 LeBron James Reportedly Declined Pat Riley’s Request To Play For Less Money In 2014


There are several stories on why LeBron James left the Miami Heat in the summer of 2014. 

Longtime NBA writer Marc Stein recently wrote James returned to the Cleveland Cavaliers because of money. He reported Heat team president Pat Riley requested James take a pay cut so the organization could overhaul the roster. 

James declined. 

“Hearing about the level of latitude James Harden says he granted the Sixers in his contract negotiations reminded me of a little-known tale stemming from Miami’s attempts to convince LeBron James to stay on South Beach in the 2014 offseason before James decided to go home to Cleveland for a second stint with the Cavaliers,” Stein wrote.
