So I heard a rumor that I made up today and I felt like sharing. If the Pacers beat the Heat in game 7, Pat Riley plans on blowing the team up and starting over. It seems like at this point the are going to want to trade Wade and Bosh, and hold on to dear life to LeBron. But since James has his out in 2014, the Heat front office knows it would be best to trade James for picks. The person who told me this rumor (me) said that the Cavs would be in the drivers seat to land James.
I can't seem to work out a trade that could accomplish this salaries wise, but a package centered around draft picks would work cleanly. So Cavs fans, would you trade the 1, 31, Sac protected pick and a future first for LeBron? What about 19, the Sac, the Heat, and next years 1st plus the Memphis pick and filler? My sources tell me that the Heat would prefer the first, but take the second would do as well. I just can't nail down if CG is interested in that risk
A starting 5 of Kyrie, Dion, James, Tristan, and Noel/AndyV sounds pretty appetizing. Let me know what you think and hear.
