Analysis: When re-signed with the Cavaliers last month to a two-year, $41 million contract that included an option after one year, there was speculation he would one day test free agency again. However, James said "I don't play to go anywhere" before an event Friday night celebrating his homecoming to Northeast Ohio. His legendary career will then consist of stints with only Cleveland and Miami, if James is to be believed.

Analysis: James wore No. 6 in four seasons with Miami and with the U.S. Olympic team. He used No. 23 in high school and during seven seasons in Cleveland.

It's a move that would have seemed unfathomable four years ago, after the venomous fallout that followed his decision to leave Cleveland for the Miami Heat.
Analysis: James told SI in a first-person story: "My relationship with Northeast Ohio is bigger than basketball. I didn't realize that four years ago. I do now." He spent his first seven NBA seasons in Cleveland. In four years with the Heat, he went to the NBA Finals four times, winning two championships. And now heads back to Cleveland to see if he can finally deliver on his promise of winning a crown for that title-starved city.

Analysis: The Cavs and Boston Celtics confirmed the deal on Thursday when the NBA moratorium on signings ended. The deal, first reported on Wednesday, is designed to give the Cavs enough room under the salary cap to offer James, the four-time league MVP, a maximum contract ($20.7 million).

A person familiar with the deals says the Cavaliers have agreed to trade guard Jarrett Jack, swingman Sergey Karasev and center Tyler Zeller, moves that can help their pursuit of LeBron James by clearing salary cap space.
Analysis: The deals would give the Cavs enough salary-cap room to offer superstar free agent James a maximum contract. James is expected to meet with Miami president Pat Riley before making a decision about his NBA future.

James is expected to meet with Miami Heat President Pat Riley before making a final decision on his NBA future.

The sides visited as James continued his family vacation, a person with knowledge of the details told The Associated Press on Thursday night.
