where is lebron james going in 2010

LeBron James is saving one of the biggest announcements of the season for one of the biggest sports networks on television.
ESPN have announced that they will host LeBron James gala at 9pm Thursday, where LeBron will discuss his future after becoming the most sort after free agent on the 1st of July this year.
It has been reported that six sides (Bulls, Knicks, Nets, Clippers, Heat and Cavs) have had formal meetings with LeBron within the last week to discuss a deal for his future.
The Knicks have not been informed if they are in the running or not, but they believe they stand a strong chance as they have appeared to secure a five-year deal for Amar’e Stoudemire, a player that can draw in any other player in the world on reputation alone. It is also reported that the Knicks are believed to be the only team (out of the six) that have had a second meeting with LeBron’s agent Leon Rose. Grunwald (in charge of finance at the Knicks) is believed to have told Rose that after they had signed Stoudemire and LeBron they would still have money to sign other ‘big names’, and if they secure these two and still have money, then the Knicks will surely be a dominant force in the NBA next season.
The Knicks know that LeBron will be in New York this weekend to attend the wedding of Denver Nuggets star Carmelo Anthony and La La Vasquez. However, the question on Knicks fans minds will be if he is a player for them by the weekend. Tune into ESPN on Thursday at 9pm to find out.
