Collin Sexton makes case for LeBron James to stay in Cleveland

  • JR Smith. Le Bron James

He also is well aware of the rumors involving himself and reiterated that he would love to remain in Cleveland. "When we did the Kevin Love deal [in 2014] and the [ensuing] trades, we didn't have the chance to have draft picks".

Cleveland's draft decisions tonight will not only have a lasting influence on LeBron's future, but they will also have an immediate impact on the entire state of OH as well.

Entering the 2018 NBA Draft, the Cleveland Cavaliers must operate without knowing the status of LeBron James, who can opt out of his contract before the end of the month.

LeBron James #23 of the Cleveland Cavaliers tries to drive around Chris Paul #3 of the Houston Rockets during the first half at Quicken Loans Arena on February 3, 2018 in Cleveland.

Mar 15, 2018; Pittsburgh, PA, USA; Oklahoma Sooners guard Trae Young (11) drives against Rhode Island Rams guard Fatts Russell (2) during the first half in the first round of the 2018 NCAA Tournament at PPG Paints Arena.

It seems James would like to stick around, but more preferable basketball situations could lead to a second exit.

He made the most of his opportunity.

Sexton, 19, averaged 19.2 points and 3.6 assists as a freshman for the Crimson Tide. After the Cavs won the championship in 2016, James signed a two-year contract with an option for this season.




A lot can change over the next few weeks as James looks to make a decision.

"It could be my last run, too, so you just never know", Love told McMenamin in April. Due to their limited assets, one avenue to getting better with or without LeBron is taking on yet another bad contract, which, in the case of Parsons, could lead to a better draft pick. "But, just go out there and lose yourself in it and everything will fall where it needs to".

"I think the pick, along with our youth and our momentum as a franchise, for LeBron and for everybody, I think there's a real energy here", Altman said. "People have been saying that for the past four years". But I like to be here. Always wanted to win here.

My favorite player in the draft!

They don't call him "Young Bull" for nothing. Another team might be reluctant to trade a draft pick for him for the same reason Altman wouldn't want to trade the eighth pick for a player who could be a free agent next summer.

Best coach: Greg Popovich; Best Two-Way Player In The League: Kawhi Leonard; Best Player In The World: LeBron James. If he decides to leave, do they start to rebuild or try and compete for a playoff spot anyways? Depending on the player, he may answer more than one of those needs at once or at least soften the desperation.

However, Berger went on to note that the Cavs did not take LeBron's opinion into consideration when making the No. 8 overall selection. Then again, ahead of Thursday night's draft, it is #SmokeScreenSZN. Many have had Duke's Wendell Carter Jr. linked to Cleveland.
