A photo of Mark Cuban in Cleveland made the rounds on Twitter Thursday, prompting speculation that the Dallas Mavericks owner was in town for a meeting with LeBron James’ agent, Rich Paul.
Cuban confirmed that he was in Cleveland, but he denied being there for a meeting about LeBron.
“I was there for a ‘Shark Tank’ commitment,” Cuban said in reference to his TV show via ESPN.
James’ agent reportedly met with multiple teams about potentially making a pitch to the MVP. The Mavs, Suns, Rockets and Cavs were said to be the teams who presented to Paul. When you all that up, it seems a little too convenient for Cuban to be in Cleveland, regardless of his explanation.
