Cavaliers Clear The Decks To Land LeBron James

We could all see this coming over the past few days. The buzz in Cleveland was getting palatable as the possibility of LeBron James returning to the Cavaliers went from a remote possibility to a solid glimmer of hope. That glimmer has continued to grow with the confirmation that the Cavaliers have actually created the salary cap space to make a maximum contract offer to their once and hopefully future star.

In a three team deal, the Cavaliers have unloaded $9.5 million in salaries by sending out Jarrett Jack ($6.3m), Sergey Karasev ($1.5m) and Tyler Zeller ($1.7m) for the rights to some Nets draft prospects according to Adrian Wojnarowski.

It’s “Decision” time again for the King with his most emotional fan base. Hopefully things turn out better this time.
