Cavs offer the most future-proof roster that will allow for flexibility in the near future with cap-space, if they choose. They hold future 1st-round picks to continue to add to the roster if needed. On top of that, if LeBron signs with the current roster, they would still have a significant amount of pieces to trade for damn near anyone they want.
James is in his prime now, why would he waste it on rookies/kids in Cleveland?
That is something worth considering. A majority of the Cavs roster next year will be players with 3 years or less experience in the NBA, all but three players if they maintained the current roster and added LeBron James. That is great for the future, with all the youth and great promise the roster has shown, but none of the roster have proven if they are playoff good. I'm willing to bet they are with the addition of LeBron, but still a factor in a decision.
My man, longtime no see.
It has been awhile. Good to see you here man.
