CLEVELAND– Work never stops for LeBron James.
While on vacation in Anguilla, the four-time NBA MVP informed the Cavaliers he is opting out of the last year of his contract and will become an unrestricted free agent. That’s sets up The Decision 3.0.
On Friday, ESPN reporter Brian Windhorst said LeBron’s close friends and advisors will travel to the Caribbean to meet with him. The group will convene in what they’re calling “The Decision Cave,” according to Windhorst.
Just because James declined the player option with Cleveland does not mean he can’t resign. He could ink a short-term deal, which he’s done since 2014.
But the frontrunners for LeBron are the Lakers. They have the cap space to add other big free agents and the King has two homes in LA.
Free agency opens July 1.
