The Miami Heat are only one game away from returning to the NBA Finals for the 4th consecutive year, but that isn’t stopping the discussion of a possible break up of the dominant trio of LeBron James, Chris Bosh and Dwyane Wade. The Cleveland Cavaliers and LeBron reuniting this summer rumors are picking up steam and the possibility that it could happen may have increased slightly after the Cavs jumped to the first pick in the upcoming draft.
Cleveland is still in the process of looking for a new head coach, but their former coach Mike Brown is still discussing the team’s future, and he made a comment on his belief the team will make a run for LeBron James this summer. The comment came during a radio interview on 104.3 The Ticket in Miami, which Chris Fedor of Cleveland.com transcribed.
“I think they will definitely try to make a run at him,” Brown said. “With him being from this area it makes more sense for Cleveland to go after him than any other team besides the Miami Heat.”
The likelihood of LeBron returning to the team that drafted him first overall in 2003 is still low after a few years of instability amongst the organization that has led to a few underachieving seasons. Still, the Cavs remain in a good position with talented players like star point guard Kyrie Irving and will have the chance to add another key piece in late June during the draft. The team will have the cap space to offer LeBron an enticing deal, and may consider looking for a head coach with a connection to the star to help in their pursuit.
