LeBron's No. 6 to wait due to Nike issue

Ohm Youngmisuk has covered the Giants, Jets and the National Football League since 2006.

Shortly after Leonard informed the Lakers they were out of consideration, they pivoted to offer Green a two-year, $30 million contract, and followed that deal by reaching agreements with Kentavious Caldwell-Pope, JaVale McGee, Rajon Rondo, Alex Caruso, Quinn Cook, DeMarcus Cousins and eventually Avery Bradley to fill out the roster.

Green added, however, that he did not expect the two team up on Los Angeles Lakers, who Green joined shortly after Leonard's decision was reported.

"I really haven't spent a lot of time either thinking about or characterizing that", Pelinka said in a conference call on how close the Lakers were in the Leonard hunt with the Clippers and Toronto Raptors. We both go out and try to win the game at all costs. And at that point you just don't look back.

Cassidy said New Balance has been capitalizing on Leonard's brand power in real-time, and had products ready to go for the Clippers market, which he said sold quickly once they became available.

It was supposed to be a "Welcome to Los Angeles" housewarming gift from LeBron James to Anthony Davis: LeBron was giving up his No. 23 to Davis and going back to the No. 6 he wore in Miami. This could help offer the Lakers a bit of lineup flexibility as they would ideally like to try and maximize budding star - and fellow forward - Kyle Kuzma's role alongside Anthony Davis and James.

"We are lucky enough to be partnering with an athlete like Kawhi".

Danny Green received the most money of any Lakers' free agent.

"I think the greatest teacher in life for all of us is experience", Pelinka said. I think the year that he had and what those fans brought this season and everything, it was hard for him to turn it down and leave Toronto. Obviously, we've had a chance to play and be teammates previously before this.
