Vegas insider believes LeBron James is staying with Cavs

The Cleveland Cavaliers would like to get involved in the free agencies of Paul George or Chris Paul in concert with re-signing LeBron James.

Now, that was 'funny-ish.' Anthony Anderson kicked off the 2nd NBA Awards by taking a shot at LeBron James's future - and hairstyle - while dragging J.R. Smith's epic NBA Finals blunder!

"The process worked out pretty well, we got 50 wins past year, we got a lot of talented players on the team", Embiid told USA TODAY Sports ahead of last week's National Basketball Association draft.

The King really could be heading to Los Angeles.

With his contract expiring after the 2018/19 season, James has a player option that he can exercise to stay on with the Cavs this year. It has seemed to be a foregone conclusion he will return to the Golden State Warriors, and that's still by far the most likely scenario for him. I don't know what Kevin Durant's response to him was, that is not the information that I got.

"Behind the scenes, Kevin Durant was like, 'Why would I do that?' " Smith went on.

"Kevin Durant ain't coming to L.A. He wants to surpass LeBron James".

It looks as if the mooted sequel to Space Jam is potentially edging forward later this year, with basketball star LeBron James still very much at the heart of the project.

As Smith noted, Durant is the two-time reigning NBA Finals MVP after helping Golden State win back-to-back titles.
