Cavs GM Says LeBron Is Committed To The Cavs ‘For Years To Come’
Despite the longstanding rumors of LeBron James possibly bolting from the Cleveland Cavaliers following the 2017-2018 season, Cleveland’s front office remains optimistic that the superstar will be there until he retires.
“LeBron remains deeply committed to this organization, he remains deeply committed to this team, and deeply committed to this city,” newly hired Cavs general manager Koby Altman told the press Wednesday. “It means a lot for him to be here and compete for championships for years to come.
After the team failed to put the right talent around LeBron the first go-around, he bolted in 2010 and headed to Miami, playing in four straight NBA Finals and winning two of them. James eventually returned to Cleveland in 2014 to team up with Kyrie Irving. He then gave the okay on a trade that sent Andrew Wiggins to Minnesota for Kevin Love, and two years later he’d win his third NBA title.
“The goal is singular,” Altman said. “It’s focused on trying to win championships, so we’re committed to him. From an organizational standpoint, that’s our goal.”
