LeBron James showed up at his Nike Skills Academy on Monday, a day earlier than expected, and took part in a late-afternoon workout as the league awaits a decision on where he will play next season. James was not expected until Tuesday at the camp, which features some of the nation’s top college and high school players working out in James’ hometown of Akron, Ohio.

Hornets star Chris Paul looked on as James ran drills and played 5-on-5 games for two hours. Before leaving the gym, James declined comment to a reporter.

James is not expected to announce his plans until after the conclusion of the camp Wednesday. Thursday is the first day teams can officially sign free agents.

While the Celtics reportedly have shown interest in veteran center Shaquille O’Neal, he also is considering a two-year offer from the Hawks that starts at the mid-level exception of $5.8 million, according to AOL FanHouse. The Hawks, who agreed to a max contract with Joe Johnson over the weekend, are in need of a center.

“I think he wants to see how everything shakes out with all the free agents, but he’s seriously considering Atlanta’s offer,” the story quotes a source. “He wants to play two more years, and he wants it to be with a contender. He thinks he can help them become a serious one.”

If the Celtics are interested in Knicks forward David Lee ‘€” reportedly, they contacted him on Thursday, the first day free agents could be courted ‘€” they might want to act quickly. The New York Post is reporting that the Knicks have been offered Warriors guard Monta Ellis and Timberwolves big man Al Jefferson in separate sign-and-trade scenarios, and there is some speculation of a three-way trade, sending Lee to Minnesota, Jefferson to Golden State and Ellis to New York.

Lee met with the Timberwolves for nine hours on Saturday, after conferring with the Bulls and Heat the day before. The 2010 All-Star becomes expendable in New York assuming the Knicks are able to lure Amare’ Stoudemire to Madison Square Garden. Stoudemire spent Sunday in New York, capping his day there with a party at the home of Knicks owner James Dolan.

The New York Post also has more about LeBron James‘ second meeting with the Knicks on Saturday.

Celtics draft picks Avery Bradley and Luke Harangody were introduced to the media at a press conference at the Celtics training facility in Waltham Friday. Celtics president of basketball operations Danny Ainge indicated that Bradley will have arthroscopic surgery on his ankle that will knock him out of summer league action, although the guard is expected to be ready to return in August and participate in training camp.

‘€œRight now, I’m just looking to get back and get ready so I can start training camp,’€ said Bradley, who will wear a zero on his Celtics jersey.

Harangody, who is going with No. 55, is ready to prove himself all over again. “I feel like I paid my dues in college,” he said. “I wasn’€™t good enough to get into the first round, but I feel like I just have to start all over again and just do the same thing as when I came to college because I wasn’€™t a big name then.”
