All 30 teams would love to sign LeBron James this summer. But what does each squad have to offer him?
July 1, 2018 will mark the beginning of the Summer of LeBron, Part III. His decision in free agency will undoubtedly ripple across the rest of the NBA, triggering moves from other stars and non-stars alike. Depending on when James announces his destination for next season, the early days of free agency could be eerily quiet until others around the league can take their cue from LeBron, at which point all hell could break loose.
Evaluating the situation from a distance, the perfect landing spot for James would be someplace that allows him to compete for championships in the near-term and play within a more stable infrastructure while lightening his individual night-to-night responsibility with the help of another superstar. As such, only a few teams stand out as legitimate options. But if we suspend disbelief and allow for extreme possibilities, the field of candidates stretches much wider. Here are the cases for LeBron to sign with all 30 NBA teams this summer.
