LeBron James #23 of the Cleveland Cavaliers reacts in the first half against the Golden State Warriors during Game Four of the 2018 NBA Finals at Quicken Loans Arena on June 8, 2018 in Cleveland, Ohio.

Meanwhile, LeBron James' next move remains unclear.

A team contingent met with James' representatives on Sunday in Los Angeles, and sources said James was interested in playing for Philly.

LeBron James is once again a former member of the Cleveland Cavaliers. His reason for being there is unknown: The Lakers are considered a strong candidate to sign James, but he also has an offseason home in L.A.

All three of those players will have designs on a title next season.

James, born in Akron and drafted No. 1 by the Cavs in 2003, is leaving the Cavs for the second time in eight seasons. Players technically can't talk to teams until midnight Sunday morning. ESPN's Brian Windhorst's reported the Lakers are still the favorites to sign James in free agency.

In Los Angeles, James can play with a young core that has been developing over the last few years as the Lakers struggled to return to prominence.

Kevin Durant, Paul George and Chris Paul all made quick decisions to stay put and remain in the Western Conference.

Firstly, media members had somehow gotten tracking details for his flight from Anguilla to Van Nuys Airport, which led to a flurry of photographers and reporters lining the fences of the runway awaiting his arrival.

That means three teams will beat the holy shit out of each other out West while a healthy Boston squad has a much clearer path to the Finals in the East.

He returned home to the Cavaliers the next season and ended a long championship drought for Cleveland with the National Basketball Association title in 2016. Because they own his "Bird rights" the Cavs can offer James more money than any other team - a five-year, $207 million deal.
