MIAMI — LeBron James is considering a return to Cleveland. Well, for one night, anyway.
James has been asked to attend Saturday night’s Cavaliers jersey retirement ceremony for his former teammate and longtime friend Zydrunas Ilgauskas, who now works for the organization.
James and Ilgauskas were teammates in both Cleveland and Miami.
The timing works for James, at least with regard to the Heat schedule. Miami is at San Antonio on Thursday, is scheduled to be off Friday and then hold a practice in Chicago on Saturday afternoon in advance of its Sunday afternoon game there against the Bulls.
That would afford James plenty of time to make the short flight to Cleveland for Ilgauskas’ big night.
