Miami Heat star LeBron James has insisted that he will not think about his future until June 2014, reports ESPN. 

By then, James would have completed his fourth season of his six year contract which means he will get the chance to test free agency. 

However, with James' mind currently fixed on helping the Heat succeed this season, he will not discuss his future.

The Heat will be hoping their prize asset decides to snub the chance of free agency and instead commits to a new long-term deal with the franchise.

And, speaking in the Heat's annual presentation day, the four time league Most Valuable Player told reporters: "You guys have to ask the questions.

"But I'm not going to address it. Once we get to that point [in June], then I'll address it. But I don't think it's appropriate right now.

"My concern is putting our team in a position to win another championship. That's my only goal, that's my only mind frame right now."

"I'll tell you right now how I'll handle it."

James believes he owes it to the Heat to concentrate on the immediate future and not get roped into discussions of his long-term plan. 

James continued by saying: "For me, being a leader of this team, I owe it to this organization, I owe it to my teammates to really not get involved and not talk about it."

But, while James continues to ignore questions over his long-term plan, speculation will continue to grow over his future.
