Word is LeBron James will not pick up the player option on the final year of his contract with the Cavaliers and will become an unrestricted free agent.

James had until 11:59 p.m. ET Friday to inform the Cavs of his intentions before the option to stay expired.

This decision will make the four-time MVP the top on the list of other star-studded free-agents including Paul George, Chris Paul and DeMarcus Cousins, among others.

When free agency begins at 12:01 a.m. ET Sunday. Free agents can’t sign contracts until July 6.
