Rumor: LeBron James could try to bring Chris Paul with him to a team in free agency
Everyone wants to know what LeBron James will do next now.
After getting swept by the Golden State Warriors in the NBA Finals, many believe LeBron will decide to leave the Cavs. But no one is sure where he’ll go yet.
The idea is that LeBron can end up somewhere with a super team that could challenge the Warriors. One way that may be possible is if Chris Paul is involved. And reportedly, that may be the case.
My best forecast at this juncture? Fixate on Chris Paul. If Paul stays with the Rockets, Houston becomes a dangerous player, no matter how complicated it would be for the 65-win Rockets and their general manager, Daryl Morey, to orchestrate the requisite salary-cap gymnastics to bring James in. But don’t discount the idea that James could try to bring Paul with him to a team that can afford two superstars, such as the Lakers, because he and Paul really are that close.
The interesting part of this idea is LeBron and CP3 potentially going somewhere besides Houston to a team like the Los Angeles Lakers. That’s a variable that not many have talked about just yet.
This just goes to show how many things that could happen regarding LeBron’s decision. It will be interesting to see what he ends up deciding to do.
