(Cleveland, OH) -- It's decision day for Cavaliers star LeBron James. LeBron has to decide whether to opt in on the final year of his contract worth 35.6-million-dollars.
James picking up the option wouldn't necessarily mean he would play for the Cavs next season, as he could still be traded LeBron already left his hometown team once when he signed with Miami prior to the 2010-11 season.
He's taken the Cavs to four straight NBA Finals since returning in 2014-15, including leading the team to the first championship in franchise history.
The Lakers are widely believed to be the favorite if "King James" leaves Cleveland again.
