The news emerged two days after ESPN reported Kyrie Irving is requesting a trade from Cleveland so the point guard could be a "number one option."
Analysis: With or without Irving on his team, James plans to play out his contract, which contains a $35.6 million player option for the 2018-19 season. James is expected to decline the player option and test unrestricted free agency next summer, fueling speculation he might leave Cleveland for a second time. James is frustrated with the developments concerning Irving, ESPN reported.
