The Cleveland Cavaliers are just one game away from elimination from the NBA Finals against the Golden State Warriors. That means LeBron James is potentially one game away from the end of his Cleveland Cavaliers career.

The biggest offseason target will, of course, be LeBron James. Many teams are reportedly in the hunt, from the Los Angeles Lakers to the Boston Celtics.

Chris Paul reportedly started talking with LeBron immediately after getting ousted by the Warriors in the Western Conference Finals. However, there is a dark horse candidate out there.

That's what ESPN analyst Chris Haynes had to say when he made a recent appearance on the TK Show.

Haynes thinks the Toronto Raptors have a choice.

"Then I'm going to throw out a dark horse, the Toronto Raptors. And let's not overlook the Boston Celtics. I think the Celtics are in that realm with Golden State where if Boston reached out and said 'We're serious', LeBron would listen."

LeBron has a deep history of meeting the Raptors in the playoffs, and easily dispatching the team.

The Cavs took out the Raptors in just four games during the postseason this year, which caused the firing of former head coach Dwayne Casey.

Could LeBron leave for Toronto?
