Like everybody else, Denver Nuggets want LeBron JamesPosted by Inside Hoops
Here’s the Denver Post, via the Daily Camera website, reporting on the Nuggets:
The Nuggets are far removed from the initial national conversations concerning the next landing spot for LeBron James, but they will not let the opportunity pass without at least making their interest known.
James’ agent informed the Miami Heat on Tuesday morning that he’ll opt out of the final two years of his contract, which was to pay him $42.7 million, to become an unrestricted free agent. The Nuggets, according to an NBA source, will line up and make their pitch, along with pretty much every other team in the league.
Fitting James onto the Nuggets’ roster would entail clearing out a truckload of contracts. The best route, but not the only one, to clear enough cap room would be through moving the contracts of JaVale McGee ($11.2 million), Danilo Gallinari ($10.8 million) and Wilson Chandler ($6.7 million) for next season. And they’d have to do all of that without getting comparable contracts in return, which would be extremely difficult.
