LeBron opts out of Cavs’ con­tract

The Daily Herald - - SPORTS - Her­ald wire services

To the sur­prise of no one, LeBron James has opted out of his con­tract with the Cleve­land Cava­liers, be­com­ing an NBA free agent for the third straight off­sea­son. And while all signs point to him re­turn­ing to Cleve­land — per­haps on an­other two-year deal with a player op­tion for the sec­ond year — he would make more money sign­ing else­where.

“I love it here. I love be­ing here. I love my team­mates,” James said last week. “Ob­vi­ously my agent will take care of all the lo­gis­ti­cal things. I’ve got no plans to go nowhere at this point.”

James made $24 mil­lion with the Cava­liers last sea­son and would make $27.5 mil­lion if he signed an­other two-year deal with an opt-out to stay in Cleve­land.
