REPORT: LeBron James To Meet With Golden State Warriors During Free-Agency?

 

According to ESPN’s Chris Haynes, LeBron James could meet with Golden State Warriors during free-agency, if they were able to offer him a max contract.

James is expected to decline his player option ($35.6 million) and become an unrestricted free agent. The possibility of resigning with the Cavs is more than given, but LeBron will most likely also meet with other teams. While both Los Angeles teams have been rumored as a potential candidate to sign LeBron, Houston and San Antonio apparently also are interested in landing James.

But, LeBron on the Warriors? How would that even work? Golden State would have to move Klay Thompson and Andre Iguadola. On top of that, they’d also have to move Shaun Livingston to a team with enough cap space. Kevin Durant would have to option out of his current deal this summer and take less money. The Warriros would also have to have a bench of players earning the league minimum to make it work. As of now, Golden State already has the highest payroll in the NBA at $135 million.
