A high-level Philadelphia 76ers contingent is meeting with LeBron James’ agent, Rich Paul, on Sunday in Los Angeles, league sources told ESPN.
James isn’t expected to attend the meeting, which is the first significant chance for the 76ers to make case a free-agent case to James, league sources said. Ownership and possibly interim president of basketball operations/coach Brett Brown are expected to lead the meeting with James’ representatives, sources said.
The Sixers have the ability to sign James to a $35.6 million annual max salary, partnering him potentially with two of the NBA’s best young stars, Joel Embiid and Ben Simmons.
Brett Brown will become a hero in this town if the coach-playing-GM pulls this off.
