REPORT: League Execs Believe 76ers Will Try To Recruit LeBron James In Free Agency


Since the offseason, rumors have been swirling that LeBron James would be bolting from the Cleveland Cavaliers once again to sign with theLakers and finish off his career in Los Angeles.

With Lonzo Ball not really panning out like many had hoped in the early part of his rookie campaign, a new team has emerged as a possible suitor, and there’s a strong indication they will go full throttle to try and sign him.

Executives around the NBA believe the Philadelphia 76ers will attempt to sign LeBron James in free agency next summer. Doing so would give James the opportunity to sign with a talented squad, all while staying in the Eastern Conference, where he has dominated for the past seven years.

If LeBron gives any indication he wants to go to Philly, the team could easily create enough salary cap space to sign him to a max contract starting at $34 million. James and Ben Simmons already share an agent in Rich Paul.

“The organization has done a great job believing in Brett Brown’s system, believing in what he wanted to do and they gave him time,” James said before the Cavaliers beat the Sixers 113-91 on Monday.
