    Sources: LeBron informs Cavs he will return

    LeBron James has informed the Cleveland Cavaliers he will re-sign with the reigning NBA champions this summer but still has no timetable for negotiating or signing a deal, sources told ESPN.

    James is one of several members of the Cavs from last season's championship team who remain unsigned, including J.R. Smith and head coach Tyronn Lue.

    James is currently traveling and spending time with family. He will meet with agent Rich Paul and go over his contract options at some point but there is no rush, sources said.

    Tristan Thompson, the free agencies are being conducted separately, sources said.

    Smith and the Cavs have been in negotiations but remain apart on terms. Last week, Cavs general manager David Griffin told ESPN he was "very confident" the team would work out a deal to re-sign Smith.

    The situation with Lue is a little more complex. He remains under contract from a four-year, $6.5 million deal he signed in 2014 that then made him the highest-paid assistant coach in league history.

    When he was promoted to head coach in January, Lue verbally agreed to a three-year deal but never signed the pact. The sides have been talking about a new deal since June but have yet to come to terms, sources said.

    The Cavs have also had talks with veteran free agent James Jones, who remains unsigned. Jones wants to return to the Cavs but has options elsewhere, agent Joel Bell said.

    The Cavs have reached an agreement with Richard Jefferson on a two-year, $5 million deal, but the sides have yet to formalize the contract. The same goes for free-agent center Chris Andersen, who has a verbal agreement to join the team in place but also has not signed.

    A conversation between Bronie and his barber must be like the Two-Headed Monster on Sesame Street discussing thatched roofing.

    Jefferson is doing them a massive favor playing for only 2.5 mil per. He oftentimes was Cleveland's second best player during the playoff run.
