LeBron James Texted Kevin Durant About Coming to LA

LeBron James Texted Kevin Durant About Coming to LA

James' decision to opt out of his contract seems to take the Houston Rockets off the table, as they would have major hurdles in signing him as a free agent while keeping their core together.

As expected, LeBron James will not opt-in to his $35.6 million option with the Cavaliers, as first reported by Cleveland.com, making the greatest player in the world a free agent again. Even that was a remote possibility. Although he might be interested in joining the team, James has also made it clear he is focused on being in position to play for championships.

That gives LeBron a few more days to make his decision, and he's reportedly mulling things over in the British West Indies at a stunning luxury beach house, aka "The Decision Cave".

Rumors about his next move are abounding, with many suggesting he's plotting a move to the Los Angeles Lakers. Even for a cap wizard like Daryl Morey, unrestricted free agency makes signing James almost impossible.

Watson overhauls faltering Casey to win Travelers title
Watson entered the Travelers Championship having finished outside the top 25 in each of his four tournaments since the Masters . Open champion Brooks Koepka (nine under), Zach Johnson (nine under) and last year's victor , Jordan Spieth (four under).

Cleveland Cavaliers forward LeBron James watched during Game 2 of the NBA Finals against the Golden State Warriors in Oakland, Calif., on June 3. Both are unrestricted free agents.

The Lakers, however, are able to sign James with cap space. He's talking about the Los Angeles Lakers.

Turning down an option to stay with a team doesn't sound like positive news, but this hardly means the Cavs have been crossed off James' list.

It's tough to deny Smith's description of Leonard's personality, as the star swingman has maintained a relatively low profile in his National Basketball Association career despite arguably being the league's best two-way player when healthy. His Cavaliers downed the Celtics in seven games in the Eastern Conference Finals, catapulting James to his eighth straight NBA Finals appearance. No team can offer James as much money or as many years as the Cavs. "It ended a drought for Cleveland of 50-plus years, so I think we'll all remember that in sports history".
