Analysis: With Cleveland scheduled for three preseason games in four days, coach David Blatt wants to rest his superstar Tuesday night. James is not injured and Blatt says this is "just part of our process and part of our management of how we want to approach preseason and best get him ready for the start of the season." James has been bothered by a stiff back early in training camp.

Analysis: The Cavs credentialed more than 300 media members that were on hand to see James, who explained his recent weight loss - he went on a strict two-month diet - was a personal challenge. Not only does he need to adjust to new teammates, but James will play for David Blatt, a successful international coach whose first job in North America is to take this talent-laden squad to the finals.
Aug. 8 3:33 PM PT4:33 PM MT5:33 PM CT6:33 PM ET22:33 GMT6:33 3:33 PM MST5:33 PM EST2:33 UAE (+1)00:3318:33 ET5:33 PM CT21:33 - James is home to stay. The NBA superstar said Friday night that he intends to play the rest of his career with Cleveland.
Analysis: When re-signed with the Cavaliers last month to a two-year, $41 million contract that included an option after one year, there was speculation he would one day test free agency again. However, James said "I don't play to go anywhere" before an event Friday night celebrating his homecoming to Northeast Ohio. His legendary career will then consist of stints with only Cleveland and Miami, if James is to be believed.

He tweeted "23 it is! It's only right I go back. 2x3(equals)6 We still family 6." The tweet included an Instagram post with photos of James holding his No. 23 Cavaliers jersey on draft night, him later in a new version of the Cavs' jersey and a one of him in his high school jersey.
Analysis: James wore No. 6 in four seasons with Miami and with the U.S. Olympic team. He used No. 23 in high school and during seven seasons in Cleveland.

It's a move that would have seemed unfathomable four years ago, after the venomous fallout that followed his decision to leave Cleveland for the Miami Heat.
Analysis: James told SI in a first-person story: "My relationship with Northeast Ohio is bigger than basketball. I didn't realize that four years ago. I do now." He spent his first seven NBA seasons in Cleveland. In four years with the Heat, he went to the NBA Finals four times, winning two championships. And now heads back to Cleveland to see if he can finally deliver on his promise of winning a crown for that title-starved city.

Analysis: The Cavs and Boston Celtics confirmed the deal on Thursday when the NBA moratorium on signings ended. The deal, first reported on Wednesday, is designed to give the Cavs enough room under the salary cap to offer James, the four-time league MVP, a maximum contract ($20.7 million).

The sides visited as James continued his family vacation, a person with knowledge of the details told The Associated Press on Thursday night.
