LeBron James Focused, Won’t Discuss Contract
“You guys have to ask the questions,” [LeBron] James said. “But I’m not going to address it. Once we get to that point [in June], then I’ll address it. But I don’t think it’s appropriate right now.
“My concern is putting our team in a position to win another championship. That’s my only goal, that’s my only mind frame right now.”
James is entering the fourth season of a six-year contract that gives him the chance to test free agency after this season. Should James opt out, the Heat are hoping the four-time league Most Valuable Player bypasses free agency and signs a long-term deal.
