The Cleveland Cavaliers will have enough cap space to sign a maximum free agent, which has triggered speculation that LeBron James could return.
The Cavaliers could be an attractive destination to James due to the presence of Kyrie Irving and several other young, talented players. James also maintains a home in Akron.
"I guarantee you the Cavs are not counting on building around LeBron again," wrote Mary Schmitt Boyer, who covers the Cavaliers. "They have positioned themselves to have money to spend next summer when there's a huge free-agent class, which happens to include LeBron. But at this point, the Cavs are keeping all their options open."
