LeBron James won't meet in person with Cavs when free agency starts

On Friday, Rich Paul, James' agent informed the Cavaliers that his client would be declining his $35.6-million player option with the Cavaliers for next season, meaning he would become an unrestricted free agent.

Only about four hours until James can be free to make a decision. 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.

Among those choices, Philadelphia feels like a distant third.

Despite being 33 years old and in his 15th National Basketball Association season, James played in all 82 regular-season games for the first time in his career, averaging 27.5 points, 8.6 rebounds, 9.1 assists and 1.4 steals over 36.9 minutes per contest.

"We don't have that much experience with Joel and I and some of the younger people on our team and guys like that. But that's all. I think those things are unlikely".

Taylor, signed to a two-year contract last October, started nine of his 67 games last season.

James would certainly be that star. The team has gone 265-63 in his four seasons at the helm, making four trips to the NBA Finals and winning three titles.

Despite the loss, and because of South Korea's win over Germany, Mexico also advances as runners-up in the group. The 2014 champions have been sent packing from the World Cup after finishing bottom of group F.

Anyway, the Sixers are likely thrilled to have landed a meeting with James' people.

Cleveland can offer the most money, and the Cavs are, after all, James' hometown team.

"That's the sense you get with him and his people".

The Lakers, on the other hand, know exactly what they need to do: find another star to pair with James. ESPN's Ramona Shelburne reported this week that James would not be seeking elaborate pitch meetings during the free-agency process. It's believed to still hold true even after George was removed from possibly joining James in Los Angeles. Superstar James Harden won the NBA Most Valuable Player Award earlier this week, and James has a strong relationship with Rockets point guard Chris Paul, who is also a free agent.

Bob Garcia IV is a sports journalist from Southern California.

While George has dreamed about playing for the Lakers, he also feels like he left something on the table with the Thunder.

According to reports, Lebron James has already made the decision on where he will be spending the next season, and plans to announce the news on Tuesday, July 3rd. Angeles on Sunday, a new report says. Though, this time around he's said to want to make a relatively quick decision. In each those two cases, James or his representatives met with several teams.
