LeBron did actually get number three this summer

LeBron James might not have to make room in his trophy case following the season, but he'll have to find some more room somewhere in his 12,000 square foot Miami mansion for a new addition.

And some room for the diapers too. 

The two-time NBA Finals MVP and his wife Savannah are expecting a baby girl.

The James gang already features the couple's two sons, LeBron, Jr. and Bryce who were both born while LeBron was with the Cleveland Cavaliers.

The news of the newest James family member came out at Miami Heat team president Pat Riley's exit press conference.

In between talking about how the roster might be restructured next season, and subtlety putting the onus on the big three, Riley let the baby news slip.

"Savannah now is going to have a little baby girl to join her in the fight against the two boys and LeBron, which she needs."

James did say in his exit press conference earlier in the week that his focus in the immediate future will be taking a vacation with his family, and clearing his head before he makes any decision about weather to opt out of his current contract with the Heat that would pay him $42.7 million over the next three seasons.

Riley also said at his pres conference today that he was going to wait 10 days before contacting James or the other two Miami Heat all-stars.

This coincides with the June 29 deadline for the big three to inform the Heat weather they will all remain on their current contracts. 

If James, Bosh, or Wade were to opt-out, Miami would have considerable financial flexibility, with over $50 million in cap space to re-sign them, and fill out the roster with, potentially, some more talented players to continue making deep playoff runs.

Free agency opens on July 1, and players can then begin officially talking to free agents who weren't on their roster last season. 

Teams and players can also agree to deals, but cannot officially sign until July 10, following the July moratorium, which is when the league takes inventory of its finances, and officially sets the salary cap and luxury tax levels for next season. 

Those numbers have been projected to jump to a cap of $63.2 million with a luxury tax number of $77 million.
