CLEVELAND (AP) - LeBron James has come and gone.

The NBA’s marquee free agent showed at his basketball camp Thursday and then left, hours before he was to announce in Greenwich, Conn., where he’ll play next season.

James arrived in midafternoon with former teammate Damon Jones. James wore a T-shirt and shorts and took a seat to watch high school stars play at Cleveland State University.

He stayed a little more than an hour before heading off in a white Bentley, destination unknown. He did not speak to a reporter, but said “thank you” to some coaches in the stands he knew and who wished him luck.

Some of college basketball’s top coaches were at the King City Classic, part of James’ Nike-sponsored camp. Among them were Duke’s Mike Krzyzewski, North Carolina’s Roy Williams, West Virginia’s Bob Huggins and Syracuse’s Jim Boeheim.

There is rampant speculation James is considering Miami to join Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh. Boeheim says it might not matter because he doesn’t think any team is going to beat the Lakers.
