What is LeBron's worth on the trade market if the Cavs dealt him? It's hard to aggregate his worth, right because a team would want to offer the possible super max? We saw Wayne Gretzky get traded multiple times in the NHL. There were Kobe to the Bulls talks years ago. This NBA generation is strange since players wield considerable power and financials.

Would it be wise for a Minnesota or Philadelphia to make a "cannot refuse" offer to Cleveland? What about the Phoenix Suns? Last time LeBron was traded, it was via a sign and trade to Miami for draft picks to accommodate a contract. However, his worth is more than just making it to a championship. He is also a business asset. This topic is not assuming a LeBron trade. Rather it's to discuss his worth.

Bron won't sign a deal longer than two years without a player option. No team will offer the entire war chest for a player than can bolt at any time.

On a 1 year knowing he will leave after the summer and whatever team he joins likely still won't beat the Dubs, probably not very much honestly.

He is not worth crippling your team, that is for sure.

With the current state of the league, I dont think even adding the best player in the game makes you a favorite vs GS. #PussyKD

Since he has a NTC and a Ego bigger than the world. He's not going to wave his NTC and cripple the team head going too.

Lakers send Clarkson, Randle, Deng, Bryant for LBJ

I would throw the fort. I would give up Chriss, Josh jackson, 3 picks, Bender, and Knight for the deal can match up for LeBron and Love.

Imagine a lineup of
PG.Bledsoe
SG.Booker
SF. LeBron
PF. Love
C. Chandler

"we thought it would be a great learning experience" lol, but he's a RFA so it doesn't really matter what he thinks. For the Wolves, its either pay Lebron or Wiggins big money.

I don't think a team will trade the boat to get him. It's either going to be 1 year or you gotta take the bad with the good. You know he's going to play GM, sign 1-2 year deals, complain that you aren't paying role players like Thompson and JR enough so you hand them huge deals and cripple your cap. Then he'll seemingly forget all the rules of the CBA which he personally bargained for and say your team isn't doing enough to get him help. If he were on a 4 year deal teams would certainly put up with that. The reality is you'll likely get LeBron trade all your future assets building a team around him and have him leave.

They could bench Taj and get a wing who can shoot.

The Knicks would rent him without any kind of long term deal.

But what assets is he worth? It would have to be some expiring contracts and probably 2 unprotected 1st round picks.
