CLEVELAND, Ohio – LeBron James is coming home, he is signing with the Cleveland Cavaliers, according to Sports Illustrated.
“When I left Cleveland, I was on a mission,” James told SI. “I was seeking championships and we won two. But Miami already knew that feeling. Our city hasn’t had that feeling in a long, long, long time. My goal is still to win as many titles as possible, no question. But what’s most important for me is bringing one trophy back to Northeast Ohio.”
A post on the player’s Instagram appears to also confirm the move.
James told Sports Illustrated:
“I always believed that I’d return to Cleveland and finish my career there. I just didn’t know when. After the season, free agency wasn’t even a thought. But I have two boys and my wife, Savannah, is pregnant with a girl. I started thinking about what it would be like to raise my family in my hometown. I looked at other teams, but I wasn’t going to leave Miami for anywhere except Cleveland. The more time passed, the more it felt right. This is what makes me happy.”
