07:21 AM ET 04.01 | Some Cavaliers fans may be wondering whether LeBron James' recently signed Nike contract extension will have any bearing on his decision as a free agent. However, according to multiple sources, the new deal does not have any bonuses for James to play in a larger market such as New York, Chicago or Los Angeles. There has been some speculation that such clauses in endorsement deals may have been something for James to consider when he becomes a free agent in July. Instead, James will continue to focus on winning, which is helping shoe sales. The current version of James' signature shoe, the Zoom LeBron VI, has been the best-selling version of the shoe.
