LeBron James made history last night by becoming the first player in league history to record 30,000 career points, 8,000 career rebounds, and 8,000 career assists, but there are lingering questions about his future with the Cleveland Cavaliers beyond this season.
The 76ers have the second-youngest roster in the league, headlined by a pair of superstars in Joel Embiid and Ben Simmons, and have enough cap space to sign him to a max contract.
James is expected to decline the $34.6 million player option on his contract for next season in order to explore free agency.
A number of other teams, specifically the Houston Rockets, Los Angeles Lakers, and Los Angeles Clippers, are planning to pursue him on the open market.
But according to a former Rivers associate, it’s not far-fetched for the one-time Knicks guard to have interest in the team’s coaching job if Jeff Hornacek, who has one year left on his contract, is let go after the season.
