LeBron James could be leaning towards a return to Cleveland

The Cavs are said to be clueless as to what James will ultimately decide to do heading into the NBA Draft later this week.

Cleveland has the eighth overall pick, and it's a decision the team will have to make without knowing LeBron James' next move. Every couple of months, it seemed like his name would surface as someone LeBron James' team was considering moving. He's faced the Golden State Warriors each of those four years. "He continued by saying "[James going to LA] is the worst case scenario for LeBron, so many things have to come to fruition for that to even be a possibility, and Dan Gilbert would have to mess up so many things with the draft and beyond to push LeBron out".

Love, George Hill, Tristan Thompson, J.R. Smith, Jordan Clarkson and Korver are on the books for a combined $95,368,590 in 2018-19.

Kevin Love is a controllable asset for the Cavs for two more seasons. If LeBron stays, the Cavs, once they fill out the roster, again would be over the cap, which is projected to be $108 million. Not only would Kawhi Leonard have to be traded there, but another superstar would have to be added into the mix, one that would be willing to take less than the max.

Of six major mock drafts, Young is projected to go in the top 10 in all but one - ESPN.com's latest mock draft posted Tuesday night had Young going to the Los Angeles Clippers with the No. 12 pick.

We doubt the Cavs - who have paid nearly $500 million in combined salaries and luxury taxes the last three seasons - would take on Parsons' contract.

The Cavs are doing everything they can in order to see if they can convince the King to stay.

The Portland Trail Blazers are a huge question mark entering this upcoming season, as nobody knows their true intentions, whether they would like to break out their explosive backcourt or give it another shot at the Lillard-McCollum experiment.

But LeBron and the National Basketball Association don't work that way, so they have to do the next best thing. It's somewhat surprising that Cleveland would want to keep him if James ends up leaving.
