LeBron James has several options to consider in NBA Free Agency. He has close ties with San Antonio Spurs head coach Gregg Popovich, and the team is rumored to be in the odds to sign him.

According to Marc Stein of the New York Times, Popovich is very interested in pairing James with Kawhi Leonard and LaMarcus Aldridge in San Antonio. In fact, he will "force his way" into a meeting the King when talks begin in July.
The prominent ESPN commentator Stephen A. Smith reported recently that James planned to speak to six teams in addition to the Cavaliers. Philadelphia, Houston, Miami and the Lakers were all mentioned — as were the juggernaut responsible for James’s 1-8 record in his last nine finals games (Golden State) and his longtime Eastern Conference nemesis (Boston). I’ve also been advised that the ever-persuasive San Antonio Spurs Coach Gregg Popovich is bound to try to force his way into the conversation to sell James on the merits of South Texas.
Popovich has never missed the playoffs as head coach of the Spurs, and he's shown a great track record of extending players' careers. Combine that with his championship caliber and experience, it would be hard for LeBron to turn that down.

James has spoken highly of Pop in the past. These two great basketball minds working together would almost be unfair for the league.

Combine that with a young star in Kawhi and a proven veteran in Aldridge, and James can finally see himself with a team that can compete with the Golden State Warriors and extend his streak of NBA Finals appearances
