ESPN is reporting that the Cavs will not meet in person with LeBron James or his representatives once the free agent period begins.
The report goes on to say that LeBron's agent, Rich Paul, will conduct all of his business over the phone, so this does not necessarily mean that the Cavs are out of the James sweepstakes. James' likely preference is to team up with other superstars on the Lakers as they have plenty of cap room. The Cavs can offer him the most money but are over the cap so their ability to bring in new talent is restricted without big trades. The 76ers are the only other team with enough space to sign James, while the Celtics and Rockets would need a sign and trade, which now seems unlikely. More updates to come.
