Report: Nuggets could pitch LeBron James on idea of one-year deal

LeBron James

The Denver Nuggets are trying to put themselves in a position to contend in the Western Conference next season, and they are aiming as high as possible in free agency in order to accomplish that goal.

Now that they have signed Nikola Jokic and Will Barton to extensions, the Nuggets are reportedly planning to “aggressively pursue” a meeting with LeBron. Chris Mannix of Sports Illustrated says they could try to sell James on the idea of giving them a shot for one season.

While that’s awfully ambitious of Denver’s front office, the odds of it happening are about as slim as it gets. Jamal Murray, Jokic and Barton give the Nuggets a solid core of young players, but it would make no sense for LeBron to sign with them over a team like the Los Angeles Lakers.

There have been indications that LeBron is going to make a decision sooner rather than later, and no one expects a surprise team like the Nuggets to be a factor.
