Ohm Youngmisuk has covered the Giants, Jets and the National Football League since 2006.
For the first time since signing with the Lakers as a free agent, James met with Los Angeles coach Luke Walton while attending a Summer League game in Las Vegas on Sunday. In the Lakers' semifinal win over Cleveland, Hart had 37 points, bringing his average to 24.2 - the best in the league. The Lakers are taking on the Detroit Pistons in the Summer League's quarterfinals round.
Hart didn't know he had topped his fellow 2017 draftee in Summer League scoring until the subject came up during his post-game media availability. The Lakers' president of basketball operations gushed about Hart last week and said that the Villanova product could be forcing his way into the conversation for a starting spot this fall.More news: Prime Day has started with outages on Amazon.com

Here are a few other photos showing James at the game. "My ability to shoot off the dribble". There were moments that made you happy, moments that made you question why you are even watching, and moments that made you just stand up and say "What just happened?!"
Josh Hart added 18 points, four assists, two rebounds and two steals and Xavier Rathan-Mayes chipped in 11 points.
According to the Lakers, a key tenant of their free agency pitch to James attacked this very problem. "I thought he had a great minicamp with us before he went out there".
