Guessing game: Cavs enter National Basketball Association draft unsure of LeBron's plans

Shaquille O’Neal played for multiple different teams in the last years of his NBA career

The thing is James doesn't necessarily have to opt out of his deal, as he has a player option for next season with the Cavaliers that would pay him $35.6 million.

Cavs GM Koby Altman made that much clear on Thursday night, as spoke of the continued talks he's had with the megastar's management team since Cleveland's season ended in the NBA Finals two weeks ago.

"LeBron has more than earned the right to approach his contracts the way he does", Altman said.

Cleveland Cavaliers forward LeBron James (23) reacts during the third quarter against the Golden State Warriors in game four of the 2018 NBA Finals at Quicken Loans Arena.

And no other major player appears to have come close to shifting sales in recent years, as TickPick also analyzed year-to-year increases or drop-offs for teams that added or lost the following players: Kevin Durant, Kyrie Irving, Dwyane Wade and Gordon Hayward.

Based on his wardrobe for the draft, Sexton may have had an inkling Cleveland was going to take him. But that's just what I've had to do. Even a minor-league baseball team, for goodness' sake, has given its all to try to recruit King James.

While averaging 19.2 points and 3.6 assists in his only season down in Tuscaloosa, Sexton ranked 1st in the SEC in Transition scoring (5.1 ppg), second in the conference in both pick and roll scoring (5.5 ppg) and isolation scoring (2.5 ppg), per NBA.com.

I've always said that.

France look to continue winning run against Denmark
France and Denmark will face off this week, and the victor of this game will walk off the field owning the top spot in Group C. France now sits in first with 6 points with two wins, while Denmark is in second with 4 points due to one win and one draw.


Heading into the playoffs, Love - who was offered to the Indiana Pacers in a trade for Paul George last June - acknowledged that it could be his last go-round with the team that traded its No. 1 pick, Andrew Wiggins, to the Minnesota Timberwolves for him in 2014, ushering in the most successful era in Cavs history.

Sexton was the first Alabama freshman in the modern era to record three straight games of more than 20 points in each of his first three contests.

-The forecasts seemingly all project Deandre Ayton to develop into an National Basketball Association star, but the 7-foot-1 center who could go No. 1 overall in Thursday's draft said he defines National Basketball Association success as not having his rookie contract be his last.

The Cavs tried to trade up to acquire the Memphis Grizzlies' No. 4 pick on Thursday, a team source told ESPN, to no avail. The win ultimately propelled Alabama to its first NCAA Tournament berth since 2012.

"I still want to be in championship mode", he said.

"At StubHub, we have seen Cavs ticket demand steadily increase each season since LeBron returned, which is a real testament to his star power", said StubHub spokesperson Cameron Papp.

With or without James, the Cavs need a young, talented point guard.
