The Lakers star could sign an extension with the Angels or become a free agent at the end of the season.
A decision the Cavaliers are keen on, with the possibility of signing him next year and ending his long professional career at home.
LeBron James has doubts about his future and with one more year of contract with the Lakers, he does not seem in a hurry to make up his mind. Quite the opposite of what his team thinks, wanting to secure their star for the next two years.
Since August 4, LeBron already has the possibility of deciding his future with the Lakers and his personal future on the table. But for the moment there is no movement.
The Lakers want him to continue on the team as they consider him the best option to win a ring again if injuries respect him.. For LeBron, who turns 38 in December, the option of continuing one more year in yellow would make the most sense and reserving an option for the next one. Always hungry for titles
Three options on the table
Three options are on the table. The first would be not to extend his contract now and to become a free agent at the end of the season, which would allow him to go where he wants. The second option will be to sign one more year with the Lakers, until the end of the 2023-24 season, for a contract of 46.7 million dollars.
And the third option, extending his relationship with the Angelenos until the end of the 2024-25 campaign, with an option of one year plus one, for $97.1 million, the maximum allowed by the collective agreement for the players over 38. If he ends up signing this extension, LeBron will hit $532 million in signed contracts.a figure that no player in the history of the League will have approached.
Nobody is escaping the fact that LeBron James would like to become the NBA’s all-time leading scorer next season. and i would also like to play alongside his son Bronny, who could join the League in the summer of 2024.
With all these conditions in mind, the Lakers have already begun to negotiate their future with the star. Last week, they already met their agent, Rich Paul, Lakers vice president of operations and general manager Rob Pelinka, and the team’s new coach, Darvin Ham.
It seems, the meeting was positive and everything indicates that there will be an agreement to extend his contract, although it is not clear if it will be for a year or two. James is very comfortable at the Lakers despite the fact that all his expectations have not been met sportingly.
His only condition to continue in the Los Angeles franchise is to form a competitive team, which allows him to fight for another ring, and the franchise has already assured him that she will do everything possible to please him.
If James decides to become a free agent, the Cleveland Cavaliers seem ready to wait for him. They have assembled a winning team again and could once again attract LeBron’s interest to wrap up their long and successful home run. We’ll see what decision he ends up making.
