There's a salary cap, though. And Luol Deng won't be cheap, as he turned down a 3 year, $30 million from the Bulls. For the Cavs to be able to even maintain a max salary slot, both Jack and Varejao would need to be moved.
Therefore, the aforementioned team cannot be assembled unless LeBron were to sign a deal for Cleveland with a starting salary of about 14 million (not a chance in hell).
They could have LeBron, Irving, Deng, Varejao, Thompson, Waiters, a lottery pick, Zeller and Karasev (two rookies that they have signed for cheap next season) for ~$65 million. The luxury tax line this season is $71 million. It's possible to have those core four and competently fill out the rest of the roster.
I'm not a Cavs fan, and I don't particularly care where he ends up, but the disrespect is comical.
That team, plus his family, and his hometown being 30 minutes away and all of that irreplaceable ****... totally plausible that he comes back.Edited by Kevin Cleveland - 1/18/14 at 1:57pm
