LeBron James Would Entertain Warriors In Free Agency

Published

The rich could get a heck of a lot richer.

According to a report from ESPN, Cleveland Cavalier superstar LeBron James would entertain a free agent meeting with the Golden State Warriors should the Warriors create a max salary slot this offseason.

James, who respects the Warrriors’ winning culture, would listen if the team explored ways to clear the necessary cap space to sign him.

James is expected to decline his $35.6 million player option with the Cavs and become an unrestricted free agent.

One possible scenario is a sign-and-trade which could be the most realistic way that the Warriors could acquire James. In that scenario, the Warriors could send Andre Iguodala and Klay Thompson to Cleveland in return for James, according to ESPN’s Kevin Pelton.

In order for that to work, Golden State wold need Kevin Durant to decline his player option and take less than his current $25M annual salary.

“I feel like I have a purpose, for the greater good,” Love said, according to The Athletic’s Joe Vardon. “For the first 10 years, for better or worse, that’s what I felt like for basketball. Learning what I needed to learn. Now I’m just starting to work on myself off the court. That’s going to lead to helping people and paying it forward. I think it is good to be busier when you’re working, putting the same time into things that are super valuable.”

Cleveland Cavaliers guard JR Smith is looking to get traded from the team, as he is upset with his playing time this season.

“Yeah,” Smith, 33, said when asked about requesting a trade, according to ESPN.

“They know. They don’t want me here, so they obviously know.”

Smith is earning $14.7 million this season, and is in his 15th year in the league, and at age 33, he may not be an attractive trade piece for even contending teams looking for veteran depth down the stretch.

Cleveland has been gauging the market for Kyle Korver, looking to trade him as soon as possible.

“That rhythm wasn’t there tonight,” Love said, according to The Athletic’s Joe Vardon. “You could tell that game action wasn’t there for me tonight. Thought I got a lot of really, really good looks on the offensive end. On the defensive end, just our switches and closing out, just my attention to detail wasn’t there.

“I told Ty after the game, I said that’s on me and I apologize. We all have to be better and I think we know it.”
