Report: LeBron James ‘Would Listen’ to Warriors in Free Agency

LeBron James and the Golden State Warriors reportedly could hold a free agency meeting this summer.

James would reportedly be all ears to the Dubs’ pitch.

The defending NBA champs can create a max salary slot during the offseason if James declines his $35.6 million player option.


There is no indication that Golden State is evaluating such options to acquire the Cleveland Cavaliers star at this time.

Golden State could package Klay Thompson and Andre Iguodala in a sign-and-trade for James.

To make a sign-and-trade possible, Golden State also would need Kevin Durant to decline his player option and take even less than his current annual salary of $25 million, in addition to moving Shaun Livingston’s salary to a team with cap space. Golden State probably would have to fill out its bench with players making the league minimum
