LeBron James transfer rumors: Trade may lead to Kevin Love transfer

"I'm not going to stop in free agency in terms of getting better", Altman said.

Cleveland notably drafted Alabama's Collin Sexton in the first round of Thursday's National Basketball Association draft, and Jordan Zirm of ESPN Cleveland noted Joe Vardon of Cleveland.com said James' "people" are fans of the former Crimson Tide guard. L.A. was also fined $50,000 in February for Johnson's public comments praising the play of Milwaukee Bucks forward Giannis Antetokounmpo.

Just moments after he was selected, Sexton made an appeal for James to re-sign with Cleveland, saying "I see you need a few extra pieces this past season, and let's do it. Let's go back to the Finals". "Keep my mouth shut and go about my business and work and be ready and be prepared for this team next year". "That's the biggest thing, just to show people what I can do". Sexton's competitive fire and speed may be his best asset, which could be useful to a team with or without LeBron James.

Ultimately, Cleveland landed former Alabama point guard Collin Sexton with the eighth overall pick.

Love, who will turn 30 in September, averaged 17.6 points on 45.8 percent shooting (41.5 percent from 3) and 9.3 rebounds in 59 games during the regular season for the Cavs, missing a chunk of time with a hand injury.

"I've been told they'll both be going, if not full tilt, then pretty close to full tilt by the end of July, so August first-ish", said Stevens.

Another league source pushed the notion of a trade for Walker one step further when it comes to the Cavs' chances of keeping LeBron: Acquiring Walker, the person said, "is the only way LeBron stays".

The Cavs had sent strong signals ahead of the draft they wanted to upgrade the roster with veterans, and they still can with some trade chips and their salary cap exception (which Altman said Friday he intends to use). A Kevin Love trade is also expected to happen, with another pick in the NBA Draft 2018 as an option.

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

Sexton gives Cleveland a new weapon. That, of course, is because LeBron James will more than likely become an unrestricted free agent. ESPN has reported that if such a scenario were to come to fruition, then the Cavaliers, Philadelphia 76ers, Boston Celtics, Houston Rockets, Los Angeles Lakers, Miami Heat, and Golden State Warriors would be the teams James would meet with.
