Major development in LeBron James' NBA future

But imagine how much hate he'll get if he teams up with LeBron James next season. The Rockets pushed the two-time defending champion Golden State Warriors to seven games in the Western Conference finals last month.

CLEVELAND LeBron James made the first move.

The 76ers stand as a third and seemingly distant runner-up for James. Philadelphia's young and upcoming stars are also an intriguing choice.

James has a home in Los Angeles, as do his chief business associates, and the allure of playing for a historic franchise like the Lakers appeals to him.
A lot of people don't believe this; a lot of people think we had this already set up. The Cavaliers could go over the salary cap to re-sign James because they own his "Bird rights", named for Celtics legend Larry Bird, but any other team he signs with would have to create enough space to sign him under the cap.

In doing so, that dramatically decreases the chances that the Houston Rockets would be able to orchestrate the maneuvers necessary to sign both James and Chris Paul to play alongside James Harden in Houston. It will be tough for Cleveland to make any significant changes to its roster until it gets an answer from him.

James, 33, is coming off one of his finest campaigns as a pro in his 15th season.

Indeed, Argentinian journalist Fernando Niembro has even accused the captain of taking over squad selection duties from Sampaoli. We need to know how to play with him and be able to work with him on the pitch, some of them can do it quickly and others not.

That trade didn't exactly work out, due in part to Thomas' prolonged recovery from injury, and he wound up being sent to Los Angeles, to the same team that is favored by many to land James.

Although the 14-time All-Star is now a "free" agent, his decision to not pick up his player option theoretically limits his number of potential landing spots. Between a potential Paul George signing or Kawhi Leonard trade, the Lakers could quickly pile up stars in sunny California.

There is a healthy amount of skepticism around the National Basketball Association that the Spurs will be willing to trade Leonard to Los Angeles, though.

The Lakers and Sixers have to be the most excited by James's decision. Team personnel were unable to reach him that summer to consult him on what he wanted.

However, news agency Cleveland.com claim James' agent Rich Paul notified the Cavs of his client's decision on Friday.
