One of LeBron James' former teammates/friends has to know where he's going in free agency this summer, right? Surely, the NBA's best player has hinted as those close to him what his decision is ultimately going to be?

That appears to be what people close to Richard Jefferson think, anyway. The veteran NBA forward was a part of the Cavs' NBA championship team with LeBron and he's remained close with the league's star since leaving the franchise.

Jefferson is getting tired of people asking him about LeBron, though. So, he's decided to renounce his friendship.

The following note from Jefferson is going viral on social media.

"I don't know, my family doesn't know and neither do my kids," Jefferson wrote about LeBron's decision.

"Unfortunately I live in Los Angeles so the questions are unavoidable but hopefully this helps clear things up."

We know you're actually hiding something, Richard. Just say it!

Really, though, it doesn't seem like anyone actually know what LeBron is going to do. ESPN's Brian Windhorst said earlier this week that there are probably three to four people close to LeBron that might know what he's thinking. Outside of that, everyone else is being kept in the dark.

This week is going to tell us a lot, though. LeBron has until Friday at midnight to opt in or opt out of the final year of his contract with the Cavs. If he opts out, he's probably heading to the Lakers or the Sixers (or re-signing with the Cavs). If he opts in, he's either staying in Cleveland or facilitating a sign-and-trade to a place like Houston (or somewhere else).

Buckle in, this is about to get a lot more interesting.
