LeBron James the superstar of Cleveland Cavaliers is expected to have a final call on his decision about the status whether he is staying with Cavs or going to join a new team before this Independence Day.
NESN’s Adam London gave the update from Brian Windhorst of ESPN, who has captured the entire sports career of James, about what can be the prompt venture into free agency.
Windhorst stated last week on the Lowe Post podcast, “Everyone will be a holiday on July 4, and it will be finished by then.”
There are fewer options available to the 4 time NBA MVP. He has the opportunity to opt for the final year contract with the same team, which will allow him to make other $35.6M for the contract year 2018-2019, according to Spotrac.
He could get the opportunity of a sign and trade deal, by agreeing on a long-term max extension with his existing team and then getting the chance to go with the team of his choice, or he can simply decline the player option and hit the open market.
As per Odds Shark, the Los Angeles Lakers are showing the interest to land James in their team for any betting with minus-150, which is followed by plus-450 of Philadelphia 76ers, then with plus-500 Cavaliers, with plus-700 of Boston Celtics and lastly with plus-800 of Houston Rockets.
Ramona Shelburne, ESPN.com, on Monday, reported that the 3-times NBA MVP is not interested in hearing the elaborate pitch meeting from the teams, which is pointing towards the fact that he is going to make his choice real quick.
The MVP has said it clearly that, “If there is something which is coming out in the market, but is not in my own voice, then there is nothing to believe in.”
In all these storms of words and assumptions, one thing is crystal clear, that the decision of 4 times MVP James will have a crucial part in determining the NBA’s in the next season and beyond.
