CLEVELAND, OH (TheSpread) – In a move that wasn’t too surprising, but did settle the nerves of many Cleveland fans, LeBron James has agreed to a new two-year deal with the Cavaliers.

ESPN’s Chris Broussard and Brian Windhorst are reporting that James’ new deal is worth a maximum of $46.9 million over the two years and the second year has a player option, similar to what James had entering this season. This allows LeBron James to be in control of his future and leave Cleveland if he feels the team isn’t living up to his expectations.

According to the latest oddsmakers, the Cavaliers are currently an 11/4 favorite to win the NBA Finals next season. The San Antonio Spurs currently have 3/1 odds while the Golden State Warriors are listed at 11/2 to repeat.

James made his return to Cleveland this past season and had an MVP-type year, averaging 25.3 points, 6 rebounds and 7.4 assists per game. He led the Cavaliers to the NBA Finals, where they lost to the Warriors, though no fault of James. Playing without Kevin Love and Kyrie Irving, James averaged an impressive 30.1 points, 11.3 rebounds and 8.5 assists per game in the Finals.
