After losing against the Golden State Warriors in last season's NBA Finals, LeBron James could be planning to jump aboard the ship once more. In a recent report, the four-time MVP will allegedly opt out of his final year in Cleveland, which will make him an unrestricted free agent.
Throughout James' career, he has only been an UFA twice -- one when he left Cleveland and joined Miami, and last year when he opted out of his contract with the Heat to go home to the Cavs.

Jeremy Lin's career has been a roller coaster since his "Linsanity" days in New York. The former Harvard standout was acquired by the Rockets in 2012 and played for two seasons alongside James Harden, who became a superstar in his stay with Houston.
Unfortunately, the Rockets' dreams to acquire Chris Bosh last off-season pushed GM Daryl Morey to trade Lin to the Lakers. But just when everyone thought that purple and gold will be a good fit for Lin, starter Steve Nash was injured and pushed into retirement.
