LeBron James: where will the Cleveland star play next season?

Warriors’ reign atop the NBA is far from a guarantee

The NBA's free agency market officially opens on 1 July and three-time championship victor James, 33, must decide by 29 June if he will stay at the Cavs or sign with another franchise.

Why, you may even recall discredited reports from just a few months ago that LeBron was visiting schools in Philadelphia during the NBA All-Star break.

The first question is who should the third star be, and which teams are in a position to trade one?

ESPN reporter Adrian Wojnarowski said last week that the two superstars will have a conversation once free agency begins about the possibility of pairing up together in Los Angeles with the Lakers. NJ.com writer Joe Giglio says the Los Angeles Lakers "seem to fit the bill" and are the bookies' favourites to land James ahead of the 76ers and Houston Rockets.

After the Cavs lost 4-0 in the NBA Finals against the Golden State Warriors, James said he had "no idea at this point" where he would play next. He has been connected to the Lakers, Cavaliers, Heat, San Antonio Spurs, Boston Celtics, and Philadelphia 76ers the most this offseason. But Lillard is too expensive on his current contract for the Lakersto afford him, George, and James in a practical way. Free agency is set to open on July 1 and both players are likely to take multiple meetings throughout the process.

In terms of being ready to be a title contender, the Rockets are probably the best choice for James if they still have James Harden and Chris Paul on the team.
