“The kid from Akron” is on his way back to Cleveland.

After delivering an NBA title to Cleveland with an improbable and unprecedented run to a Finals win over the defending champion Golden State Warriors in a seven-game series, sources tell ESPN that LeBron James has agreed to sign a three-year, $100 million contract with the Cavaliers, a deal that will make him the league’s highest-paid player for the first time in his career.

In the championship-clinching Game 7 victory, James scored a team-best 27 points, and in leading the Cavaliers to their first NBA title, earned his third Finals MVP Award, which is tied for the second-most all-time.

Despite making only nine of his 24 attempts from the field and just one of his five three-point shots in the close-out win, James finished off a triple-double with the 27 points, 11 rebounds and 11 assists to go along with three blocked shots and two steals.
