Fox News sports analyst Skip Bayless on Monday claimed to have insider information that basketball superstar LeBron James is planning a run for the White House at some point in the future.

Bayless, on an episode of the Fox Sports program "Undisputed," claimed to be "close with a guy who is very close to LeBron" and said that this individual claims the Los Angeles Lakers forward, who originally hails from Akron, Ohio, is "really considering" running for president.

Bayless did not reveal a timeline for James' alleged shot at the presidency, with his source reportedly describing it as "a plan of his but not yet a goal."

James last week told reporters that he was not considering a run for office, though his fellow NBA star DeMarcus Cousins has allegedly urged him to do so multiple times.
