This year, the people of Cleveland have high hopes for their side and who could blame them?

Lebron James, Cavaliers not talking contract just yet


LeBron James

The Cleveland Cavaliers aren’t worried at all about LeBron James returning. The King has said he will return to The Land, and his opt-hot this free agency period isn’t about leaving. James intends to keep signing short-term deals until the league pushes up the salary cap.
