The Cavs insist they have a plan regarding LeBron James. They just aren't sharing it. Cavs owner Dan Gilbert and GM Chris Grant on Tuesday refused to say what they have discussed with James -- or if they have had any discussions at all.
As speculation swirled that James' interest is growing in the Los Angeles Clippers, Grant refused to say what has transpired between James and his current team.
"We have a plan and a process in place that we are going to follow from now through free agency," Grant said. "We're not going to get into specifics about what the plan is, what we're going to do, what the conversations are. We'll keep those between us and LeBron."
The speculation of James to the Clippers is intriguing, if only because James would go head to head with Kobe Bryant for L.A. bragging rights. But none of it will happen without current owner Donald Sterling selling majority ownership, and he has never expressed an interest in doing that. Rule that out unless Sterling changes his mind.
Grant and Gilbert were again asked about the Cavaliers' collapse in Game 5 of the Eastern Conference semifinals against Boston, and they still don't have a very good answer.
"There's probably a multitude of reasons," Gilbert said, before adding it's the Cavs' job to "just make sure whatever they are, it never happens again."
