LeBron James may have just led the Miami Heat to a great road over the LA Clippers but one ESPN analyst believes that James could be playing for the Clippers next year.

The reigning NBA MVP can opt out of his current contract this summer and there has already been a great deal of speculation as to where the former Cleveland Cavalier man could end up.

Skip Bayless has today weighed in on the discussion to say that he believes he could play with Chris Paul in LA:

"I easily could see LeBron wanting to play next phase of his career with his very close friend CP3 (Chris Paul) and for Doc Rivers in LA." Bayless tweeted today.

A Clippers move for LeBron would not be easy. The Clips already pay a lot of their cap to stars Chris Paul, Blake Griffin and DeAndre Jordan so they would likely either need assistance from the Miami Heat or for James to take another paycut.

James did reduce his salary in order to play with Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh in Miami and it is thought that he would do the same again to continue winning championships.

The Clippers could also trade away one of their stars in order to help their cap situation and still entice LeBron in.

The LA Lakers, the Clippers in-city rivals have also been linked with a move for James in free agency but it would seem unlikely that James would want to sign with a team with few young recognisable players.
