Report: LeBron James plans to sign with Miami

By Dan Published: July 8, 2010

Sources tell Chris Broussard of ESPN that Cavs forward LeBron James will announce tonight that he will sign with the Miami Heat.

James will make his announcement live during The Decision, a special on ESPN starting at 9 p.m.

Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports is reporting that James' inner circle has told several members of the league that James is going to Miami.

Sources also told ESPN that New Orleans Hornets guard Chris Paul is urging James to stay in Cleveland to be coached by Byron Scott. He coached Paul in New Orleans from 2005 to 2009.

The talk of James to Miami heated up earlier this week. Top free agents Chris Bosh and Dwayne Wade said they'd sign with the Heat for a lower rate so they could get James.

Miami is able to sign all three after the NBA salary cap was elevated to $58 million, which is about $2 million more than teams expected.
