CLEVELAND CAVALIERS: Home, money. While signing with Los Angeles would not assure such a trip once again, they're absolutely in a better place this offseason than they were previous year. James has not publicly commented on what team he will sign with as his family and close advisers consider offers at his "decision cave" in the Caribbean.
League sources also told ESPN the Celtics would want assurances that Leonard would not exercise his player option next summer and stay for just one season before leaving via free agency.
The Cavs have the $5.3 million taxpayer's midlevel exception available to them to spend on free agents, which they could offer to one player or try to split among two players in order to offer a slight premium over the veteran's minimum.
The belief is that no meetings are scheduled with any teams at this time, with James' agent Rich Paul preferring to conduct all business over the phone.More news: Prince William in Israel as part of historic regional tour
