That's just speculation, if it is true it is more likely to be an under the table handshake because it would break NBA rules. That's collusion.
No one can pay Lebron more than the Cavs, Larry Bird rule, besides the players union would not let him take a lesser contract with the Knicks, it brings the salary plateu down.
At press time it seems Lebron wont sign a 5 year deal anyway, opting for a 3 year so he can cash in when the cap goes up again.
