Cleveland Cavaliers superstar LeBron James will not waive his no-trade clause. James could be traded if he did that.

But James, who is one of the top two players in the league, will not be moved prior to the Thursday’s 4 pm trade deadline. He insists that he will be with the team for the long haul.

Yet, the word long haul is very questionable since he is a free agent this summer. It is expected that he will decline his option next season to become a free agent.

James is already being linked to the Los Angeles Lakers and the Golden State Warriors. Yet, nobody knows what exactly he will do.

Surely, how the season plays out will impact his decision. Right now, the Cavaliers are struggling, as several players are reportedly fed up with one another.

The Cavaliers are 30-22 on the season. They have lost 13 of their last 19 games, including 10 of those games by double-digits.

“No. I’m here for the long haul,” James told reporters following Tuesday’s loss to the Orlando Magic. “I’m here for this season right now to figure out ways that we can still compete. I couldn’t give up on my teammates like that. I just couldn’t do it.

“We put too much into the game every single day. We go out and prepare. Win, lose, or draw, at the end of the day, we’re all brothers and we understand that. I owe it to my teammates to finish this season out no matter how it ends up so I would never waive my no-trade clause.”
