NBA Mock Draft: Cleveland Cavaliers boost shaky backcourt

Share

The NBA draft is set for Thursday night with the Cleveland Cavaliers now looking at their options for the evening.

James' camp has been in contact with Cleveland's front office, according to Vardon, but there's been no real discussion about his future, meaning the Cavs essentially will be flying blind into a loaded draft in which they own a top-10 pick.

James has led the Cavaliers to four straight National Basketball Association finals since returning to his hometown franchise in 2014, but they have managed to win just one championship in 2015 going down in the other three to the Golden State Warriors.

The Cavaliers, however, are said to be keen to hold on to James and are trying to pull all the stops to keep him at the Quicken Loans Arena. A Cleveland.com report Sunday noted the Cavs are pursuing San Antonio Spurs star Kawhi Leonard in a potential trade, and Vardon added, citing sources, that Charlotte Hornets guard Kemba Walker also "could be in play" as a Cleveland trade target. There have been talks about him and James linking up at the Staples Center.

The Lakers icon wanted LeBron to know that he doesn't need to chase after another NBA Championship because his legacy as one of the greatest of all-time is already set with the achievements he's accomplished in his 15-year career. The Cleveland Cavaliers want to make sure that he stays put in Northeast Ohio.

League rules state that Cleveland must make the pick on Friday before trading it away.
