NBA Trade Rumors: LeBron James back to the Cleveland Cavaliers?

They say home is always where the heart is. Could LeBron James be looking to go back to the Cleveland Cavaliers?

He did it once before in 2014, after leaving the Miami Heat to play for the Cavs and won the franchise’s only NBA Championship in 2016.

With a struggling Lakers team, could LeBron be looking to go back?

So what if LeBron were to demand out of Los Angeles and look to go back to the Cavaliers. What would a trade look like?

The Lakers would get a chance to get younger and get some draft picks out of the deal, with LeBron returning home to play with a younger Cavaliers team that is on the rise in the Eastern Conference and would be a possible playoff contender.

LeBron also has one year left on his contract with the Lakers and some wonder if he would bolt back to Cleveland if he had the chance to and finish his NBA career there where it all began.
