The LeBron James camp is set to meet with the Philadelphia 76ers on Sunday. James himself will not be present at the meeting.
Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN broke the news.
For today's meeting, Sixers will meet with LeBron James' reps, sources tell ESPN. James will not attend this meeting. https://t.co/KJGS0xp5Yy— Adrian Wojnarowski (@wojespn) July 1, 2018
The initial report from Wojnarowski was concerning, as it said James and his reps were going to meet with Philadelphia. It had previously been reported that James was not going to meet with the Cavaliers in person and had no desire for elaborate free agency pitch meetings.
Along with Los Angeles, Philadelphia was a rumor hot spot as far as James’ future was concerned, particularly over this past season. With a young, talented core (especially Ben Simmons, who shares Rich Paul as an agent), and the fact that he could stay in the Eastern Conference, it’s unsurprising that rumors around James going to Philadelphia swirled all season.
