Jalen Rose, via Twitter, posted that LeBron James reportedly would not be returning to the Cavaliers next season.

His tweet read: "#NBA BREAKING NEWS (research/sources say) It is almost CERTAIN that LEBRON JAMES WILL NOT be returning to the CAVS! (Bulls/Heat/Clips)"

He also mentioned that the Chicago Bulls have the best chance of landing LeBron.  Miami would have to change their roster up, and the Clippers have a very small chance of getting him.

That tweet read: "#NBA as of 2day the Bulls have the best chance of landing LBJ...Miami would need to make more roster moves...Clips have a punchers chance!"

LeBron James' decision has been contemplated ever since the Cavaliers got knocked out of the playoffs by the Celtics.

Many teams besides Cleveland have been brought up in possibly grabbing James during the free-agency period this year. Among these teams are: Miami Heat, Chicago Bulls, Los Angeles Clippers, Washington Wizards, and New York Knicks.

James cannot do anything regarding where he will go next year until July 1, when all this frenzy will break loose.
