WASHINGTON — LeBron James’ return to Cleveland potentially complicates Republicans’ plan to nominate their 2016 presidential pick there.

The NBA star announced Friday that he would play again for the Cleveland Cavaliers, a team where he spent seven seasons. In doing so, James adds uncertainty to the GOP’s plans to use the Cavaliers’ arena to crown their presidential nominee.
