“Hopefully it’s a little bit not quite as interesting as last summer,” James told while assessing his pending free agency in an interview Tuesday. “You know, I’ve been talking to my agent a lot, and there’s a few teams interested. But, hopefully, I’d like to be back here with the Mavericks. We’ll see what happens in the draft, what’s their needs and whoever [Mavericks owner Mark Cuban and coach Rick Carlisle] find for next year. Whatever players they sign, hopefully there’s a spot for me and there’s a niche I can carve out. We’ll see what happens, man, but I’m expecting it not to be quite as crazy as the last two summers.”
James might return to Dallas again, at least for training camp, but it’s doubtful that he will do so on a guaranteed contract. The Mavs made the mistake of guaranteeing the one-year minimum deal James signed last summer, only to waive him to training camp. The Mavs had to pay him while he played in China, then he double-dipped when he came back to Dallas on a couple of 10-day deals before signing for the rest of the season in early March.
