Trust the Process. The Process is just one key player away from being a dominant team for years to come in the Eastern Conference.
After years of suffering in the Sam Hinkie era, the Philadelphia 76ers are going to be big players this summer. Besides having expressed interest in Kawi Leonard and Paul George, the 76ers are expected to be big players in the pursuit of LeBron James.
It is believed if James did leave Cleveland for the second-time — many NBA insiders believe it is already a done deal — he would sign with the 76ers. James is expected to decline his player option for next season to become a free agent.
The news comes hours before the Cavaliers are expected to play against the Boston Celtics in the Eastern Conference Finals. James, who has had a bad relationship with Cavaliers owner Dan Gilbert dating back to his first tenure with the team, will reportedly leave because of Gilbert is viewed as a Donald Trump support.
James, who is a Democrat, voted for Hillary Clinton during the 2016 Presidential election. Gilbert, in fact, gave money to both candidates, according to public records, but James views Gilbert as a Republican.
As we previously posted, according to The Ringer’s Kevin O’Connor, James will only consider four teams in free agency. Besides the Cavaliers, he will consider the 76ers, Los Angeles Lakers (where he owns a house), and the Houston Rockets.
