Guessing game: Cavs enter National Basketball Association draft unsure of LeBron's plans

The NBA Draft is Thursday and rumors are flying on if his Cleveland Cavaliers are going to trade their No. 8 pick to get King James more help or prepare for a rebuild. "He's trying to recruit LeBron James to Houston, and somebody close to him said to me he is as focused on recruiting LeBron as anything he's done in this league".

Altman said the process is "nothing new for us". We want to respect his space during this process. He was a.336 shooter from 3-point range in college, and said he watched "a whole lot of film and watching how I was missing and which way the ball was rotating when it was coming off my fingers and stuff like that". "His talent level is extremely high and so we're excited about him and our momentum as a franchise".

Our counter to that: The No. 8 pick is a crapshoot, LeBron is the best player in the world and the most important figure in franchise history, and the Cavs - to borrow another postseason catchphrase - have to do whatever it takes to keep him.

LeBron James next team: Where could the National Basketball Association superstar go next?

If James does not exercise his player option of $35.6 million on his contract next season by June 29, he becomes an unrestricted free agent on July 1. "If you could somehow land a player like him in a trade prior to the draft ... shortly after the draft, I certainly think that would impact LeBron's thinking".

Cleveland have faced the Golden State Warriors in three of the last four Finals series, yet they have won just one of those match-ups.

The 19-year-old also carried them to the NCAA Tournament for the first time since 2012.

"Loved the substance and character that he was about, and then he came here and had an unbelievable workout", Altman said. We were really competitive in this series, and to come away how we came away just really hurt, because I thought we were really in a couple of those games and could've swung the series either way.

The Mableton, Ga., native finished the year ranked second in the Southeastern Conference with 19.2 points per game, while adding 3.8 rebounds and a team-leading 3.6 assists per contest.

The Cavs are exploring avenues to acquire another star that could play alongside James, having reportedly inquired with the San Antonio Spurs about Kawhi Leonard's availability. The Cavs have been signaling that theyre looking to upgrade their team from the group that was swept out of the Finals this month, whether James stays or goes.
