Sportsbook.com continued to offer odds on where NBA star and free agent Lebron James would ultimately end up next season with the Cleveland Cavaliers still a -150 favorite despite rumors of a move elsewhere.

In his first interview since the Cavs' season ended with a shocking, second-round loss to Boston, James told CNN's Larry King that Cleveland has "an edge" to re-sign him when the greatest collection of free agents in league history hits the open market on July 1.  That interview is set to air on Friday.

King, who interviewed James at the two-time MVP's home near Akron on Tuesday, asked the superstar if Cleveland has "an edge going in?"

"Absolutely. Because, you know, this city, these fans, I mean, have given me a lot in these seven years. And, you know, for me, it's comfortable. So I've got a lot of memories here. And -- and so it does have an edge," James said.

Also during the interview, James said he can't wait for July 1 to arrive and that he has not yet decided where he'll sign.

"I'm far from close," he was quoted as saying in a transcript posted by The Plain Dealer of Cleveland. "July is still a month away, less than a month away. I've thought about it, but I haven't began to strategize exactly."

Speculation has been strong that James would be going to the Chicago Bulls.

Sportsbook.com continued to hold the Bulls as a potential suitor at +150 odds for a payout of $15 on every $10 bet should this happen.

The New York Knicks had odds of +200 while the Miami Heat maintained odds of +600.  The New Jersey Nets are the only team to see odds slashed from +600 to +400 for a payout potential of $40 on every $10 bet at Sportsbook.com.
