won't stop blaming him for it through leaks. James praised several other teams and executives at All-Star Weekend, and with his contract set to expire next offseason, his future as a Laker has never been less clear. Just don't expect him to suit up for a new team next season.

James is eligible for a two-year, $97.1 million contract extension this offseason. The Lakers are likely to offer it. But even if he doesn't sign it, The Athletic's Sam Amick reports that Lakers owner Jeanie Buss wouldn't view such a decision as an impetus to trade the four-time MVP.
