NBA free agency day has arrived, with players and teams allowed to meet with each other to discuss contracts beginning at 6 p.m. E.T.

LeBron James and the Los Angeles Lakers are expected to be major players in free agency, having freed up enough cap space for another max player.

Reports have suggested that LeBron will be a major part of the Lakers' pitch to free agent forward Kawhi Leonard, who's expected to have interest in Los Angeles. LeBron has reportedly been in contact with Leonard and could be a part of the recruitment meeting.

LeBron's latest like on Instagram seems to suggest that's true.

The Lakers' star forward liked an Instagram photo of a Kawhi Lakers mural that's being painted in Los Angeles.

That is a pretty cool mural.

Leonard, who's coming off an NBA Finals win with the Toronto Raptors, is expected to draw interest from a bunch of teams, but he's likely only going to consider a couple. The Lakers, Clippers, Knicks and Raptors are believed to be the four favorites.

Toronto will reportedly get the last pitch meeting for Kawhi, though the Lakers - and LeBron - are likely to make a big impression.

NBA free agency is set to begin at 6 p.m. E.T.
