The Cleveland Cavaliers aren’t for sale. 

But if Dan Gilbert ever makes the franchise available to the highest bidder, LeBron James could be interested in buying the team that drafted him first overall in 2003. 

“To be an owner of any team would be crazy,” James told The Athletic’s Jason Lloyd (h/t Yahoo Sports’ Ben Rohrbach. “If this thing opened up and I’m in a position financially, and I’ve got the right team around me, obviously.
