LeBron James may not actually be the Cleveland Cavaliers' GM, but at this point, it's hard to tell the difference. Friday, the Milwaukee Bucks offered Cavs guard Matthew Dellavedova a four-year, $38.5 million deal that Cleveland will have the opportunity to match. It doesn't look like that's going to happen.
How do we know? LeBron has already congratulated Dellavedova on the deal, wishing him good luck in Milwaukee. James clearly knows the Cavs aren't going to match the terms.

No, this doesn't come as a surprise, but it's amusing to see a player essentially breaking news on a franchise's moves before it does.
