LeBron James is looking to make moves this offseason on behalf of the Cavs organization. According to ESPN’s Pablo Torre, LeBron has contacted his former teammate James Jones, who is now the Suns vice president of basketball operations, about a trade involving Kyrie Irving for Eric Bledsoe and the fourth pick in the NBA draft, Josh Jackson.
“LeBron James is doing some LeBron James offseason work. And my understanding is it’s not just Derrick Rose, it’s not just Eric Bledsoe. LeBron James happens to know a guy named James Jones . . . LeBron James is hustling behind the scenes, is my understanding, asking ‘Is Josh Jackson available for Kyrie Irving?’ And the answer back that I heard is ‘no, he is not.’ But LeBron James is hustling on behalf of the Cleveland Cavaliers, at least for this one year.”
It was just yesterday that the Cavs officially announced Koby Altman as the team’s GM but we really know who’s pulling the strings in the background.
