NBA: LeBron won't rule out Cavs return

LeBron James says he could be open to a third stint with Cleveland Cavaliers when his deal with Los Angeles Lakers comes to an end.

The Lakers are 22/1 to win the NBA Championship outright and Cleveland are 45/1 to go all the way.

Story-book career

James spent the first seven seasons of his NBA career with his hometown team after being drafted by the Cavs with the first overall pick in the 2003 Draft.

The four-time MVP left for a four-year stint with Miami Heat in 2010, before returning to Cleveland for another four seasons - helping them win the championship in 2016.

James joined the Lakers in 2018, winning his fourth title in 2020, and is in the first year of a two-year, $85million deal he signed last season.

The 37-year-old is due to become a free agent at the end of next season and James says he hasn't ruled out another spell with the Cavs.

Cavs return not crossed off

However, the 18-time All-Star says he intends to play his final season in the NBA alongside his son, Bronny James - who will be eligible to be drafted in 2024.

"The door's not closed on that," James told The Athletic when asked about a potential return to Cleveland ahead of the All-Star Game at the weekend.

"I'm not saying I'm coming back and playing, I don't know. I don't know what my future holds. I don't even know when I'm free."

He added: "My last year will be played with my son. Wherever Bronny is at, that's where I'll be. I would do whatever it takes to play with my son for one year. It's not about the money at that point."
