LeBron James won’t be picking any players during Thursday’s NBA draft.
At least not directly.
With the trajectory of their franchise riding on where he decides to play next season and beyond Jorge Posada Jersey , the Cleveland Cavaliers will enter this year’s draft not knowing if they’re choosing a player to help them – and James – contend for another championship, develop a prospect for the future or potentially take a player to trade.
It’s a guessing game.
James has until June 29 to exercise his $35.6 million contract option for next season or decline it and become an unrestricted free agent Cheap Brian Allen Jersey , officially making him the planet’s best and most coveted player.
The 33-year-old is not expected to reveal his intentions until after the draft.
By that time, the Cavs Youth Royce Freeman Jersey , still stinging from a Finals sweep at the hands of the Golden State Warriors, hope to have chosen a player that makes them more appealing to the three-time champion Cheap Frank Ragnow Jersey , who is mulling whether to leave them – and his Northeast Ohio home – for the second time in his career.
Anything seems possible at this point. James and his representatives have kept an air-tight lid on their plans.
The Cavs, too Authentic Rick Leonard Jersey , have been secretive while general manager Koby Altman prepares for his first draft by consulting with his staff on what to do with the No. 8 overall pick, the one they received last summer in the seismic trade that sent All-Star point guard Kyrie Irving to the Boston Celtics.
It’s quite a quandary for Cleveland Josh Reddick Jersey , and James isn’t helping the Cavs by keeping them in suspense.
It’s also possible that James hasn’t made up his mind.
