LeBron James free agency: Sixers reportedly to meet with LeBron's representatives in Los Angeles on Sunday
James isn't expected to be at the meeting when his people talk to Philadelphia
Early on Sunday we received news that a surprise team, the Denver Nuggets, are to get a meeting with LeBron James. It's not clear what chance the Nuggets have to even get that audience, but another team is getting a meeting -- well, sort of.
Per Marc Stein, the Sixers will reportedly pitch LeBron on the possibility that they will be able to pull off a trade for Kawhi Leonard.
The Sixers have long been one of the teams at the forefront of the LeBron sweepstakes, and for multiple reasons. Not only are they one of the few teams with the cap space to actually sign James this summer, but they have an ultra-talented young duo in Ben Simmons and Joel Embiid. Plus, James has a good relationship with Simmons.
Is James seriously considering the Sixers or is James and his camp giving them a meeting out of courtesy and due to his relationship with Simmons. We will see. If James is intrigued by what his reps hear, he could set up another meeting for himself.
