According to The Ringer’s Kevin O’Connor, Cleveland Cavaliers superstar LeBron James will only consider four teams this summer when he becomes a free agent. O’Connor suggests those teams are the Cavaliers, Houston Rockets, Los Angeles Lakers, and the Philadelphia 76ers.
There have already been billboards in Philadelphia and Los Angeles attempting to get “The King” to sign with their respective teams. James also recently denied during the All-Star game break that he was looking at private schools in the Philadelphia, Pa. area.
James is hoping to sign a max contract with his new or old team. However, there are only a few teams that could potentially offer him that. Like the Rockets did by acquiring Chris Paul in a blockbuster deal last summer, they would have to get creative in getting rid of enough cap space to make such a deal work.
The 76ers and Lakers already have enough space to make it work. And the Cavaliers are the team that could offer him the most money, but they have the incentive of being close to his hometown.
The 2018-19 season will be James’ 16th in the league. He’ll also be 34-years-old this Dec., and has spent 11-years with the Cavaliers. He spent four seasons with the Miami Heat, before returning to the Cavaliers.
Despite the tread on his tires, James is still considered the best — or the second-best player in the association — depending on who you ask. He is expected to decline the 2018-19 option of $35.607 million to become a free agent.
