Cleveland Cavaliers rumors about LeBron James took an interesting turn on Thursday morning (May 3). As the team prepares for Game 2 of the second-round playoff series against the Toronto Raptors, a segment on “Get Up” presented a conversation about what the future holds for the Cavs’ best player. The discussion wasn’t about how the Cavs beat up on the Raptors in Game 1.

While conversing about the series between the Boston Celtics and Philadelphia 76ers, the hosts made a sharp turn about the future of both franchises. All of the hosts agreed that the future is bright for the 76ers, even stating that the two best long-term players come from the 76ers.

Those players are Joel Embiid and Ben Simmons. Then the conversation moved to what the team could do in the offseason.

LeBron James to Philadelphia 76ers?

Co-host Jalen Rose stated that there is a shot that LeBron James will sign with the Philadelphia 76ers during the NBA offseason. When asked to place odds on whether it would take place or not, Rose stated that he is 23 percent sure it will happen. That’s a pretty big number when considering all of the options that James will have when it comes to his next contract.

It would be huge if the 76ers decided to open up the wallet and give James a contract in free agency. Not only does the team already have a lot of young depth, but it could make a huge splash by offering someone a max deal this summer.

James has not publicly stated that he would want to play in Philadelphia, but if he is looking for the best shot at winning another title, it might just be in this East Coast city.

Are the Cavs in trouble?

These Cleveland Cavaliers rumors aren’t too surprising, as it is easy to pencil LeBron James on the rosters of several NBA teams.

James holds all the power now, so he could decide to leave Cleveland and find a new deal in a new city. There have been Cavs rumors about the team trying to do a sign-and-trade deal, much like how the Cavs traded James to the Miami Heat a few years back. Could that be possible? It seems more likely that James would just walk away.

At the end of the day, this is just chatter, spurred on by morning talk show hosts paid to discuss all the possibilities for players. LeBron James isn’t going to address his future unless the Raptors start getting close to eliminating the Cavs from the playoffs. If James takes the Cavs all the way back to the NBA Finals, though, he may become more willing to stay in place. No matter what happens, there are going to be a lot of Cleveland Cavaliers rumors in the offseason, as LeBron James will be a free agent.
