LeBron James: Four reasons why he must choose the Houston Rockets

That obviously puts Altman and Co.in a bind: Should they keep the No. 8 pick and draft a player like Oklahoma's Trae Young to prepare for life without LeBron? The Hall of Fame center says he was seeking championships later in his career and doesn't think James should do the same thing, according to ESPN.

By that time, the Cavs, still stinging from a Finals sweep at the hands of the Golden State Warriors, hope to have chosen a player that makes them more appealing to the three-time champion, who is mulling whether to leave them - and his Northeast Ohio home - for the second time in his career.

These teams, in fact, had been rumored as to have offered LeBron juicy proposals to lure James come and be part of their respective organizations. A Cleveland.com report Sunday noted the Cavs are pursuing San Antonio Spurs star Kawhi Leonard in a potential trade, and Vardon added, citing sources, that Charlotte Hornets guard Kemba Walker also "could be in play" as a Cleveland trade target. "Keep in mind that every story is coming nearly directly from his camp, do not be surprised when new LeBron news comes out, and Kawhi news follows, it is all a part of the plan in controlling the narrative".

James has until June 29 to exercise his $35.6 million contract option for next season or decline it and become an unrestricted free agent, officially making him the planet's best and most coveted player. If they can retain James and make a couple other moves to better their squad, they could be even more unsafe next season. Jordan Clarkson had his moments in the regular season. They love the ability to make changes with their roster and cap, be creative. Due to their limited assets, one avenue to getting better with or without LeBron is taking on yet another bad contract, which, in the case of Parsons, could lead to a better draft pick.

We do, however, believe they need to pull out all the stops to convince LeBron to stay. He does not want James, 33, to make the same mistake.

The odds favor finding good players the higher you draft.

However, based on the information shared by ESPN's Doris Burke during a recent appearance on the Locked On Heat podcast, it appears as though LeBron James is very much leaning towards leaving the Cavs.
