LeBron opts out of Cleveland deal, becomes free agent

He lifted them to a seven-game series win in the 2016 NBA Finals over the Golden State Warriors, and he has been involved in the community around the city. Once James lands, it may be a quiet summer, as it's relatively shallow free agent class and few teams have money to spend.

James can alter the entire landscape of the league if he chooses to leave Cleveland and potentially create a new super team elsewhere.

The decision to decline the option for 2018-19 was expected by James because it gives him more options, which includes him re-signing with the Cavs, who can offer him a five-year, $209 million contract.

After the departure of Kyrie Irving last summer, James has been a lone soldier for much of the year and nearly single-handedly dragged his team back to the finals. Sure, there will be some competition from the Los Angeles Lakers and the Philadelphia 76ers, but on the whole, there's no reason (at least for now) for the Cavs to believe they've lost James again.

The four-time MVP is set to become the biggest name available once free agency officially begins at 11:01 p.m. Saturday. His free agency will start this Sunday and is expected to completely shift the balance of the National Basketball Association.

Obviously, a starting lineup of Jordan, Steph Curry, Kevin Durant , Klay Thompson and Draymond Green would be flat-out ridiculous. Golden State, though, is expected to have serious competition from the Mavericks for Jordan's services this time around.

"This is a person that views himself as being stuck with LeBron James as opposed to someone salivating and craving that he stays".

The Lakers and Sixers have to be the most excited by James's decision. And while it's unclear which teams the 33-year-old will sit down with, buzz throughout the regular season suggested his list of prospective suitors isn't particularly long.

CLEVELAND- Work never stops for LeBron James. His option year for 2019-20 would be worth $38.2 million. James owns a home in Los Angeles and has spoken openly about his desire to be involved in Hollywood after his career his over.

Last week, OddsShark established the Lakers as the -325 favorites to sign James with the Cavaliers placing second at +325. He averaged 27.5 points, 8.6 rebounds and 9.1 assist in 82 games last season. He showed no signs of slowing down, if anything he had found a new gear. Despite the loss, James extended his streak of Finals appearances to an unprecedented nine straight years.

This, of course, did not happen, and it was not until James came back to Cleveland that the Cavaliers won a title. The Warriors lead the series 3-0 with Game 4 on Friday.
