Here’s some news that is huge if it pans out. Chris Paul, one of LeBron James’ close friends and banana boat buddy, is reportedly telling people James wants to play in Los Angeles next year.

According to ESPN’s Stephen A. Smith on his radio show Monday, “Chris Paul is telling folks LeBron ain’t trying to come to Houston, he wants to be in L.A.”

But which team in Los Angeles does LeBron want to play for? Smith didn’t specify Lakers or Clippers. (The Lakers are currently the heavy favorites.)

He did also mention the fact that, as previously reported, James is not a fan of the city of Houston.

“I heard this from his own lips when we were in Houston this season,” the Akron Beacon Journal’s Marla Ridenour told ESPN Radio. “He does not like Houston as a city. So, that would require him moving to a place that he’s not crazy about.”

Smith also stated that, despite rumors, people in Los Angeles aren’t sure Paul George is going to come there, and George may stay in Oklahoma City thanks to his solid relationship with Russell Westbrook. (He can also make more money staying there.)

He also said he heard that LeBron going to Los Angeles is not dependent on Paul George also going there.
