Adrian Wojnarowski: People around NBA feel LeBron James ‘likely’ to join Lakers or Clippers

..........and we all know Jerry West and his track record with luring big free agents (Shaq to LA, Durant to GS).

So he's creating a team that can defeat the Warriors, after helping build the Warriors.

This might mean that DJ's days are numbered.

It actually kind of makes more sense for Lebron to come here in 2018 anyway, since we could send Blake back to the Cavs in a sign and trade at that point (as long as we re-sign Blake this off-season) or we could trade Blake to a team with cap space to clear enough cap for Lebron to sign straight up as well if the Cavs don't want to play ball.

We would potentially have more cap space with Jamal off the books that off-season and Austin possibly opting out of his player option (as weird as that sounds, there is a real chance that he could make more money on the open market by opting out at that point).

Then we could go over the cap to re-sign DJ with bird rights.

We could also have enough cap space possibly to keep Blake, sign Lebron and let DJ go if management wanted to go in that direction too.

Management could basically choose which one to keep between Blake and DJ at that point.

Any article discussing 2018 free agency is fake news.

I wonder what impact it would have if the Cavs won in 2018.  What does James do then?

I don't know, there is a lot of smoke here, and Wojo is pretty reliable.

If Bron is planning to leave Cleveland after next season then why would PG or anybody else agree to go there when Bron is bouncing after one year upon their arrival? I know they want to upgrade to go up against GS for a forth time
