LeBron James says he isn't leaving Cleveland and will re-sign with Cavs
LeBron James will re-sign with the Cavs
"I love it here. I love being here. I love my teammates," James told cleveland.com, moments before he boarded a float at The Q for the Cavs' championship parade through downtown Cleveland. "Obviously my agent will take care of all the logistical things but, I'm happy. I've got no plans to go nowhere at this point."
James signed a two-year deal with the Cavs last summer but has a player option so he can opt out of his deal in July. He did this so he can get a larger deal with the exploding salary cap and also to have some leverage over the Cavs, if the season didn't go the way he expected.
But now that he has led the Cavs to a championship, James is determined to do it again next season. And if he is able to duplicate how he played in this year's Finals next year, the Cavs have a strong chance at winning back to back titles.
