The NBA’s biggest remaining free agent won’t be changing franchises this summer.
LeBron James has reportedly told the Cavaliers that he will be back in Cleveland next season and ready to defend the Larry O’Brien trophy. There have been no negotiations as of press time, but one thing is for sure: LeBron is going to deservedly cash out.
From Brian Windhorst and ESPN:
LeBron James has informed the Cleveland Cavaliers he will re-sign with the reigning NBA champions this summer but still has no timetable for negotiating or signing a deal, sources told ESPN.
James is one of several members of the Cavs from last season’s championship team who remain unsigned, including J.R. Smith and head coach Tyronn Lue.
James is currently traveling and spending time with family. He will meet with agent Rich Paul and go over his contract options at some point but there is no rush, sources said.
