James Has Two Destinations

Cavaliers, Lakers Believed to be Front Runners in LeBron Sweepstakes

It appears that LeBron James is zeroed in on two teams as free agency is set to begin in just over a week.

While the Houston Rockets and Philadelphia 76ers are still on the rumoured list, it appears as though the hometown Cleveland Cavaliers and the Los Angeles Lakers have an early edge in the race. According to reports, leading up to free agency, James is looking to recruit star players to come join him in Cleveland, attempting to gage the interest prior to sitting down and making his own decision.

“All the arrows point to him bolting,” said Ryen Russillo. “But I know for a fact LeBron is trying to figure out if other stars around the league want to come play with him in Cleveland first. I know for a fact that LeBron is still trying to find a way to make it happen in Cleveland. I just don’t know if anybody wants to go there with him.”

In an effort to help appease the King, the Cavs held onto their No. 8 pick, selecting Collin Sexton, a much needed option at the point.

Getting back to the point of James’ ideal destinations, Brian Windhorst believes that it very well may be down to only two teams.

 

“I don’t think Houston is in the running,” he said. “I don’t think his family feels comfortable going to Houston. I think where his family is going to be qualifies the teams. You have to get by his wife, Savannah. And his sons to say ‘yes.’ I think L.A. and Cleveland pass that and that’s why their in the driver’s seat right now.”

 

If James does return to Cleveland, the opt-in is believed to not be in play.
