NBA rumors: LeBron James could begin weighing options this weekend

The deadline for Miami Heat star LeBron James and others around the league to opt out of their current contracts is June 29 and that date is rapidly approaching.

With the deadline just around the corner, there is plenty of discussion about potential suitors for LeBron James and it appears that he will begin to weigh those options and think about his future as early as this weekend.

From Howard Beck of Bleacher Report:

There are rumblings that James will start weighing his options this weekend. One rival executive pegged his chances of leaving Miami at 40 percent.

One of the top and most interesting potential landing spots for James is the Houston Rockets, who will reportedly make “an all out push” to land the NBA star. In Houston, James would join the likes of Dwight Howard and James Harden.

That would pair James with a dominant big man for the first time in his career.

It is going to be worth watching to see what LeBron’s next move will be, but if he begins to weigh those options this weekend we could have a clearer idea of where he will end up in the future much earlier than originally anticipated.

    I Dont Think Dwight Would Be Too Happy About Him Not Being Center Of Attention!

  • Real M-Fing talk !!!

    What is there for Lebron to weight? ….Rockets, Portland or bust !!!!

    1. Wade rested for 27 games and this was his worst playoffs ever plus he’s a year older
    2. Wade may not want to take a major paycut and a bench role to help the team out
    3. That dinosaur hatchling may not want to give back any money either and another year of Bosh just hanging out behind the arc and not helping on the boards
    4. Another year of Chalmers and Coles
    5. Riley’s idea of retooling is to show interest in Sessions and Bayless
    6. Still NO Big man to help out inside, Riley had 4 years to get someone and failed
    7. Another year where Lebron must lead the team in scoring, rebounds, assist to win
    8. I do not see a legit swingman a point or bigman coming, who can help the team
    9. Do you trust Riley to ADD 3 STARTER AND REBUILD THE BENCH ?
    10. Another year of Erik “curly, larry and moe” Spoelstra as head coach ! Brown 2.0
    11. Did Lebron not hear that Gutless attack on him by Riley, or maybe that
    was meant for Chalmers, i cannot be sure….lol whoever it was for it
    was cowardly… Riley talks about family but he will be the first to
    lead the charge of Bash Lebron if he leave, and ask yourself Lebron do
    you really want to play for a guy like that?
