LeBron James will not exercise his player option with the Cavs, as expected.
LeBron is a free agent now and he has said he will return to the Cavs and it would take force majeure for that to change. His agent Rich Paul hasn’t said when they’ll sign the deal and Team LeBron is going to want to hold on to whatever leverage they have while everybody knows he’s not leaving. He’ll use it to make sure the organization is operating to he and his reps’ likings.
