Derek Carr recruits LeBron James to Lakers on Twitter
Oakland Raiders quarterback Derek Carr certainly thinks today’s trades have opened the door for LeBron James to join the Los Angeles Lakers, and he’s ready to play his part in a recruitment process.
Carr tweeted to James in the midst of the NBA trade deadline frenzy, suggesting that he move to Los Angeles this summer and sting the Cleveland Cavaliers once more.

Carr, like the rest of us, noted that the big Lakers-Cavaliers trade on Thursday opens up a ton of cap space for Los Angeles this summer. The presumption is they’ll at least launch a pursuit of James, whose contract is expiring. Even as the Cavaliers go all-out to show James that they’re building things for the future, his own decision is very much in doubt.
