Lebron James lands in Los Angeles Saturday

Isaiah Thomas

Gilbert could pay $60.6 million taxes for the 2017-18 season and will have paid more in taxes over the last four seasons than the rest of the league combined. They could potentially waive George Hill and stretch his $19 million salary over the next several seasons, though he could also serve as a veteran mentor/backup/partner to rookie Collin Sexton. On Thursday, George told the Oklahoma City Thunder he's declining his $20.7 million option for next season.

A league source familiar with the Cavs' thinking told ESPN that the franchise has found it hard to plan for its full team around James with the way he has approached his free agency, which could manifest itself in hesitancy by free agents or trade partners to complete deals with Cleveland in the interim.

Q: Any other ways for players to become free agents before their contract expires? Well, the assumption is that wherever he signs will give him a max contract. It is important to note the lineup is likely to look different as the off-season progresses, even if James comes to L.A. But there are at least three other teams - and maybe an outsider or two - with legitimate shots at landing the three-time MVP, who made it clear following this year's NBA Finals that he's still driven to win championships. Rumors and reports have suggested James' top choices are the Cleveland Cavaliers and the Los Angeles Lakers, with teams on the periphery including the Philadelphia 76ers and the Houston Rockets.

Terms like salary caps and contract options have been in the news for weeks, so fans might have an understanding of what they all mean.

How this impacts James long-term is a little harder to predict.

Belgium v Tunisia 23 June 2018
Lukaku was forced off in the 59th minute due to an ankle ligament injury but Hazard praised the improvement shown by his teammate. Khazri and Dylan Broon scored for Tunisia but it was not enough as they were eliminated from the tournament.

Cleveland's No. 1 draft pick in 2019 belongs to the Atlanta Hawks unless the Cavs finish in the bottom 10 next season, which isn't guaranteed even if Love is traded.

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

At this point of his career, he is thinking about his National Basketball Association legacy and what he wants it to be. The Cavs' $3.4 million qualifying offer to make Rodney Hood a restricted free agent, as first reported by Cleveland.com, would be the 11th player.

At this point, it is not fair to criticize LeBron for his decision.
