The Cleveland Cavaliers need help to beat the Golden State Warriors in the NBA Finals, that much is clear.

And while the Cavs reportedly tried to acquire Paul George from the Indiana Pacers this offseason, it appears that LeBron James might be the reason the deal wasnt completed.

FOX Sports 1s Chris Broussard reported Friday on The Herd with Colin Cowherd that the Cavs were ready to pull the trigger on a deal that would send Kyrie Irving to the Phoenix Suns, the Suns first-round draft pick to the Pacers and Eric Bledsoe and George to Cleveland. All that was left was for James to commit to staying with the Cavs long term.

Dan Gilbert goes to LeBron and says, Look, weve got this deal on the table. Ill do it if you commit long term to stay in Cleveland, Broussard said. LeBron wont commit. Now you can read into that if you want that he would leave, or he just wants to keep his option open. But he would not commit so Dan Gilbert would not do the deal.
