LeBron James reportedly urged his former team the Cleveland Cavaliers, to trade for Michael Beasley before last years trade deadline.
Dave McMenamin of ESPN reported that James first admired Beasley’s skill set when he took his talents to south beach. James believed that Beasley would have been a great fit and would have bolstered the Cavs success last year.
Now LeBron is in LA and has a hand in the approval process of all Laker trades/signings. So when Beasley was on the market, the Lakers picked him up on a 1-year deal. Reuniting the two, to make a run together once again.
