He had until midnight Wednesday to pick up the option, which would have paid him $24 million next season.The 31-year-old superstar has been a free agent the past three summers, electing each time to sign two-year contracts with a player option for the second season. Its not yet clear if hell sign another short-term deal or a multiyear package.His agent, Rich Paul, told The Associated Press there is no timetable on when James will re-sign or what type of contract hell pursue.With the leagues salary cap poised to swell dramatically in 2017-18 thanks to a $24 billion TV deal, James may opt for another short-term deal and seek a maximum contract next summer.James decision to go year to year has allowed him to maintain flexibility while keeping pressure on Cavs ownership to continue to add quality players. The Cavs, who won their first title -- and ended Clevelands 52-year championship drought -- by becoming the first team to overcome a 3-1 deficit in the finals, have Kyrie Irving and Kevin Love under contract for three more seasons.

Later, he told the crowd at a rally honoring the Cavs, Lets get ready for next year.Appearing in his sixth straight finals, James was a unanimous choice for MVP after leading the Cavs to three straight wins to stun the favored Golden State Warriors, who won a record 73 games during the regular season.The three-time champion averaged 29.7 points, 11.3 rebounds and 8.9 assists in the series and posted a triple-double in Game 7. His biggest play came on defense when he chased down Warriors forward Andre Iguodala and blocked his shot in the final minutes of the last game.James is in his second stint with the Cavs after leaving as a free agent in 2010 for Miami.---This story has been corrected to show that James option would have paid him $24 million next season.
