The rumor mill is in overdrive Aaron Rodgers Packers Jersey , with nuggets such as these: LeBron James has looked at schools in Los Angeles, he’s not particularly fond of Houston and he’s hugging restaurant diners in Miami.

Ah, free agency is back.

It technically starts Sunday at 12:01 a.m. EDT in the East, 9:01 p.m. Saturday out West, but is already well underway everywhere in the sense that everybody is talking about what might happen. James is once again the biggest domino that will fall; he may opt out of his contract, but that doesn’t mean he’ll leave Cleveland – and he may opt in for nearly $36 million next season, but that doesn’t mean he’s certain to be staying, either.

Boston guard Kyrie Irving has a word for these days: Pre-agency.

”That’s actually a title to describe what’s going on now,” Irving said. ”But yeah, we know that 12 a.m. July 1st Leonard Williams Jets Jersey , that’s when it just starts getting nutty.”

James is hardly the only person who will create that nuttiness.

Paul George has a decision to make about his future; stay in Oklahoma City or move on, with the Los Angeles Lakers believed to be his dream destination. San Antonio has big decisions to make about Kawhi Leonard; they can take a risk and keep him for the final year of his contract, offer him a new deal or trade him elsewhere. And what happens in their cases will surely impact what James does, much in the same way the Chris Bosh decision in 2010 helped really pave the way for him to go to Miami.

Thing is, nobody knows what’ll happen. Hence, the intrigue.

”That’s the challenge in this league,” James said during the NBA Finals, when his Cavaliers were swept by Golden State. ”I think every GM and every president and every coaching staff is trying to figure out how they can make up the right matchups to compete for a championship and win a championship.”

The Los Angeles Lakers will have about $61 million in cap space; half the league might not have any. So this summer, with cap space for most teams at a premium, the biggest moves might have to come through trades.

”There has been a lot of discussion with a lot of teams about a lot of players Ezekiel Elliott Jersey Womens ,” Heat President Pat Riley said. ”I just feel there’s a restlessness on the part of teams, and also there’s a reluctance to do things. … It’s hard to pull the trigger on that kind of thing.”

Golden State’s Kevin Durant will be a free agent in name only – he’s already said he’s returning to the Warriors. Golden State will spend free agency bolstering its bench, and the best team in the NBA should be better in the next couple of weeks.

All that’s left to decide there is what terms Durant wants.

”Whatever he wants,” Golden State general manager Bob Myers said. ”Sometimes you don’t negotiate. … He’s earned the right to sign whatever deal he wants. I just want him to sign `a’ deal. I want him to be happy and want him to know that we want him as long as he wants to be here. He’s earned that, to kind of lay out the terms.”

Philadelphia isn’t tampering, but isn’t being shy: Both coach Brett Brown and newly minted rookie of the year Ben Simmons have come out this offseason and said how much a great veteran will help their team.

”Maybe that is a free agent, a big free agent who we can lean on and learn from,” Simmons said.

He didn’t say ”LeBron,” but sure sounds like James.

Houston will look to add James as well in an effort to find the formula that will supplant the Warriors. The Rockets nearly ousted Golden State in the Western Conference finals, wasting double-digit leads in both Game 6 and Game 7 of that series – all while Chris Paul Sean Lee Cowboys Jersey , who seems likely to stay in Houston but could choose to leave, was sidelined with a bad hamstring.

But Rockets star James Harden, the NBA’s MVP, didn’t sound like he would be clamoring for James to come to Houston.

”I don’t think there is a piece that we need to bring in or take away,” Harden said. ”We’re great with what we have.”

Miami is the place where James left Cleveland for once before, and it’s clear that he still enjoys South Florida. And the rumors about him and the Lakers have swirled for some time, though Lakers President Magic Johnson – perhaps offering a word of caution – said the rebuild of his team will take two summers.

”We don’t know what people are going to decide to do and we can’t control that,” Johnson said. ”So if guys decide not to come here, it’s not a failure. We turn to next summer. Next summer, if nobody comes and I’m still sitting here like this Jimmy Garoppolo Jersey Limited , then it’s a failure.”

James isn’t looking to fail. But until he decides where he can win, everyone waits.

Free agent cornerback Vontae Davis has met with the San Francisco 49ers and Oakland Raiders about upgrading their secondaries.

A person familiar with Davis’ plans says he met with the Raiders on Wednesday after meeting with 49ers the previous day. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because the meetings were not made public. Davis has also reportedly met with Cleveland and Buffalo

Davis is a two-time Pro Bowler who is on the open market after being released by Indianapolis last November. Because he was cut, Davis can sign with a team immediately instead of waiting for the start of the new league year next month.

Davis lost his starting job midway through last season and then did not travel with the team for a game in Houston for ”non-injury” reasons. Davis was then cut a few days later.

Davis said before the release that he had been hampered all season by a torn groin suffered in the third preseason game but the Colts said they were unaware of lingering problems from the injury.

Opposing quarterbacks had a 79.5 passer rating when targeting Davis in 2015-16, according to SportRadar. But he struggled last season, allowing a 105.7 rating.

Davis spent his first three seasons with Miami after being a first-round pick in 2009. He was traded to the Colts before the 2012 season and was voted to the Pro Bowl in 2014 and `15.

Davis has 22 career interceptions with 97 passes defensed and two sacks.

The Raiders and 49ers are both in need of upgrades at cornerback. San Francisco could lose starter Dontae Johnson in free agency next month after having traded Rashard Robinson during the season. The only cornerbacks under contract who played more than a handful of snaps last season are 2017 third-round pick Ahkello Witherspoon and slot cornerback K’Waun Williams.

Oakland released starter David Amerson earlier this month and could also cut starter Sean Smith in order to create more salary cap room. Slot cornerback TJ Carrie is eligible to be a free agent, leaving last year’s first-round pick Gareon Conley as the only projected starter currently under contract. C0nley played just two games as a rookie because of injuries.
