A person familiar with the deals says the Cavaliers have agreed to trade guard Jarrett Jack, swingman Sergey Karasev and center Tyler Zeller, moves that can help their pursuit of LeBron James by clearing salary cap space. The Cavs have agreements with the Brooklyn Nets and Boston Celtics, according to the person who spoke Wednesday, July 9, 2014, to The Associated Press.

SANDUSKY, Ohio (AP) -- NBA superstar LeBron James has one more offer to consider in deciding where to play next season: Ohio's Cedar Point amusement park is promising to rename one of its roller coasters "King James" if he returns home to play for the Cleveland Cavaliers.

A park spokesman says it's a legitimate offer that originated with the CEO.

Cedar Point sent out a tweet with the proposal on Wednesday, telling James the ball was in his court. James is a free agent and is in Las Vegas as he nears a decision on his NBA future.

The Sandusky amusement park says James was a frequent visitor during his time growing up in Akron and while playing his first seven seasons for the Cavaliers before he left for Miami.
