LeBron, Cal Offering Teams a Package Deal?

It's not exactly "Buy One, Get One Free!", but the Chicago Tribune reports that William Wesley, a friend to many NBA coaches and players, is offering LeBron James and John Calipari as a package to teams with a need for a superstar and a new coach.  Wesley, also known as "World Wide Wes for his connections, "continues to work back channels to sell Calipari and James as a package deal to franchises such as the Bulls, Nets and Clippers with coaching vacancies and salary cap room."  The Nets are unlikely to be interested.

Calipari has said publicly he will coach Kentucky again next season but is believed to be wrangling for NBA job, having been stung by his firing from the Nets in 1999. Calipari compiled a 72-112 record.
