World Wide Wesley Claims LeBron Leaning Strongly Toward Bulls (and Bosh too)
 

 
According to Yahoo! Sports, William Wesley "has been telling everyone that he believes LeBron James is leaning hard toward signing with the Chicago Bulls."

Wesley is a member of James' inner circle.


Adrian Wojnarowski reports that GM Gar Forman may not have been sold on Tom Thibodeau as the team's new head coach but owner Jerry Reinsdorf made the final hiring decision. Thibodeau is represented by Wesley's agency.

An executive whose team has significant salary cap space told Wojnarowski that he believes the major deals will be agreed to before the top free-agents-to-be ever officially become free agents.

"I think all the big free-agent deals will be done by July 1, if not the draft. The NBA would have a cow if [it] knew what's going on now," the executive said.

Pat Riley is planning to pitch James, Chris Bosh and Dwyane Wade on taking less than maximum-salary contracts to play together in Miami. Riley is also intrigued by the possibility of bringing in Ray Allen.

Meanwhile, it was reportedly made clear by James' inner circle that he wanted both Mike Brown and Danny Ferry to be removed from their positions with the Cavaliers.

"LeBron never had to come out and say that he wanted Brown and Ferry gone," said a team executive familiar with the dynamic in Cleveland's front office. "But the anti-Brown and anti-Ferry sentiment from LeBron's crowd was loud and clear to Dan Gilbert. He knew where LeBron stood."

Wojnarowski writes that Gilbert is willing to do whatever James asks to keep the superstar in Cleveland, which contributed to Ferry's unhappiness in his position.

"Danny's been miserable for the past two years," a friend of Ferry told Yahoo! Sports. "Even if they kept LeBron, do you still lose for winning there anyway?"

Wojnarowski reports that Gilbert is determined to hire Tom Izzo, but would hire John Calipari upon James' request.

 RealGM: Basketball Wiretap Archives: Wesley Claims LeBron Leaning Strongly Toward Bulls
I told you guys Wes representing Thibs was only a mask to start early negotiations with Bron and Chicago.. We've most likely been talking to Bron through Wes for 2-3 weeks now. I have a strong feeling that these media leaks by Wes are only trying to get the media and fans prepared and accepting for Brons inevitable departure for Chicago..

Like I said before, Wes has the chance to become the representitive of the head coach and personal advisor to the franchise player of a possible championship team for the next 6-7 years.. Thats alot of power to hold in an organization that you're not apart of..

The s**ts starting to get real.

According to unamed, unindentified source.

NEW YORK – This was the way LeBron James(notes) fantasized the free-agent frenzy playing out, the hijacking of a sport unfolding over the NBA Finals and draft. Now the arms race for basketball’s biggest soap star has transformed into the most fascinating free-for-all this sport’s ever witnessed. Tampering is out of control, side deals promised everywhere, and James and his inner circle have the NBA where they’ve always wanted it: on its knees, bowing down to the King.

Despite the extravagant dinner party to entertain LeBron and his extended list of enablers that the Cleveland Plain Dealer reports the Knicks are planning for July 1, an executive with a team in pursuit of James believes it could be Broiled Walsh and D’Antoni served to empty seats. “LeBron’s taking appointments with teams in Ohio that day,” the official said.


In this twisted, bizarre and broken culture of Stern’s NBA, the Chicago Bulls and Miami Heat overshadowed the draft with what passes as accomplishment now: Gutting good players off rosters, clearing cap space and praying World Wide Wes is lying to everyone else, not you. Ernie Grunfeld was the most unpopular man in the sport for letting the Chicago Bulls use the Washington Wizards as a repository for Kirk Hinrich’s(notes) $9 million contract, the 17th pick in the draft and $3 million.

To listen to World Wide Wes, LeBron will never look back on Cleveland. “He’s up out of there,” is the way he tells it to people, but LeBron’s Akron crew has to tsk-tsk such public talk because they all live in Northeast Ohio, and maybe always will. “We’re going to Chicago,” William Wesley tells people, “and Chris Bosh(notes) is coming, too.”

Free agency started months ago, and there isn’t a day that passes that the biggest stars, agents and teams aren’t negotiating in violation of the NBA’s make-believe rules. Just make sure Phoenix Suns GM Steve Kerr sends his five-figure check for making a joke on a radio show about James. This is the biggest farce the NBA’s ever endorsed and enabled, and that’s saying a lot considering the people responsible for running this Truman Show starring LeBron, Wes and Maverick Carter.

The Bulls believe they’re going to get James, and that’s why they so confidently cleared the cap room needed to sign James and Bosh. The Bulls think they’re getting James and Toronto’s Chris Bosh, that the supporting cast of Derrick Rose(notes) and Joakim Noah(notes) make them the most attractive destination. Nevertheless, the biggest myth of free agency, some executives pursuing James say, is that recruiting Bosh is telltale to the cause. “Bosh is attaching himself more to LeBron, than LeBron is to him,” one official said.

New Jersey is trying hard to deliver Chris Paul(notes) for James, but here’s one problem: New Jersey would never offer center Brook Lopez(notes) in a package, and Hornets GM Jeff Bower wouldn’t even accept a trade that included the burgeoning 7-footer for Paul, a source said. Most of all, the Nets’ puncher’s chance is the excessive ego of James feeling lured to the possibilities of Russian billionaire Mikhail Prokhorov.

“Prokhorov is the draw,” one Eastern Conference official said. “The King thinks he can be a billion dollar guy.”

Prokhorov is expected to fly to Akron – perhaps as early as July 1 – and here’s an idea for him: He might want to sign his GM, Rod Thorn, to a contract, because some peers believe that without a contract soon the Nets top executive could walk away and retire. No one ran a smarter, shrewder draft campaign than Thorn, who turned insufferable Minnesota GM David Kahn into a basket case over the Nets threatening to draft Wesley Johnson(notes).

Even the least provocative and interesting of writers bought the bait the Nets were plotting a package deal with Johnson and free agent Carlos Boozer(notes). The Russians running the Nets want marquee free agents and Boozer doesn’t fit the s3xy splash they’re angling for in July. For everything breaking loose on draft night, the Cavaliers had never looked so unappealing and distant in the James sweepstakes. The Cavs couldn’t give away a $30 million contract to Tom Izzo and they can’t get Byron Scott to take the offer of a job over the possibility of two others in Los Angeles that he’ll probably never get. Cleveland had no draft picks on Thursday and little more than sentimentality to sell LeBron James to stay home.

The most unforgettable moment of the offseason had to be the Cavs’ new GM, Chris Grant, standing there at his introductory news conference reading a list of scripted compliments about his owner that the organization laid out for him. The Cavs can script these things, but they’re losing control of the free-agency narrative. For so long, owner Dan Gilbert enabled everything with LeBron – the bigger-than-life billboards, the full-time jobs and summer league roster spots for his buddies and the endless capitulations that contributed to his obsession with creating a culture of all him, all the time in the NBA.

LeBron’s title chase is lurching closer and closer, the Ego Championship of the NBA. All hell is breaking loose, broken rules and broken promises ruling the day. Somewhere, James was smiling on Thursday night. All these kids getting a dream fulfilled, all these picks walking to the podium, and it was still all about LeBron James on draft night. On your knees, people. Bow down to the King. Bow to the chaos.

If we get LeBron, and Bosh comes along following LeBron we would have a core all younger than 26..

Here's the age list of the players who would be in our core, 6-7 years of dominance if you ask me..

Rose-21
LeBron-25
Bosh 26
Noah-24

Because your whole MJ Shadow theory is f**kin stupid.. Players don't give a damn about that.. Howcome Kobe wasn't afraid to do it 3 years ago? But n*ggas want to get on LeBron for comming here..

That was the point.

This is a sports forum, LeBron is the hottest subject in the NBA. Sorry but it's not the NBA FINALS.

This so happens to deal with my team.. You don't like it? Take your a.ss into an NBA Finals thread and discuss how your team should be preventing Kobe from getting in your a.ss tonight..

And yes I'm still excited about LeBron possibly comming to play with the Bulls, but I wouldn't be dissapointed if he didn't.. I would be more upset if we didn't get Bosh and LeBron went elsewhere.

there was a Toronto article that gave a list of possible trades, and the columnist was happy with a potential Chicago trade... Usually beat writers are around the teams so they have somewhat of an idea of what Toronto would be pleased with.

Hinrich's is on a declining contract that is over in 2 years. His contract is very attractive in a sign and trade..

They get a solid player in Taj Gibson,James Johnson, and the Bobcats future first round pick(we got in the tyrus trade)..

So thats 2 starters and 2 mid to lottery picks.. Thats a damn good deal for someone in a sign and trade.

Some people say that the Raps would let Bosh walk for nothing, but thats highly unlikely due to the fact that Bosh is a unique case compared to the other FA's. Bosh is the only FA that we know for 100% is leaving, there's a percentage chance that all the other dudes are gonna stay where they are. But the Raps absolutely know that this nygga Bosh is gone, they gonna do a sign and trade for sure. Then you got Turkoglu acting like a babyback b**ch, so the Raps are definitely gonna try and move some pieces and totally reconfigure their squad for '10-'11.
