It is unclear at this point if an in-person meeting between James and the Cavs has been scheduled down the line.

Cleveland Cavaliers forward LeBron James (23) tries to pass the ball against Golden State Warriors guard Stephen Curry (30) during the third quarter in game four of the 2018 NBA Finals at Quicken Loans Arena.

While James and Gilbert have notably been at odds several times over the years, McMenamin seemed to at least partially contradict Smith's report, writing, "A source familiar with the Cavs" thinking said re-signing James is Cleveland's "Plan A, B and C' when it comes to free agency". Once James makes his decision, other free agent dominos will continue to fall.

James was on a plane that flew into Van Nuys Airport in Los Angeles on Saturday, a source told ESPN.

Kanter, who had originally hoped to sign a long-term contract this summer, told ESPN in a phone interview he took out an insurance policy that will pay him $20 million if he suffers a career-threatening injury because he will be playing on a one-year deal.

Cleveland fans are experiencing haunting reminders of the 2009 free agency decision that altered Cleveland basketball until the return of the king in 2014.

High Heat, Oppressive Humidity And Potential Thunderstorms
Tomorrow (Independence Day): We've perhaps kicked heat and humidity back a notch, which is a good thing relatively speaking. While many towns will remain dry, where storms do pop up, rain could be heavy and accompanied by frequent lightning.

Many people expected James to opt out and leave the Cleveland Cavaliers but George's departure was a surprise to many people.

With the ability to sign two maximum-contract players, the Lakers can build a "Super Team" with James if they are able to also land George or work out a trade with San Antonio for Kawhi Leonard. For Cleveland, they also have to make another huge roster shakeup in order to retain James while also staying competitive.

Teams can carry a maximum of 15 players.

The chance to join one of the league's most iconic franchises has an appeal to James and he said following this year's Finals that he remains in "championship mode". Now, they are in charge and can choose which player they want to acquire.

LeBron resides in LA during the offseason, and has done for many a year now, but with the Lakers being his most likely destination in free agency, every detail of his life pertaining to the Los Angeles area is being analysed in microscopic detail.

James had until Friday at midnight ET to opt out of the final year of his existing deal with the Cavaliers.
