LeBron James has no plans on hearing traditional free agent pitches this offseason.
James might speak with a club official or owner, but elaborate presentations won't be part of his 2018 free agency. James along with agents Rich Paul and Mark Termini have enough understanding of the landscape and process to handle the process without the types of recruiting pitches he had in 2010.
James went through a much more elaborate courtship when he was a free agent in 2010. The Knicks, Heat, Bulls, Nets, Cavs and Clippers flew delegations in to make presentations to him, and he announced he was joining the Heat in a televised special.
When he was a free agent in 2014, James only met with the Heat and Cavs owner Dan Gilbert in person. Instead Paul and Termini met with the Bulls, Lakers, Suns, Rockets and Mavericks at the Klutch Sports office in Cleveland.
James remains undecided on whether to pick up his player option for the 18-19 season with the Cavaliers, which is worth $35.6 million. James can pick up the option and remain with the Cavaliers, pick up the option and orchestrate a trade to another team, or he can decline the option and become a free agent.
