LeBron James has opted out of the final year of his contract with the Cleveland Cavaliers. 

People close to the situation told Cleveland.com James declined a $35.6 million contract and will become an unrestricted free agent on Sunday, July 1. 

James had until 11:59 p.m. on Friday to accept the contract, and his agent, Rich Paul, shared his decision on Friday morning. 

Sources say he is interested in potentially joining the Los Angeles Lakers.

The most another team could offer is four years and $152.3 million.
