Report: Cleveland Cavaliers Now Frontrunners to Land LeBron James

With all the news surrounding Cleveland Cavaliers owner Dan Gilbert taking a trip to South Florida, some have come to the conclusion that the Cavs might very well be in the hunt for All-Star forward LeBron James. 

Now comes this report by ESPN that Cleveland is now the frontrunner to land James.

This shouldn’t come as a huge surprise. James has previously indicated a willingness to return to his home-state team and the Cavaliers have a ton of young players to team up with James.

In addition to this, other reports have suggested that Cleveland is looking to add another All-Star caliber player in addition to James. It has the necessary assets to work out a deal, even of the sign-and-trade variety, for another star. Potentially someone like Kevin Love.

This is a fluid situation and things are changing by the minute.
