Though James has the ability to listen to offers from all suitors and choose his next team, the Miami Heat are still the strong favorites to retain him. I just can’t see him leaving Miami, though he will definitely want assurances from Pat Riley that the team will give him a better supporting cast next season than they had last season.
Still, James has earned the right to hear the pitches from other teams. One report says the Clippers in a sign and trade could be an intriguing possibility for James.
The most intriguing move on the mind of James and his camp, sources told Yahoo Sports, would be a sign-and-trade scenario with the Los Angeles Clippers in which James could play with close friend Chris Paul and under president-coach Doc Rivers.
Despite acknowledging the potential intrigue behind a move to the Clippers, Woj says the Heat are the “primary consideration” for James.
Like I said, I can’t see James leaving the Heat, but sometimes it’s fun to visit fantasyland and ponder the possibilities. LeBron to the Clippers would be a lot of fun, and having Chris Paul and Blake Griffin on his team certainly would be better than what he has now with Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh.
