While LeBron James has been busy vacationing in the Caribbean, his camp has been even busier, denying rumors and reports left and right surrounding his client.
ESPN’s Brian Windhorst noted just how quickly they have reacted to every report put out, within only hours of it going viral.
As transcribed by RealGM:
“The LeBron operation, I don’t know how else to put it, but they have basically thrown cold water and vehemently denied everything that has been out there the last couple of days,” said Brian Windhorst. “They have denied that he is communicating with Kawhi Leonard. They have denied he is communicating with Kevin Durant about joining up in Los Angeles. They have denied there is a three-way conversation going on between Paul George, Kawhi and LeBron. They have denied that Kawhi being traded to the Lakers would clinch LeBron going to the Lakers.
“They have pretty much denied that any of that is happening.”
Every national report has come with a counter-report coming from Cleveland, which only adds to the mayhem this offseason has been.
LeBron-watch, for lack of a better term, has been on full tilt as the June 29 deadline to opt in or out of his contract approaches.
James is surely keeping a close eye on his free agency situation, but his camp wants absolute privacy on any potential conversations that could give an indication of where he’s leaning to play.
The hours keep on ticking and opting out surely aids the Los Angeles Lakers, while still not taking the Cleveland Cavaliers out of the picture completely.
