On July 1, LeBron will not embark on a cross-country recruiting tour to meet the multiple teams hoping to sign him. The King’s business manager Maverick Carter told ESPN.com’s Mark Broussard that James will meet with all the teams at a neutral site once the free agency period begins.
LeBron is not going on a tour,” Carter said. “He never planned to go on a tour and has not been a part of any team’s plans for a recruiting trip.”
Where he will meet the teams is unclear, but Carter said it will not be at James’ home in Akron, Ohio. LeBron has already met with Cavs owner Dan Gilbert, who, along with the rest of Cleveland’s front office, went to visit the two-time MVP in Akron last week.
On Thursday, GM Chris Grant told the AP that there’s a chance the Cavs will meet with LeBron again before July 1, but he wouldn’t divulge any details beyond that.
Other teams were informed of The Chosen One’s decision Wednesday and many went into panic mode to find a Plan B. So really, this all boils down to one fact: The Knicks had to cancel their dinner plans. [ESPN.com]
