New York Knicks forward Larry Hughes jokingly added fuel to the fire by reporting how fond Cleveland Cavaliers star LeBron James is of New York coach Mike D’Antoni. James in on the New York wishlist in 2010, according to the New York Daily News.
But Hughes, who often exchanges text messages with James, also noted there is the possibility James might just stay in Cleveland. Hughes suggested James could sign an extension with the Cavaliers over the summer.
“It will be hard for him to leave,” Hughes said. “He has a great situation there. They might win it this year. If they do win, why leave? I think he’ll stay.”
