Last Thursday, LeBron James officially re=signed with the Cavs on a three-year deal worth $100 million. The deal will make James the highest paid player in the 2016-17 season. The $33 million he’ll make in the 2017-18 season will make him the highest paid player for a single season in NBA history, per Brian Windhorst.

Apparently, there’s some added information now coming out regarding James’ contract with the Cavs, which now includes a no-trade clause. A no-trade clause is only received after a player has played eight years in the league and at least four with that one team. Front office insider for The Vertical reported on the addition to James’ contract.

Six players had no-trade clauses in their contracts last year in Kevin Garnett, Kobe Bryant, Dwyane Wade, Carmelo Anthony, Tim Duncan, and Dirk Nowitzki.

We’d be living in an upside-down world if the Cavs even dreamt of trading LeBron James, and this simply confirms James’ happiness with his home-state and his commitment to them. Expect LeBron to be in a Cavs uniform for a long, long time, Cavs Nation!
