Teams will be lining up to make their pitches to LeBron James to woo him to their franchise come July 1.
Including the San Antonio Spurs, whose pitchman will none other than a guy who James reveres — coach Gregg Popovich.
Marc Stein of The New York Times reports Popovich is prepared to force his way into the LeBron sweepstakes and make a strong case for him to head to San Antonio.
I’ve also been advised that the ever-persuasive San Antonio Spurs Coach Gregg Popovich is bound to try to force his way into the conversation to sell James on the merits of South Texas.
James has repeatedly showered praise on Popovich and those feelings have been returned by the Spurs coach.
After the Cavaliers lost a hard-fought Game 3 of the Finals to Golden State, James spoke glowingly in regards to the Spurs.
James, 33, has a $35.6 player option on his contract with the Cleveland Cavaliers, which he is expected to decline and become an unrestricted free agent July 1.
