LeBron James Shot Down The 'Non-Story' of Possibly Signing With Warriors

  • Kevin Durant says report LeBron James could meet with Warriors in free agency is 'bulls--t'

The slant of Chris Haynes's explosive report is that James, who will hit free agency in the summer, would be open to a proposal from the defending NBA Champions. There's been no shortage of those in the last two seasons (also known as the time rumors of James' second exit from The Land became more common), by the way.

James, who nearly certainly will become an unrestricted free agent this summer, said Friday that the story by ESPN's Chris Haynes was "nonsense" and claims he'll handle his free agency at the appropriate time, a.k.a. this summer after the season.

Instead of talking about what James can contribute to their cause should the rumors come into fruition, West instead gave a hilarious comment about it.

Reports of James' interest in leaving the Cavaliers as a free agent this summer have been swirling since last summer. If LeBron does decide he wants to join Golden State, the maneuvers won't be so simple. Closed-door meetings and feuds between players have created doubt around the organization. "My focus right now is on this team & trying to figure out how we can get back to a fourth NBA Finals & compete for a championship". And especially when the Warriors would then become the favorites to add literally every single veteran free agent willing to take league minimum just for a chance to win. The Warriors could build an offer around Klay Thompson and Andre Iguodala to match salary and tempt the Cavaliers into making a deal, according to ESPN's Kevin Pelton.

Including $26.2 million for Durant, Golden State is projected to have $128 million in salary next season, roughly $26 million above the salary cap.

"It's nonsense", he told Jason Lloyd of The Athletic.

And make no mistake, there is no doubt that Fisher will be in shape at some point before the February 26 deadline. The veteran player intends to begin skating and training on his own before joining the gold team for practices.

The Warriors are building one of the most impressive dynasties in National Basketball Association history, and it likely could continue with or without James, who is said to be impressed with their winning culture. And he's not here to talk about joining the Warriors either.

While the Warriors were able to clear cap space for Durant in relatively easy fashion, that's no longer the case. "The Golden state thing is a non-story".

Meanwhile, Stephen Curry's contract is set to start paying him north of US$40 million annually from the 2019-20 season through 2021-22.
