Report: LeBron James could be leaning towards a return to Cleveland

Although Los Angeles is the current favorite to land LeBron, Cleveland isn't out of the discussion just yet.

But the Cavaliers don't have to wait until that date to hold talks with LeBron and general manager Koby Altman has revealed that they've held "good dialogue" with his representatives.

"We continue to have good dialogue with his management team".

In Cleveland, Sexton could possibly team up with four-time MVP LeBron James, assuming the superstar elects to re-sign with the Cavaliers this offseason.

"One of the things that LeBron James is incredibly grateful for - he religiously brings up - is the sacrifices that his family and loved ones have made for him", Smith said, before expounding on the close relationships in James' life. During his first three years in Cleveland, the big man was the team's third scoring option on offense and had plenty of open shots with guys like James and Irving being able to take plenty of the defense's attention away from him. Cleveland can outbid any other suitor by offering him a five-year, max contract worth approximately $205 million.

Although he had his most efficient season as a Cavalier during his 59 regular season games, the 29-year-old struggled throughout much of the postseason, at least for his standards. "I think when you look at him two years ago, he wasn't on the circuit as being one of the top players in the country but he continued to work and dedicate himself to the game of basketball".

If George indeed decides to pass up the Lakers when they have the ability create two max slots, that would definitely make LeBron's next move more complicated.

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

It's just the 39th pick in the draft, but acquiring the selection could help the Lakers should their plan to collect free-agents come to fruition. However, he prefers to stay in OH with the Cavs, the insider claims.

That year, the Cavs selected Andrew Wiggins with the No. 1 pick. Who can Cleveland even get for the draft pick? Then again, ahead of Thursday night's draft, it is #SmokeScreenSZN.

Sexton's most memorable moment came during the second round of the SEC Tournament against Texas A&M when he sprinted the length of the court before hitting a game-winning layup at the buzzer to give Alabama a 71-70 victory and keep the Crimson Tide's postseason hopes alive.
