James' plans still are a closely guarded secret. He visited with six teams -- the New Jersey Nets, New York Knicks, Miami Heat, Los Angeles Clippers, Cleveland Cavaliers and Chicago Bulls -- last week at his business offices in downtown Cleveland and may have made up his mind already. But until he gives word, other teams are positioning themselves to make a run at the 6-foot-8, 260-pound All-Star -- or Bosh
or Wade, or maybe a combination.
There have been various reports that the Toronto Raptors were working on a sign-and-trade deal with Cleveland for Bosh
, and that James is trying to convince him to join the Cavaliers.
Both James and Bosh
are aware that such a trade is possible, and James has tried to recruit Bosh to the Cavaliers several times in the past few weeks, sources told Broussard.
But right now, Bosh
remains cold to the idea of playing in Cleveland.
