The biggest storyline of the offseason just got some added fuel on Friday night after LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers were swept out of the NBA Finals for the first time since 2007. James wasn’t ready to talk about the future just yet in the aftermath of the blowout defeat but the options are plentiful for the MVP candidate as he weighs his option for the Decision: Part III.

"The one thing that I've always done is considered, obviously, my family," James said Friday night. "Understanding especially where my boys are at this point in their age. They were a lot younger the last time I made a decision like this four years ago. I've got a teenage boy, a preteen and a little girl that wasn't around as well. So sitting down and considering everything, my family is a huge part of whatever I'll decide to do in my career, and it will continue to be that. So I don't have an answer for you right now as far as that."

Countless teams have been tied to James in some form this postseason, but which ones have a realistic shot of landing the All-Star via a sign-and-trade or free agency. Here's a closer look at the options that will be weighed over the next few weeks.
