LeBron James Expected To Join Miami Heat, Create Superteam With Bosh, Wade

Thursday’s LeBron-a-thon will end with James announcing that he will join the superteam of Dwayne Wade and Chris Bosh in Miami, according to sources. Both ESPN’s Chris Broussard and Newsday’s Alan Hahn are reporting this.

From the former:

All indications are that LeBron James is leaning toward signing with the Miami Heat on Thursday night, according to several sources with knowledge of the situation.

Barring a late change of heart, sources say James has decided to join fellow All-Stars Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh to form a potential NBA powerhouse.

And the latter:

Multiple sources are telling Newsday that LeBron James has decided to join Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh in Miami. The new Big Three is here.

As our own Mike Prada explained on Wednesday, the only remaining issue should LeBron join Miami would be money. It seems impossible that Miami would be able to sign all three stars to max deals and still have enough cap space to fill out the rest of the roster. Although Wade did indicate on Wednesday that he would be open to taking a paycut. We may soon find out just how willing he is to do so.
