LeBron James signs two-year deal with Cavaliers


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(7/12/2014) If LeBron James agreeing to join the Cavaliers Friday came as a surprise, the contract his signed Saturday is just as surprising.

James has signed a deal for just two years with the Cavaliers according to ESPN.com, an it also includes an opt-out after the first season. He will be paid $42.1 million over the course of the deal, and he plans to re-sign following the 2015-16 season. The league's new television contract is expected to kick in for the 2016-17 season, raising the value of the salary cap -- and the maximum contract value as well.


LeBron James announces return to Cleveland


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(7/11/2014) Free agent forward LeBron James is returning to the Cleveland Cavaliers, the star announced via Sports Illustrated Friday.

James, who spurned Cleveland for Miami four years ago, opted out of his deal with the Heat following a loss to the Spurs in the NBA Finals. Details of the contract are not known as of now, as James announced his decision in a personal letter on SportsIllustrated.com.

James ended up finishing second in the MVP voting last season after winning the previous two. He joins Cleveland after shooting a career-high 56.7 percent from the field, while averaging 27.1 points, 6.9 rebounds and 6.3 assists per game in 77 appearances for the Heat in 2013-14. 


Report: '90 percent chance' LeBron James joins Cavaliers


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(7/8/2014) 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


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(7/5/2014) 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
(6/24/2014) 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.

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

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
(6/8/2014) 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.


Heat gets to LeBron James, who exits with leg cramps


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(6/6/2014) In the sweltering heat of an AT&T Center that had a malfunctioning air conditioning unit, Heat forward LeBron James could not get through Game 1 of the NBA Finals Thursday against the Spurs, due to severe cramping.  

James played 33 minutes in the game, but was obviously limited at points in the second half. He tried to play through cramping in his leg as a result of dehydration, but his legs appeared to lock up on him twice late, leading to his exit from the game.

That exit would ultimately cost Miami, as they went from down two to a double-digit deficit in mere minutes, ultimately losing 110-95. James was stellar as usual prior to the injury, finishing with 25 points on 9 of 17 shooting, while adding six rebounds, three assists and three steals.

James will have two full days off before the next game, and will likely spend them receiving plenty of fluids. This should not be an issue that keeps him out of action for Game 2, set for Sunday.

James scored 40 points for the 12th time in a playoff game. He is averaging 30.4 points, 6.0 rebounds and 4.4 assists in his last five playoff games.

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
