NBA free agency predictions?

NBA free agents can't officially sign until Thursday. But the noise surrounding the league's best available players just keeps growing. LeBron James reportedly is considering the Cleveland Cavaliers. His former Miami Heat teammate Chris Bosh apparently is interested in the Houston Rockets. Carmelo Anthony could leave the New York Knicks for the Los Angeles Lakers, while Indiana Pacers guard Lance Stephenson might join Melo in L.A., or take his talents to the Dallas Mavericks. How will it all play out?

Where will LeBron James play?

Although LeBron James opted out of his contract, conventional wisdom suggested he would re-sign with the Miami Heat and give things another go with the rest of the Big Three. But now that's not so clear, as reportedly James, Chris Bosh and Dwyane Wade aren't quite on the same page. Meanwhile, with James himself on vacation, sources say his agent, Rich Paul, might have met with representatives for the Dallas Mavericks, Houston Rockets and Phoenix Suns and possibly the Cleveland Cavaliers. Will James really leave South Florida?

NBA free agency predictions?

July 1 marks the beginning of NBA free agency, and what a time it should be. LeBron James is available. So are Carmelo Anthony, Chris Bosh, James' and Bosh's fellow Big Three member Dwyane Wade and -- perhaps briefly, if he re-signs as expected -- Dirk Nowitzki. That's not to mention restricted free agents such as Eric Bledsoe and Gordon Hayward, plus trade targets like Kevin Love. What will happen when the players start moving?
