Is Shabbaz Napier enough to keep Lebron James in Miami?

Everybody wants to know where Lebron James will be playing next year. Lebron wants to win championships and the Miami Heat lost in the worst possible way to the San Antonio Spurs this year. Now with Lebron's free agency looming, the Heat are scrambling to make Lebron want to stay in Florida. As CBS Sports reported on Friday, the Heat have secured rookie Shabazz Napier as the point guard of the future but will it be enough to keep Lebron?

Since the Miami Heat star and two time champion made it clear that he will be opting out of his Miami Heat contract and testing free agency, many NBA teams have been trying to entice Lebron to make a move. It's pretty clear that every team wants him but only a few have room in their roster for the superstar.

There are rumblings that the Houston Rockets, Cleveland Cavaliers and the Los Angeles Lakers all have enough room to pay James and bring him on over. The Rockets have opted out of the last year of Chandler Parsons' contract. They also have traded Omer Asik and have been rumored to be heavily pursuing Carmelo Anthony.

Right now it's looking bad for the Miami Heat, who also have seen Dwyane Wade, Chris Bosh and Udonis Haslem recently opt for free agency. This could be good and could be bad for the Heat as they hope to put together another unbeatable team.

It's been rumored also that Carmelo Anthony and Lebron James really want to play together. With both headed into free agency, if they really want to team up, the time is now. If Wade leaves Miami and Lebron stays, will that free up enough room for Carmelo to move south?

In the next few weeks it will be very interesting to see who lands on what NBA team. It looks like Lebron would stay in Miami if he is surrounded by the right people. The Miami Heat have proved to Lebron that they are listening by trading up for Napier. Is that going to be enough though?

Where do you think Lebron James will be playing next year? Leave your thoughts in the comments below.
