The LeBronathon drags on.

FREE AGENCY BUZZ

The greatest free-agent class in NBA history is shaking up the league. Follow all the latest news and rumors.

Still keeping his plans a closely guarded secret, LeBron James arrived at his summer camp Tuesday more than four hours after he was scheduled to appear. His tardiness only renewed speculation about where the NBA's marquee free agent will continue his career, a move that has fans, franchises and several cities on edge.

Driving a customized Dodge silver pickup truck, James pulled into the parking area next to Rhodes Arena at 3:15 p.m., accompanied by former Cleveland teammate Damon Jones. Wearing a white Nike T-shirt and orange shorts, James did not address the media or appear to be ready to work out.

He entered the building and walked onto the floor while some of the nation's top college players were finishing up their second workout on Day 2 of the LeBron James Skills Academy. The two-time MVP sat on a sideline table before moving to a courtside chair. Shortly after he arrived, his two young sons, LeBron Jr. and Bryce, came in with former high school teammates Dru Joyce III and Romeo Travis.

James' only message came on his new Twitter account, which quickly rocketed to 100,000 followers.

"Hello World, the Real King James is in the Building,'' it read, before going on to credit New Orleans Hornets guard Chris Paul for pushing him to open an account on the social networking site.

On Monday, James made a surprise appearance at the first day of his camp with Paul and played a few full-court games against the college kids.

As he goes about his business, the league awaits word on what he'll do next.

James met with six teams last week, including the Cavaliers and Chicago Bulls, who are believed to be the front-runners to sign him. Other teams could be positioning themselves to make another run after making their initial presentations.

While James is the star attraction in this summer's stacked free-agent class, other free agents have either stayed home or found a new one. On Monday, Amare Stoudemire agreed to a five-year deal with the New York Knicks and said he would continue to recruit James to join him.

Like James, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh have remained noncommittal about where they'll sign.
