LeBron James returns to LA hours before free agency opens

No Matter What Le Bron James Should Be Ohio's Favored Son

The star forward is another Southern California native who has said he wants out of San Antonio for the final year of his contract and that the Lakers are at the top of his list of destinations.

James is a 14-time All-Star, a 14-time All-NBA selection, six-time All-Defense selection, a four-time MVP and three-time champion. That came after the King was spotted landing in Los Angeles.

In February, Forbes revealed that the Lakers are the second-most valuable team in the National Basketball Association at $3.3 billion, placing them behind only the New York Knicks at $3.6 billion.

When the free agency period begins on Sunday morning, LeBron James or any of his representatives will not have an in-person meeting with Cleveland Cavaliers officials, according to a report by ESPN's Dave McMenamin.

By declining his option, James positioned himself to be able to choose where he'll play next, and Cleveland, just up the road from his home near Akron, remains a strong possibility. Still, after accepting the league's Rookie of the Year award Monday in Los Angeles, Simmons made the case for why a player like James should want to join the up-and-coming Sixers. But he vowed to do everything he could to deliver a title to championship-starved Cleveland.

Should James re-sign with a shortened one-plus-one deal in Cleveland, his compensation for 2018-19 would be $35.4 million, and 2019-20 would jump to $38.2 million as the option year.

Trump and Putin Will Meet in Helsinki for Their First Bilateral Summit
They followed it up with a dinner chat Nov 11, 2017: Trump met Putin on the sidelines of an APEC meeting held in Vietnam. He said, "getting along with Russian Federation and with China and with everybody is a very good thing ".

"That is an exact quote from my sources that said that Dan Gilbert said that". Cleveland has deep salary-cap issues - partially caused by James' failure to commit long-term - and the Cavs now lack enough talent to unseat the champion Golden State Warriors.

Gilbert and James mended some fences for his return in 2014, but they remain distant other than a shared commitment to winning.

Expect to hear plenty more about James throughout the next few days.

Q: How is the salary cap determined? ESPN's Ramona Shelburne reported this week that James would not be seeking out elaborate pitch meetings during the free-agency process.

This does not meant that he has ruled out playing for the Cleveland Cavaliers but that he would need to agree a new deal and now if he goes elsewhere then there will be no transfer fee with Los Angeles Lakers and Philadelphia 76ers linked to him.
