LeBron James’ agent has met with the Lakers, Cavaliers, Rockets, Suns and Mavericks. At least one member of the 76ers is trying to lure LeBron, too.

Of course, LeBron’s current team, the Heat, is also in the mix.

But LeBron might have already thinned the field.

RealGM:

"LeBron James has narrowed his choices down to the Miami Heat and Cleveland Cavaliers, according to Adrian Wojnarowski during an appearance on Fox Sports Live."

Wojnarowski is as reliable as they come. However, I’m always skeptical taking these reports third-hand. I didn’t see the TV segment, so I don’t know exactly what he said. It’s possible something has gotten lost in the game of telephone.

But if LeBron has narrowed his choices to just Miami and Cleveland, that shouldn’t surprise anyone.

The Heat opened free agency as heavy favorites to retain LeBron. He’s repeatedly expressed satisfaction in what Miami has accomplished while he’s played there.

Since, the door has opened, and the Cavaliers get mentioned more and more.

At this point, I’d be pretty surprised if he signs anywhere but Miami or Cleveland. If Wojnarowski actually said that, I’d be shocked if LeBron signs anywhere but Miami or Cleveland.
