LeBron James Says There's Nothing He's Chasing in the League

Brandon Ingram Le Bron James Lakers

However, talks between the Pelicans and Lakers are "dormant" and there's no expectation that the teams will talk on Thursday, according to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski.

James chose Kevin Durant with the No. 1 overall pick, as he did previous year in the All-Star draft, to be one of his starters.

Once Antetokounmpo started that round with Milwaukee teammate Khris Middleton, it was a relative no-brainer for James to go with Davis. Then with his first pick amongst the reserve pool, James opted for Davis. Denver coach Michael Malone will make his All-Star debut, coaching Team LeBron.

Simmons and Westbrook were then traded, before LeBron picked his close friend Dwyane Wade in the third and final round, while Antetokounmpo selected Dirk Nowitzki.

In-form Toronto star Kawhi Leonard was picked 3rd by James before he selected reigning Most Valuable Player James Harden with his 4th pick.

Antetokounmpo keyed in on adding more size between his selections of five-time All-Star Blake Griffin of the Detroit Pistons and Orlando Magic center Nikola Vucevic, another first-time All-Star. While James added some suspense at first, he ended up taking his long-time peer and former teammate in Wade, leaving Giannis with Nowitzki. But the Pelicans kept Davis as the trade deadline passed, so for now, their time as teammates will be limited to All-Star weekend and James pounced at the chance to grab him with the second pick of the reserve round.

U.S. sanctions on Venezuela's state oil company could also lift prices, though they have yet to trigger any sharp increase. Meanwhile, imports are set to drop further as the USA slapped sanctions on Venezuelan state oil company PDVSA.

Antetokounmpo was pretty happy with his slick move: "I'm playing mind games", he jokingly said.

With the National Basketball Association trade deadline looming, Lakers star LeBron James seems to be content with whatever happens.

"I know Ben Simmons is your guy so I'll do it", Antetokounmpo said. "I'm going with my buddy, Dwyane Wade".

Prior to the draft, Antetokounmpo said that he planned on pairing Westbrook and Embiid together on his roster to help simmer their on-court rivalry, but he wasn't done there. He then proceeded to add some global flavor between his picks of Denver Nuggets big man Nikola Jokic and Philadelphia 76ers maestro Ben Simmons, all first-time All-Stars as well.

Another intriguing layer came when Klay Thompson was drafted to Team LeBron.
