LeBron James wants his Cavaliers to sign the Bulls’ Mike Dunleavy in free agency, reports ESPN.

Free agency begins Wednesday, and the Bulls’ Jimmy Butler has already been the subject of much speculation. The Bulls reportedly gave him a qualifying offer and maximum qualifying offer Monday.

ESPN’s Marc Stein reported Tuesday that all signs continue to point to Butler and Dunleavy remaining with the Bulls.

The Cavaliers need role players around James and must add some depth to the roster. Dunleavy, 34, averaged 10.5 points and 4.1 rebounds in his two seasons with the Bulls.
