We're almost two full days into LeBron James Free Agency Watch Season. Talk is really starting to heat up.

Free agency doesn't officially begin until July 1, but it's possible that James will head to a new team via a sign-and-trade. For that to happen, he's going to have to opt into the final year of his contract before free agency begins.

Is that going to happen soon? A new report suggests that it might.

Basketball writer Brandon Robinson is reporting that James will meet with Cleveland's front office on Wednesday.

James will reportedly be "informing" the Cavs of his free agency plans.

"A source familiar with LeBron James’ thinking told me this afternoon that the Cavs’ free agent-to-be will inform Cleveland whether he plans to stay or go, this Wednesday," the report says.

People are excited.

Stay tuned.
