Cleveland will not lose the next GOAT for nothing.
if Lebron plays for the qualifying offer, look for Cleveland to S&T him at once to get something back
if Lebron wants to go to the Nets, the Cavs are not letting him walk. THey will deal him
if nothing better presents itself, the Cavs will probably take Vince.
but that presents a rotation issue, since Lebron is most adept at SF and the Nets have no one else who can really light it up from outside.
Kidd, out of loyalty, is staying in NJ.
the Cavs would most likely want RJ and Krstic (which is out of the question)
so RJ and Ilic or whoever they draft this year.
but the other problem is, the Cavs will no doubt sign Lebron to a max deal in order to get the max benefit from a trade.
so there is very little chance Lebron plays for the MLE during his first free agency
