"It could happen," Varejao said, according to the Akron Beacon Journal. "Bron is from Akron. Akron is not too far from here. Eventually in his career, he probably wants to play at home."

James has refused to discuss free agency.

After Wednesday night's game against the Cavs at Cleveland, James will host his Heat team-mates at his home in the Akron area for Thanksgiving dinner.
