Sources are reporting that LeBron James will not accept anything less than a maximum contract when he begins negotiations at the start of free agency. Per ESPN:

Teams that contact James will be informed that he wants no less than the maximum salary number for next season, sources said. The max number is projected to be $22.2 million. In 2010, James accepted a pay cut when he signed with the Miami Heat, taking less than the maximum salary to help make space for other free agents.

As of now, James is not scheduling any pitch meetings with teams; he will let agent Rich Paul handle the opening stages of talks. In 2010, James scheduled six meetings with teams at his offices in Cleveland over the first three days of July.
The Heat, Dallas Mavericks, Los Angeles Lakers, Phoenix Suns, Utah Jazz, Philadelphia 76ers and Orlando Magic all currently have the cap space to offer James a deal starting at $22.2 million next season:

I was hoping Bron would be the guy to turn down the money and play for love of the game. And set some kind of example. This sucks,

Couldn't he have gotten a higher max salary if he would have stayed in Miami??????
