LeBron won’t meet with Cavaliers in person when free agency opens

01 July, 2018, 13:45 | Author: Elena Meyer
  • LeBron James averaged 27.5 points 9.1 assists and 8.7 rebounds this past season. More

It is possible a combination of Harden, James and Paul could win a title, but the chances of it happening seem very slim.

The New York Times also reported that Dallas are interested in the New Orleans Pelicans' DeMarcus Cousins and Houston restricted free agent Clint Capela. While signing with Los Angeles would not assure such a trip once again, they're absolutely in a better place this offseason than they were a year ago.

LeBron James flew back to Los Angeles from a family vacation in the Caribbean.

Hours before National Basketball Association free agency opened with the three-time champion as its most coveted prize, James returned to Southern California, where he has two homes and a film production company.

"I have no idea at this point", James said after the NBA Finals when asked if he's played his last game for the Cavaliers after getting swept by the Golden Warriors.

The house has been barricaded and the police were questioning the neighbours. The victims included four men and seven women, including teenagers.

James had until Friday at 11:59 p.m. ET to opt out of the final year of his existing deal with the Cavaliers. Coming off one of the best seasons of his career, James is one of the most sought-after free agents in the league's history.

The super-sleuths at Reddit's r/NBA subreddit scoured flight logs to find a private plane that went from Cleveland to Miami to Antigua this week, and on Saturday morning was headed to Los Angeles. However, James could still re-sign with Cleveland, although the strong current from national media is that he appears ready to move. ESPN's Ramona Shelburne reported this week that James would not be seeking elaborate pitch meetings during the free-agency process.

With some savvy moves, the Lakers are poised to potentially add two superstars - James and Paul George and maybe Kawhi Leonard - to a team featuring up-and-coming talents like Kyle Kuzma, Brandon Ingram and Lonzo Ball.

But the fans at r/NBA will likely be keeping an eye on the plane that (likely) brought LeBron James to Los Angeles to see if there are any stops in Houston, Philadelphia, or Cleveland. It is a decision that the 33-year-old didn't have to make until Friday's midnight deadline.

Love, who averaged 17.3 points and 9.3 rebounds in an All-Star campaign last season, could be the focal point on offense for a team that as of now feels it has no real incentive to start a rebuild right away.
