“LeBron James would listen to the Golden State Warriors and San Antonio Spurs if they open up a max slot. James would also consider the Miami Heat to a lesser degree. James has the most respect for those three franchises.
The original source comes from Chris Haynes via Jorge Sedano.
.@ChrisBHaynes tells us now on @ESPNLosAngeles if these teams had a max slot LeBron would listen to them b/c he respects them. Teams are the Warriors, Spurs, & less so the Heat (b/c he's been there done that). Wouldn't rule out Lakers, Cavs & Rockets. No Clippers.— Jorge Sedano (@SedanoESPN) February 1, 2018

James is probably upset with Los Angeles Clippers due to Blake Griffin trade.
In a previous article, “All the Heat wants for Christmas is a WHALE,” the dream may come true, though later than wished.
So if you ask what we really want from Santa...it’s a WHALE. We want another franchise player. We have enough mediocre and role players. We have a max paying center who is hurt and averages less than 15 PPG. We need a whale.
We need someone who is going to make Miami a desirable location again, not just for the nice weather and beautiful women, but for the basketball. Santa needs to make a superstar unhappy and present Pat Riley the right opportunity to make a deal.
Give us a WHALE for CHRISTMAS!
After all the Heat got their All-Star in Goran Dragic.
