With Kevin Durant signing with the Warriors, who’s the best free agent who hasn’t agreed to terms? The same player it was prior to Durant’s announcement:

LeBron James.

Despite opting out, LeBron strongly indicated he’d return to the Cavaliers.

Then again, LeBron appeared likely to stay with the Heat in 2014 before returning to Cleveland. So, other teams want to see whether there’s an opening this year.

Marc Stein of ESPN:

Doesn’t hurt to try.

Why hasn’t LeBron signed yet? He can’t until the moratorium officially ends Thursday.

Moreover, he must decide whether to take a two-year contract or a lower salary on a one-year deal.
