ESPN Cleveland: Windhorst: I don’t think LeBron will sign a 5-year deal with the #Cavs this summer. He may resign but I don’t think for the max. I am not sure he can trust the organization and Dan Gilbert after the Kyrie Irving trade. LeBron would have preferred they forced Kyrie to play.
More Rumors in this Storyline
LeBron James purchased a new home in the same Brentwood neighborhood of Los Angeles as his other property there, a source told cleveland.com.
A source close to James said the Cavs superstar and his family liked the new one better, and nothing should be construed about James’ future in Cleveland from the purchase. James can be a free agent at the end of this season, and the Lakers have been a rumored potential destination.

After spending 10 days before the All-Star break in New York consulting with a specialist to gather a second opinion on his right quad injury, All-NBA forward Kawhi Leonard bears the burden of determining when he’s prepared to play again, sources told ESPN.
Away from the Spurs to pursue second opinions in New York, Kawhi Leonard recently utilized the gymnasium inside the National Basketball Players Association headquarters in Manhattan for workouts, league sources told ESPN. The Spurs had team personnel accompanying Leonard in New York, sources said.
The injury, rehabilitation and timetable for a return has complicated the Spurs and Leonard’s relationship, causing tension and fraying the fabric of what was once a strong partnership, league sources told ESPN. The uncertainty surrounding this season — and Leonard’s future which could include free agency in the summer of 2019 — has inspired a palpable stress around the organization, league sources said.
