Cavaliers' LeBron James: Signs record-breaking deal with Cavaliers
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

James agreed to a three-year, $100 million contract with the Cavaliers on Thursday, Marc Stein of ESPN.com reports.

With his new deal, James will much deservedly become the league's highest paid player during the 2016-17 season, earning a base salary of $31 million. It remains to be seen whether the second or third year of the deal will contain a player option, but either way, James isn't expected to leave the Cavaliers any time soon. With all of that being said, James will continue to be one of the best fantasy options in the league and will look to take his team to back-to-back NBA championships.

Cavaliers' LeBron James: Opts out of player option
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

James will opt out of his $24 million player option for the 2016-17 season and become an unrestricted free agent, Chris Broussard of ESPN.com reports.

James already announced after the NBA Finals that he'll return to the Cavaliers, but with the salary cap expected to increase at the start of the new league year, the two sides will first need to come to an agreement on a new deal that will pay James an even higher salary. There shouldn't be much to worry about here and once the deal does get done, the team can get back to preparing for another title run in the 2016-17 season.

Cavaliers' LeBron James: Opts out of Olympic games
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

James won't play for Team USA in the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio de Janeiro, Joe Vardon of Cleveland.com reports.

In a widely expected move, James joins a slew of American players electing to sit out the Games. James is coming off a very long season that ended with his third NBA championship, so he'll take some time off to get a much-needed break from the grind. James has already stated he'll be back with the Cavaliers next season, so the Finals MVP can keep his focus on preparing for another title run in 2016-17.

Cavaliers' LeBron James: Says he'll return to Cleveland next season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

James told USA Today's Jeff Zillgitt on Wednesday that he will return to the Cavaliers next season.

The Cavaliers held their championship parade in Cleveland on Wednesday, and while it's possible that James, who claimed his third NBA Finals MVP award, was swept up in the emotion of the event, there was little doubt that he'd leave his hometown team this summer. He's still expected to opt out of the final season of his two-year contract to become an unrestricted free agent on July 1, but James is likely only doing so to increase his earnings with the salary cap set to rise. James figures to sign another short-term deal as the Cavaliers look to further flesh out the roster around him.

Cavaliers' LeBron James: Records triple-double to clinch championship in Game 7
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

James totaled 27 points (9-24 FG, 1-5 3Pt, 8-10 FT), 11 rebounds, 11 assists, three blocks and two steals across 47 minutes during Sunday's 93-89 Game 7 win over the Warriors.

James wasn't particularly proficient from the floor Sunday, but he delivered the first triple-double in a Game 7 of the NBA Finals since the Lakers' James Worthy did it back in 1988. Unsurprisingly, with averages of 29.7 points (on 49.4% shooting from the floor), 11.3 rebounds, 8.9 assists, 2.6 steals, 2.3 blocks and 1.9 three-pointers in 42.0 minutes per game during the series, James was a unanimous choice among voters for the NBA Finals MVP -- the third of his career -- after leading the Cavaliers all the way back from a 3-1 series deficit with several superhuman efforts. It's the third NBA title for James and first for the Cavaliers, who ended a 52-year streak of no pro sports championships in the city of Cleveland.
