76ers Rumors: Philadelphia A Real Possibility For LeBron James Next Summer?

Leah Klafczynski  Zuma Press  Icon Sportswire

The source says LeBron was expecting an "aggressive offseason" but was dismayed when owner Dan Gilbert chose to part ways with GM David Griffin just days before the draft. To go play in L.A. means James' path to the Finals runs through the Golden State Warriors start at least a round earlier than anticipated. Thus far, the Cavs offseason signings have included Jeff Green, Jose Calderon, Kyle Korver and Cedi Osman, but they missed out on guys like Paul George and Jimmy Butler, which reportedly hasn't sat well with LeBron James. Conference rival Boston Celtics won big in the draft, rid themselves of Avery Bradley's contract, and brought in superstar forward Gordon Hayward. This decision left the Cavs without two prominent front-office executives at a pivotal time. The Cavs also are still on the prowl for a new general manager, which leaves the future of the team lingering in doubt.

Regardless of the inaction, though, Irving said with a sly, confident grin that the team might not be done this offseason. Butler was later traded to the Minnesota Timberwolves. If a playoff team emerges around Simmons, Fultz and Joel Embiid, Philadelphia will be looked at as a future contender in the East without James.With him, the Sixers could be a favorite.Sixers dealing Okafor?Adding to the intrigue: The relationship, through Klutch Sports, between James and Simmons.

LeBron James, the NBA's most powerful player and biggest star who brought the Cleveland Cavaliers their first National Basketball Association championship, is concerned about the Cavaliers' offseason, a person close to the situation told USA TODAY Sports.

According to Spotrac, the 76ers project to have over $61 million in cap space next summer, giving them enough room to sign LeBron and another star player to a max contract while not having to part with any of their young core. Crawford is a three-time "Sixth Man of the Year" who would have dramatically improved the Cleveland bench, and LeBron recruited him hard.

Instead of the aggressive offseason James expected, the team has dealt with internal strife.
