AKRON, Ohio (AP) — LeBron James is home to stay.
The NBA superstar said Friday night that he intends to play the rest of his career with Cleveland. When re-signed with the Cavaliers last month to a two-year, $41 million contract that included an option after one year, there was speculation he would one day test free agency again.
However, James said “I don’t plan to go anywhere” before an event Friday night celebrating his homecoming to Northeast Ohio.
James even joked “I don’t have the energy to do that again.”
James said he was excited about Cleveland’s offseason moves, including the possible addition of All-Star forward Kevin Love. James won a gold medal with Love in the Olympics.
James said his only goal is to bring a championship to Cleveland.
