The Philadelphia 76ers are seen as one of a handful of contenders for LeBron James in free agency. They’re reportedly well aware of this and planning to try to bring the four-time MVP to Philly.
Keith Pompey of the Philadelphia Inquirer reported the Sixers are “prepared to do whatever it takes” to sign James, who is expected to opt out of his contract with the Cleveland Cavaliers this summer.
James, 33, can sign a contract for around $35 million for 2018-19, depending on the salary cap. The Sixers are one of only a few teams that can clear that amount of space without sacrificing any foundational pieces.
