LeBron James remains interested in finishing his career with the Cleveland Cavaliers but he's undecided about his 2018 free agency.
James has a player option for 18-19 that he's likely to decline.
"(Feelings on Cleveland) haven't changed, that's why I sit here today still in this uniform, still ready to lead this franchise to a championship," James said. "Any time I'm able to be a free agent or my contract is ending, I'll approach that when the summer comes. I don't ever cheat my teammates or cheat the fans or talk about free agency all year long because I'm not going to give energy to something I can handle in the summertime when I should be focused on what I'm doing on a day-to-day basis to help this franchise compete for a championship."
James returned to the Cavaliers in 2014 and expressed multiple times that he anticipated finishing his career with the franchise. While James re-signed with the Cavaliers in 2015 and 2016 without any doubt, he's expected to test the market in 2018.
"At the end of the day, I have a contract and I will fill out that obligation as I've always done," James said. "If you know me, I've always handled it in the most businesslike way. And I will do that with my team and I will do that in the summertime as we always have."
