Signing day arrived Thursday in the NBA, though the biggest free agents didn’t rush to grab their pens.
Carmelo Anthony, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh might be waiting on LeBron James — isn’t everybody? — before making their decisions.
Miami and Cleveland waited anxiously — as did fans lining up outside James’s Akron, Ohio, home, even while he was in Las Vegas at his basketball camp. Wade was there, too.

The Cavs did officially sign star guard Kyrie Irving to a five-year, $90 million contract.
