LeBron James said in an interview on NBA TV that “at this point” he cannot imagine leaving the Miami Heat after this season when he can choose to become a free agent by exercising an option in his contract.
“We don’t know what can happen from now to July, so what I’ve been able to do this whole season to this point is just worry about what’s at hand and that’s winning another championship,” James said.
James can opt out of his deal after this season he signed in February of 2010, after next season or become a free agent in 2016. He left the Cleveland Cavaliers in a 2010 announcement on national television — setting off a firestorm of controversy.
