|Report: '90 percent chance' LeBron James joins Cavaliers |
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
(7/8/14) There's a "90 percent chance" that free-agent forward LeBron James returns to the Cavaliers this offseason, SheridanHoops.com reports.
The source referenced in the report also said Monday that there was a 75 percent chance James would join the Cavaliers, so if the figures quoted are accurate, James is quickly becoming more and more in tune with the idea of returning to the team that drafted him. An announcement is expected to come on James' website within the coming days if he does in fact agree to a deal with the Cavaliers.
|LeBron James' agent meeting with teams |

(7/5/14) Free agent forward LeBron James' agent has begun taking meetings with a number of teams, as he looks to explore his options beyond Miami.
According to numerous reports, James' agent Rich Paul has met with the Lakers, Suns, Cavaliers and Rockets over the last few days. So far, James has not met with any teams, and it is not clear if he has plans to do so before he makes his decision.
|Report: LeBron James to opt out of current deal |
|by Joe Polito | CBSSports.com|
(6/24/14) One of the first chips of NBA free agency has fallen, as ESPN reported early Tuesday that LeBron James plans to exercise the early termination clause of his contract, becoming a free agent.
Whether this means James is looking for a new home or simply hoping to renovate his current one remains to be seen. The news reportedly comes from his agent, and by opting out James turns down the $20.6 million owed to him for the coming season.
At a point in his career where winning trumps earning, James could just be giving the Heat the flexibility it needs to surround him with another title contender. He might also be leading the way for Chris Bosh and Dwyane Wade to do the same with their current deals. Meanwhile, interested teams such as the Rockets will make a hard push to land LeBron once free agency officially begins in July.
|LeBron James drops game-high 31 in Finals elimination |
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
(6/16/14) Heat forward LeBron James put on another show on Sunday, but it wasn't enough in Game 5 of the NBA Finals against the Spurs.
James dropped a game-high 31 points on 10 of 21 from the floor, including 3 of 9 from downtown, and 8 of 9 from the free throw line. He completed a double-double with 10 rebounds, including one from the offensive end of the glass in a 104-87 loss in an elimination game.
James averaged 28.2 points, 7.8 rebounds and 4.0 assists while shooting 57.1 percent from the floor and 51.9 percent from downtown in the Finals. In 77 games this season, the 29-year-old averaged 27.1 points, 6.9 rebounds and 6.4 assists per contest.
|LeBron James erupts with 35-point, 10-rebound performance in Game 2 |
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
(6/8/14) Heat forward LeBron James, who left the previous game with leg cramps, rose to the occasion with a monster performance in Game 2 of the NBA Finals in San Antonio, leading the way with 35 points and 10 boards in a 98-96 victory.
James shot 14 of 22 from the floor, including a perfect 3 of 3 from behind the arc, and 4 of 5 from the free throw line. He also chipped in with three assists, two steals in 38 minutes. He is averaging 24.8 points, 6.4 rebounds and 4.2 assists over his last five playoff games.
|The Heat's LeBron James is as consistently remarkable an NBA superstar as we've seen in quite some time, but he took his game to even another level in 2012-13. James scored 30-plus points in 26 of 76 games last season, including a seven-game stretch of 30-plus points per game in February. He led the team in most major statistical category, including points (25.9), rebounds (8.4), assists (6.6) and minutes (41.7). James' shooting -- especially from beyond the arc -- continued to improve during the 2012-13 campaign, as he shot a career-high 56.6 percent from the field, including 40.3 percent from downtown. James also got absurdly hot in the month of February, averaging 29.7 points, 7.8 assists and 7.5 rebounds, while posting a 64.1 shooting mark from the field. It was the first time any player shot over 64 percent from the field in any calendar month since Kareem Abdul-Jabbar reached that feat in March 1983 (minimum 200 field goal attempts). James' peak has shown no signs of reaching its zenith, as he edged Kevin Durant yet again last season as the top player in Fantasy. The 28-year-old has not shown any signs of slowing down and should be considered as the No. 1 overall pick in all Fantasy formats on Draft Day.
