“Insiders” Say LeBron Won’t Take Less Money to Stay With Heat
Here is your daily LeBron “sources” report that means absolutely nothing.
If James is willing to restructure his deal and take less money, he’ll likely get Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh to do the same. The Big Three wants to stay together and after the record beating they absorbed, sacrificing at the bargaining table would give the Heat much-needed flexibility so it can gear up for another title run next season.
As team insiders have maintained for months, James isn’t interested in reducing his salary from $20.6 next season and $22.1 million in 2015-16 just so that team owner Micky Arison can avoid paying luxury taxes. As they say, been there, done that and all it got James was second place.
Maybe LeBron will or won’t take less money, no one knows except LeBron.
