LeBron James may be spending his off-season relaxing at the moment, but his agent has been working around the clock talking to teams that are interested in his star players services in free agency this year.
Teams in for LBJ
According to a report from ESPN, the Phoenix Suns, Houston Rockets, Dallas Mavericks and James' home state Cleveland Cavaliers have had the opportunity to make presentations to Lebron's Cleveland based agent Rich Paul in recent days.
In addition to the teams above, Los Angeles Lakers general manager Mitch Kupchak was flying to Cleveland on Thursday night and was scheduled to meet with Paul on Friday, a source told Ramona Shelburne.
Chris Broussard added to this, saying that Suns owner Robert Sarver met with Paul on Wednesday and pitched the idea of luring James from the Miami Heat to the desert by trying to sign Carmelo Anthony or Chris Bosh as well.
Sarver has come out and spoken openly of his plan to pursue James.
"We are in a good position," he previously told The Arizona Republic. "We have a lot to offer, too, with the depth of our roster compared to some of the other teams. We think we have a favorable opportunity, but obviously he'll make his decision when he wants to make it. He's a smart player and a smart businessman. He'll look at the facts and make a decision."
The Suns really are in a no-lose position in their race to try and bring in an All-Star so they can pretty much do and say whatever they want. It's an interesting situation that Phoenix are in. You just feel that if they were in a bigger market then Carmelo and Lebron would definitely be interested with the amount of cap room available as well as the guard combo of Eric Bledsoe and Goran Dragic.
