LeBron James reportedly never reached out to Kevin Durant

CLEVELAND– There is reportedly no truth to the rumor that LeBron James reached out to Kevin Durant about joining forces in Los Angeles.

Joe Vardon of was the first to report the news, refuting a claim made by Stephen A. Smith of ESPN:

According to Vardon’s sources, James joining the Lakers in free agency also won’t be decided one way or the other by whether or not L.A. completes a trade with San Antonio for Kawhi Leonard.

So basically, there continues to be no such thing as a sure thing when it comes to where exactly James’ mind currently is. James, who has been largely silent on social media, has been busy on vacation with his family. He has until 11:59 Friday night to inform the Cavs whether or not he intends to exercise the player option in his contract.
