LeBron James will not pick up the player option on the final year of his contract with the Cavaliers and will become an unrestricted free agent, according to ESPN and multiple reports.
James had until 11:59 p.m. to let the Cavs know if his decision and his agent Rich Paul let the team know on Friday morning.
The three-time champion will now join an amazing off season class of free agents which include All-Stars Paul George and Chris Paul. Teams can begin negotiation with free agents at 12:01 a.m. Sunday.
Get ready for a wild ride of speculation and talking show points. News has circulated that there is a possibility if Lebron going to the Lakers or even the Sixers.
This decision was expected because it gives Lebron James multiple options. the Cav’s could resign him and can offer a five-year, $209 million contract. Needless to say stay tuned, because this off season will be better then a spanish soap opera.
