Cleveland, OH, United States (4E Sports) – The agent for Miami Heat superstar LeBron James heard offers this week from the Cleveland Cavaliers, Phoenix Suns, Los Angeles Lakers, Houston Rockets and Dallas Mavericks.
Suns owner Robert Sarver met with Cleveland-based agent Rich Paul on Wednesday and pitched the idea of luring James by trying to sign Carmelo Anthony or Chris Bosh.
On Thursday, Paul met with Cavaliers owner Dan Gilbert and Los Angeles Lakers general manager Mitch Kupchak.
The four-time league MVP and Paul are handling the process differently than they did in 2010, with James removed from the front line during initial discussions.
But James emphasized he would accept only a contract for the maximum value of an estimated $20.7 million with flexibility on length.
James is spending the early days of his free agency on vacation with his family and will attend the World Cup final in Brazil on July 13.
