Rumors Float About LeBron James’ Intentions to Wear New Colors
The 33-year-old James is having another MVP-caliber season, as he is averaging 27.0 points, 9.0 assists and 8.4 rebounds per game. If James doesn’t re-sign with the Cavs, the Lakers, Rockets and Sixers have all emerged as rumored options.
USA Today’s Sam Amick reported in December that some “In Rockets circles” believe Houston has a legitimate chance of signing James. Sixers color commentator Alaa Abdelnaby said James was in Philadelphia during the All-Star break to look at private schools for his children, but LeBron denied that, per Tom Withers of the Associated Press.
In Philly, James would join a talented, young core that includes Joel Embiid and Ben Simmons. James undoubtedly will be the crown jewel of free agency if he opts out as expected.
