Cleveland Cavaliers have been handed a major boost ahead of next season with the news that LeBron James intends to remain with the franchise.

James could become a free agent in the summer if he chooses to opt out of the final year of his contract with the newly-crowned NBA champions.

The 12-time All-Star currently pockets £16.2m ($23m) a season with the Cavs and has revealed he has no plans of leaving the Quicken Loans Arena.

‘I love it here in Cleveland. I have no intentions of leaving,’ he told ESPN on Wednesday.

‘There are some technicalities to take care of [that] I’ll leave up to my agent. That’s right from the horse’s mouth.’

James returned to his hometown franchise in the summer of 2014, after leaving four years previously in acrimonious fashion for the Miami Heat, with the aim of ending the city’s then-50-year wait for major title across America’s main sports.

Last Sunday, he did just that as 52 years of hurt for Cleveland came to an end with a 4-3 series victory over the Golden State Warriors in the NBA Finals.
