The Miami Heat like the New York Knicks are extremely confident about being able to re-sign their star player. Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald is reporting that the Heat fully expect to re-sign LeBron James after he weighs all his options.
The Heat fully expects James will re-sign.
One associate of James told me that he still makes the Heat the clear favorite to keep James but also that the four-time MVP is “weighing all his options” and “wants to see how things play out” with the Heat’s roster, which he wants upgraded. As has been reported, James wants the maximum money allowed, and the Heat is fine with that.
But that associate also said it’s very difficult to envision him signing with Phoenix or Houston. (Dallas did not come up in the conversation with the associate.)
The associate reiterated that the idea of playing again in Cleveland again at some point appeals to James and said the Cavaliers cannot be ruled out this summer.
