Reports: LeBron James declines option, will become free agent
01 July, 2018, 13:48
Given his star power it's expected that most National Basketball Association free agent business will be held up by James' forthcoming decision with the most likely suitors being the Los Angeles Lakers, Philadelphia 76ers and Cavaliers.
LeBron James was spotted by AIR7 HD landing at Van Nuys Airport on Saturday after a long flight from the Caribbean.
James told the Cavaliers that he is not exercising his $35.6 million contract option for next season and will become an unrestricted free agent, two people familiar with the decision told the Associated Press on Friday. With money and the reigns to the team as a non issue, the only pending factor is if the front office of the Lakers have already fumbled too many opportunities.
Having accomplished that feat, James said after this year's finals that he would consult with his family before deciding about his future plans. There are conflicting reports on whether James wants to wait to see what kind of roster the Lakers could construct before he would sign.
While the common belief is that James will sign a long-term deal, he could do the same thing he's been doing since rejoining the Cavs. Vardon also reported that James' agent Rich Paul notified Cleveland of his decision Friday morning.
It is unclear at this point if an in-person meeting between James and the Cavs has been scheduled down the line.
But the Spurs are reportedly willing to play hardball over allowing Leonard, who has a year remaining on his current deal, to be traded, demanding an eye-watering package of assets in return for his services. They could potentially waive George Hill and stretch his $19 million salary over the next several seasons, though he could also serve as a veteran mentor/backup/partner to rookie Collin Sexton.
The 33-year-old is coming off another highly productive season, as he averaged 27.5 points, 9.1 assists and 8.6 rebounds per game.
