Philadelphia 76ers v Toronto Raptors - Game Seven

Lebron James has missed the playoffs this year for the first time since the beginning of his career. He is doing everything possible that will not happen again.

According to Brian Windhorst, LeBron James has already started reaching out to the big name free agents that will hit the market this summer. Brian Windhorst went on Pardon The Interruption and said that James is recruiting a few stars to play alongside him next season.

"From what I understand he's already begun the recruiting process...I have heard he's had contact with Kawhi Leonard," Windhorst said. "I have heard he's had contact with Jimmy Butler...LeBron is tamper-in-chief right now."

The pressure to get a big name free agent is on for the Lakers. The biggest names set to hit the market are Kevin Durant, Kyrie Irving, Jimmy Butler, Kawhi Leonard, Klay Thompson, to name a few.
