Magic Johnson, the Los Angels Lakers President of Basketball Operations, was spotted during Sunday night’s Cavs-Lakers game meeting with LeBron’s agent Rich Paul and business manager Maverick Carter.
Magic waited until the Lakers were up big before making his way over to talk with LeBron’s people. What a move by Magic, he’s clearly planting the seed that the Lakers want him.

Just in case those billboards aren’t doing the trick. You have to love the fact that Magic doesn’t care about tampering or the appearance of tampering.
Will Los Angeles be able to pry LeBron away, even if the Cavs can offer him the most amount of money in free agency?
The Cavs will be able to offer LeBron James a projected max contract of 5 years, $205M this summer; all other teams can offer 4 years, $152M. Cavs at Lakers 9pm tonight on @espn pic.twitter.com/C0X1h1nOMm
