LeBron James frustrated with Cavaliers' off-season efforts

Cleveland Cavaliers star LeBron James is reportedly frustrated and concerned with the Cavaliers' moves this off-season, a person close to the situation told USA Today.

James can be a free agent after the 2017-18 season. His salary for the upcoming season will top $33 million.

The four-time MVP was not too pleased with the Cavaliers' inability to close a deal with the Chicago Bulls for All-Star forward Jimmy Butler. James was publicly vocal about how he didn't agree with the team's decision to part ways with general manager David Griffin.

The Cavaliers are still looking for answers in the off-season on how to take back the championship title and close the gap on the Golden State Warriors. The Warriors defeated the Cavaliers in five games.
