LeBron James is Reportedly Recruiting Steph Curry to Join the Lakers


Stephen Curry still has another year-plus remaining on his current contract. If he decides he wants to leave Golden State for whatever reason, LeBron James is right there to start recruiting.

Brian Windhorst said on his “Hoop Collective” podcast this week that LeBron wants Curry to play for the Los Angeles Lakers. The recruiting has apparently already begun.

“Steph is eligible for a contract extension this summer, and LeBron started recruiting him at the All-Star break,” Windhorst said, via NBA Central.

While nothing would shock us given the current NBA landscape, the idea of Curry joining LeBron in L.A. seems pretty insane.

The Warriors have had some bad injury luck over the past two years, but they’re hovering around .500 this season even without Klay Thompson. Curry has already won three NBA championships, so his legacy is intact no matter what he does. He’ll also earn just under $46 million next season and is eligible to sign a four-year extension worth roughly $215 million.
