Before announcing his decision Thursday night, LeBron will join fellow free agents Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh in a conference call Wednesday to “discuss free agency and try to move closer to finalizing their decisions,” reports Yahoo! Sports’ Adrian Wonarowski.
The three plan to make their choices public by Thursday, the first day free agents are able to sign contracts.
LeBron has remained mum on his plans (though he has created his own website and opened a Twitter account), while Bosh and Wade are still considering joining forces in Miami, Chicago or New Jersey. The Bulls and Nets need to clear extra cap room to be able to sign both, but the Heat have enough space to sign both players to max contracts outright.
Wade initially seemed like he wanted to stay in Miami when the free agency period opened but has since likened to the idea of playing elsewhere alongside a star free agent, like Bosh.
The Cavs still appear to be the leaders in the LeBron Sweepstakes, even after reports of a sign-and-trade with Toronto hit a dead-end when Bosh made it clear he wasn’t interested in going to Cleveland. The Cavs can offer James $30 million than he could receive elsewhere, and they’re in his hometown. [Yahoo! Sports]
