The Cleveland Cavaliers have a huge summer ahead of them. Fresh off their Game 6 NBA Finals loss to the Golden State Warriors, the Cavaliers have big decisions to make regarding a lot of their key pieces. And according to Brian Windhorst of ESPN, the Cavs will be looking for major input from LeBron James as they construct their roster for next season:
James’ foreseeable future is in Cleveland. With the ability to opt out of the two-year deal he signed with the Cavaliers last offseason, James must now decide just how much he wants to influence the Cavs as they enter a summer full of uncertainty and potentially massive spending.
The Cavs prefer he give a lot of input. In past similar situations, James has skewed toward passive-aggressiveness from the shadows. Taking such a position now would only add to the anxiety the franchise is sure to feel.
