Free Agency, LeBron James, Cleveland Cavaliers


If James agreed to a four-year deal now, it would be worth about $138 million, costing him nearly $100 million (in terms of the value of the contract) over what he could get if he signs a one-year deal with the Cavs now and then signs that big contract next summer. So if waiting a year to hit that $31 million number is OK with James, signing another short-term deal may still be his best option. There is also the stability of the Cavs to consider. Things can change so quickly in the NBA – injuries can ravage a team, coaches can fall out of favor, chemistry can grow stale.
