Conflicting reports, confusion surround LeBron James’ future in Cleveland

Throughout the past few weeks, NBA sources have commented on LeBron James’ future with the Cleveland Cavaliers more than James himself has.

Wednesday was no different.

Chris Sheridan of SheridanHoops.com started off Wednesday’s speculation about James’ future by reporting the 2017-2018 season will be James' last season in Cleveland.

“He is 100 percent leaving,” Sheridan reported, citing an NBA source. “Relationship with owners beyond repair."

In a series of Tweets, Cleveland.com reporter Joe Vardon rejected Sheridan's report on Twitter citing three sources close to James.

Vardon wrote the information from Sheridan's source was inconsistent with an NBA source “who could speak on (James’) behalf in the way it was reported.”

Fox Sports 1’s Chris Broussard and AmicoHoops’ Sam Amico both reported James has not yet made a decision and the Sheridan report was false.

Broussard cited two sources close to James that confirmed James will not make a decision on his future NBA home until after next season.
