CLEVELAND (AP) — LeBron James signed a two-year, $42.1 million contract with the Cleveland Cavaliers that provides flexibility for the NBA's biggest star with the league's maximum salary expected to rise in the future.
A person familiar with the negotiations said Saturday that James' contract includes an option for the four-time league MVP to become a free agent next summer. However, it is strictly "a business deal," according to the person who spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because the team has not commented about the agreement.
