Talk About Having Juice! Especially in a league where discussing confidential power moves with star players is highly criticized & frowned upon…however, with LeBron James having the option to opt out of his contract at ANY time after the season end, the goal is to keep this guy happy!

via NBC Sports:

From Brian Windhorst and Marc Stein of ESPN.com:

Team officials spoke with LeBron James about his willingness to play alongside Smith before executing the deal, sources said.

Hands Down, as we can’t even deny the amount of power LeBron James has in regards to the entire Cleveland Cavaliers’ franchise & organization!!!

James can opt out of his contract at the end of this season to become an unrestricted free agent, and while he reportedly would consider it, the notion of him actually doing so seems preposterous on the surface.

Part of the reason for that is the amount of power that James wields within the Cavaliers organization. LeBron is still arguably the game’s best player, and championships will remain the goal for every one of his next several seasons. He needs to feel good about the moves the front office is making to help build a team around him that is capable of contending, and management consulting him on the players it wants to bring in will only solidify that relationship.
