LeBron James has a few days to decide whether or not he'll op-in to his deal with the Cleveland Cavaliers. Very little is known about where the best player in the NBA will play his 16th season.

A decision isn't likely to come soon, either. Since the end of the NBA Finals, LeBron has been linked to several teams.

The Los Angeles Lakers, Cleveland Cavaliers, and Houston Rockets have been popular landing spots. Two other NBA team's fanbases have made attempts to lure LeBron to their city with billboards and other signage - New Orleans and Philadelphia.

During the NBA draft on Thursday night, ESPN's Brian Windhorst gave his opinion on the destinations LeBron could be considering.

Windhorst thinks Houston is out of the running. Why? Well, Windy thinks the James family won't want to move to Houston.

Check it out.

Windhorst made sure to say this is what he thinks, and that it is not an official report, so this should be taken with a grain of salt.

Vegas considers the Lakers the favorite to land LeBron, followed by the Cleveland Cavaliers. Although we've yet to enter NBA free agency (it starts July 1), the reports will keep flying in about potential landing spots for the King.
