Allen, Redd on LeBron's free-agent wish list
AKRON, Ohio -- LeBron James says he would like to have some input on which players the Cavaliers add to their roster as the free agency period begins next week.
He shared his thoughts about the Cavaliers' offseason during a news conference Friday in his hometown of Akron to promote "LeBron's King for Kids Bike-a-thon."
The 20-year-old All-Star said he hasn't gotten involved in the hiring of a coach and general manager, but would welcome Larry Brown as president, even though Brown limited him on playing time during the Olympics.
Brown, whose season as coach of the Piston ended Thursday night, has had discussions with the Cavaliers' ownership about becoming the team's president.
James did not mention Cavaliers free-agent center Zydrunas Ilgauskas, whom James openly campaigned to keep last season.
