Cleveland Cavaliers superstar LeBron James has been deluged with recruitment tweets after Kyrie Irving’s trade demand became public. Earlier, Irving met with the Cavaliers top brass and demanded that he be traded, saying he wanted to be the focal point of a team’s offense and he’s tired of playing under James’ shadow. He mentioned four teams

After that, James received several suggestions where he should be headed next in case he bolts the Cavaliers in 2018. Los Angeles Angels outfielder Mike Trout, a fan of the Philadelphia 76ers, tweeted that James must “Trust the Process” and join the 76ers.

Trout posted the tweet after a Philadelphia sports radio station repeatedly claimed on Twitter that LeBron will not play for the 76ers “ever.” According to Justin Klugh of, the 25-year-old Trout grew up a fan of the Philadelphia Phillies and could play for them down the road.

Recently, 76ers point guard Ben Simmons did his own recruiting of James via his tweet “@KingJames,” which sent the Internet into a frenzy. James can become an unrestricted free agent in 2018 once he declines the $33 million player option for the 2018-19 season. In 2016, he signed a three-year, $99.8 million deal after steering the Cavs to their first NBA title.

James connected to a move to 76ers

This was not the first time that LeBron James was connected to the 76ers.

Earlier, Jason McIntyre of The Big Lead floated the possibility that James could join the young and promising 76ers cast that includes 2017 No. 1 overall pick Markelle Fultz, Simmons, center Joel Embiid, and power forward Dario Saric.

According to McIntyre, the 76ers will have enormous cap room to accommodate James’ salary in 2018.

They also have several players that they can trade once James decides to bring another superstar to the 76ers. Before he joined the Heat in 2010, he also convinced Chris Bosh to join him in South Beach.

LaMelo Ball wants James to join Lakers

Chino Hills guard LaMelo Ball, younger brother of Lakers 2017 No. 2 overall pick Lonzo Ball, also sent out a tweet raising the possibility of LeBron joining his brother with the Lakers in 2018.

Reports have it that James will leave the Cavaliers in 2018 and head to a Western Conference team, possibly the Lakers where he could end up playing with Paul George, who is also interested in joining the young squad. Recently, James fueled rumors that he’s interested in playing alongside Lonzo when he watched the Lakers’ Summer League game in Las Vegas.
