LeBron James Opts Out Of Contract; Countdown To Cleveland Return Imminent

Breaking news from LeBron James‘ agent, Richie Paul, as the two-time champion has declared he’ll exercise his early termination option and become an unrestricted free agent.

According to ESPN, James had until June 30 to decide whether he would stay with the former NBA champion Miami Heat or opt out of the final two years of his contract. Coupled with the rumors fueled by James’ wife, Savannah, via Instagram, many fans are wondering aloud if James and company will be taking their talents back to Ohio.
