The King really could be heading to Los Angeles.

LeBron James texted Kevin Durant about making the jump to L.A., Stephen A. Smith reported on First Take Thursday morning.

While Smith didn't say which team in Los Angeles James would be heading to, it can safely be assumed he means to join the Lakers.

Apparently James wants Durant to come to Los Angeles with him, but it would not make sense for Durant to do so. As Smith noted, Durant is the two-time reigning NBA Finals MVP after helping Golden State win back-to-back titles.

The fact that James is reaching out to other players about joining him in L.A. does indicate he will be leaving the Cavaliers and has his sights set on the West Coast.
