James is expected to decline his $35.6-million player option for next season, allowing him to lock up over $200 million in long-term salary if he chooses. It's unclear whether Hart's offer of $40 could contravene the league's collective bargaining agreement.
"I don't see him leaving," Hart added. "Other people think he will ... I don't see him going nowhere."
