LeBron James becomes free agent after declining player option with Cavaliers, report says
05 July, 2018, 04:07
James can also sign a short-term deal with Cleveland, something he has done each year since returning in 2014.
Relax, everyone. This isn't exactly shocking, as James' people have been said to be in contact with the Cavs through this entire process, and him not meeting with the front-office doesn't inherently mean doom awaits. Presuming Lebron opted in and then told Cleveland he wanted to go to Houston, they'd basically be forced to trade him or lose him for nothing in free agency. Of course, James could always have one with them later. Word broke Thursday that George is also opting out of his contract with the Thunder, although he has praised the organization since forcing his way out of IN via trade last summer.
According to ESPN.com's Dave McMenamin, James' camp has been in contact with the Cavs, and agent Rich Paul intends to do everything over the phone.
For those wondering what all the fuss is about, LeBron James is a good basketball player.

According to Fox Sports Australia, the recruiting pitch was made by 2017-18 NBA Rookie of the Year Ben Simmons, who shared an Instagram story earlier on Friday that featured a photo of himself and James sharing the same court, with the caption "KJ X FP" above the image. At age 33, he is coming off arguably the finest individual season in his 15-year career.
The fact that he didn't pick up his option could be good news for anxious Cavs fans, who fear James may leave them for the second time in his career.
Paul also represents Simmons and James has been complimentary of the Rookie of the Year. And it would be a huge advantage for them considering the Cavs aren't even reported to have a meeting yet. James owns two homes in Brentwood, Calif., and his SpringHill Entertainment company is based in L.A. "If guys decide not to come here, it's not a failure - we turn to next summer". But Morey would have to clear over $20 million in cap space for James to play with Paul and newly crowned MVP James Harden.
James has played in the NBA Finals eight consecutive years, but he and the Cavs were swept this season by the Golden State Warriors.
