LeBron might be playing for a new NBA team next season. Most people believe that team will be the Lakers. However, it's starting to look like that team could be the Sixers.

While LeBron's free agency has been pegged by most as a two-team race between Los Angeles and Cleveland, Philadelphia is attempting to enter the mix. The Sixers could end up being successful, too.

Philadelphia has acquired a meeting with LeBron's representatives in Los Angeles today.

ESPN NBA insider Adrian Wojnarowski first reported the news.

"James isn't expected to attend the meeting, which is the first significant chance for the 76ers to make a free-agent pitch to James, league sources said. Ownership and possibly interim president of basketball operations/coach Brett Brown are expected to lead the meeting with James' representatives, sources said," he writes.

New details of this meeting are starting to emerge, too.

Sixers insider Jon Johnson says the meeting was not originally planned.

What does this mean? Is LeBron now seriously considering the Sixers after not planning on it?

We'll see. Philadelphia is also reportedly continuing to attempt to make a trade for Kawhi Leonard. If the Sixers can land both Kawhi and LeBron, watch out.
