Tonight Is Cleveland's Last Shot To Keep LeBron

JR Smith. Le Bron James

A week ahead of the June 29 deadline that LeBron James has to exercise his $35.6 million contract option for next season, Cleveland Cavaliers general manager Koby Altman says he and James' representatives have already established a "good dialogue".

Sexton, 19, averaged 19.2 points and 3.6 assists as a freshman for the Crimson Tide. The win ultimately propelled Alabama to its first NCAA Tournament berth since 2012. The confident 6-foot-3, 190-pounder is a proven scorer and he addresses a major need for the Cavs, who traded All-Star point guard Kyrie Irving to Boston a year ago.

Cleveland have faced the Golden State Warriors in three of the last four Finals series, yet they have won just one of those match-ups.

James, who can opt out and become a free agent this summer, reached the NBA Finals with the Cleveland Cavaliers in 2007 only to be swept by the San Antonio Spurs.

James will be playing his 16th season in the league.

Altman was speaking at the NBA Draft after the Cavs selected Alabama point guard Collin Sexton with the number eight pick.

-The forecasts seemingly all project Deandre Ayton to develop into an National Basketball Association star, but the 7-foot-1 center who could go No. 1 overall in Thursday's draft said he defines National Basketball Association success as not having his rookie contract be his last.

In theory, with the possibility of a rebuild looming, the Cavs should not trade the 8 pick in this year's draft.

The Liverpool striker did not celebrate his goal , fueling speculation he could still quit the national team over a political row. Mohamed was then rushed to the French Qasr Al-Aini Hospital, where the doctors tried to resuscitate him for over half an hour.

And while there are numerous unknowns, there is one indisputable fact: the Cavs must upgrade their roster to have any chance of keeping James and continuing a relationship that was resurrected in 2014.

Which team will LeBron James play for next season?

With all the rumors flying around about LeBron and other big name free agents, I'm not really sure that I trust this report more than any other. "And what was really encouraging about the workout is he actually shot it a lot better".

Some say we should draft a point guard for Lebron to groom if he stays. "I don't ever want to grant somebody that". Carter is better defensively than his Blue Devil partner and could be one of the best defensive players in this entire draft class. "Now having him (Sexton) and having Clarkson and Hood and Cedi, Big Z, and now we have guys we can develop and help and try to mature as they go along".

"You always want to take young players and mold them to be who you want them to be and take on your personality, and I think he fits it flawless".

Now comes this report from Bleacher Report's Ken Berger noting that the Cavaliers are still in on Walker despite selecting Sexton Thursday night.

He went on to be named the SEC's top newcomer and a first-team all-conference selection.
