LeBron prefers staying with Cleveland

The Cavaliers hold the eighth overall selection in Thursday's National Basketball Association draft. "Keep in mind that every story is coming nearly directly from his camp, do not be surprised when new LeBron news comes out, and Kawhi news follows, it is all a part of the plan in controlling the narrative".

Before (and after) Isaiah Thomas, Kevin Love was the Cleveland Cavaliers primary scapegoat, with him always taking the blame whenever the team fell short of their Championship goals or went through bad stretches. Their pick is likely locked on Arizona center Deandre Ayton. Kawhi Leonard's reported trade request has re-energized the offseason free agency speculation surrounding LeBron James and Paul George to the Lakers, and these rumors are just the tip of the iceberg for what should be one wild and interesting offseason.

Still, the possibility is there should the right opportunity present itself.

The Cavs' prized No. 8 overall pick, one they protected at all costs throughout the course of the regular season - becoming the lone important asset remaining from the Kyrie Irving trade after Isaiah Thomas and Jae Crowder were traded away. "So, they have to continue to make moves to make the roster younger and better". While his family will be a major factor for what he does on a personal level, James wants his primary motivating factor on a professional level to be the pursuit of more rings. Love, 29, has two years and almost $50 million left on his contract. He can hit free agency this summer if he declines the player option on his contract with the Cavaliers.

"I just think you have to trade for a point guard who can make things easier for everybody on the court, including LeBron", Begley said during an appearance on "The Bull and Fox Show" on 92.3 The Fan.

Cleveland also has the option of drafting a player and trading him after 30 days, like it did with Andrew Wiggins in 2014 to acquire Kevin Love.

How many times have you heard that in reference to the Cavs in the last four years?

The Portland Trail Blazers are a huge question mark entering this upcoming season, as nobody knows their true intentions, whether they would like to break out their explosive backcourt or give it another shot at the Lillard-McCollum experiment. "Always wanted to win here".

These teams, in fact, had been rumored as to have offered LeBron juicy proposals to lure James come and be part of their respective organizations.
