The man quite rightfully wants his money through free agency, but LeBron James is said to be looking for a short-term commitment (1-2 years, max.) Miami Heat teammates Chris Bosh and Dwyane Wade are reportedly willing to accept significant paycuts in order to help the Heatles reload this summer. Per the Oregonian:
James would maintain future flexibility and stand alone as the highest paid player on his roster for the first time in his 11-year NBA career should he sign that deal.
Heat teammate Chris Bosh has agreed in principal to a five-year contract extension with Miami that would pay him $11 million in the first year, the source confirmed. Further, Heat teammate Dwyane Wade has agreed to re-sign in Miami for four years, beginning at $12 million in year one.
