Default Cleveland Cavaliers may target LeBron James in 2014 free agency, according to report

Quote:
[...] With the summer of 2014 quickly approaching, the length of a contract the Cavs will absorb is now limited.
Executives and agents around the league are convinced the Cavaliers won’t do anything to jeopardize their ability to sign a free agent to a max contract during the summer of 2014, when LeBron James can again become a free agent. As fans in Northeast Ohio continue to howl and remain divided about the possibility of his return, more and more people around the league believe there is a strong possibility James will indeed return to Cleveland after next season.
The Cavs are well aware of this, too, and won’t take on a bad contract if it compromises their cap space in two years.
Oh, i hope this is true :) it would be great to see LeBron come back :) could you imagine LeBron and Kyrie ?

Do you really think Gilbert will swallow his pride and go for him?

For a team who can't give tickets away I say yes.

After that city burned his jerseys and the owner talked mad **** about him, I think Lebron would give them a big smile and say NO THANKS!! No way he goes back to Cleveland. Doesnt matter if thats where he is from.

Dan Gilbert apologized for his rapid comments against Lebron and he admitted to regretting his quick instinctive reaction. I don't blame Gilbert for his comments or Lebron for leaving. However as an anti-cleveland fan due to the fact that most Cavs fans are Browns fans and I had to spend a majority of my life in the area, I think that Lebron coming back would help restore his image/reputation which no matter what will always be somewhat damaged.

I could see it happening but the Cavs are going to have to get another piece besides Irving to pair with him. Cleveland has the pieces to make a big deal though with Thompson, Waiters, and tons of draft picks.

id rather go after Kevin Durant with a huge deal . He is 3 or 4 years younger and could offer him a longer deal IMO.

Dalton is not the problem. Sometimes I think the only reason people gripe about him is because they have nothing better to do or simply like to read the word of their own writing, similar to when people complaining just to hear the sound of their own voice.
