Basketball star LeBron James a Golden State Warrior? A new report says the Cleveland Cavaliers star is open to the possibility for the right price.


League sources tell our sister network ESPN that if the Golden State Warriors can create a max salary slot this offseason, James would be open to meeting with the defending NBA champions to talk about joining the team.

RELATED: If the Warriors talk, will Lebron James listen?

Apparently James really respects the team's winning culture.

But the Warriors would probably have to get rid of some of it's more popular players and others might need to take a pay cut to free up enough money to sign James.

RELATED: Would chasing LeBron be worth the risk for the Warriors?

Right now, there's no indication that the Warriors are doing that. But speculation still continues.

James is expected to become a free agent this offseason - meaning he'd be available to leave the Cleveland Cavaliers and sign with another team.
