INDEPENDENCE, Ohio (AP) LeBron James can almost see from his backyard the latest billboard enticing him to sign as a free agent.

In response to other cities displaying signs hoping to land James, who can become a free agent this summer, a realtor in his hometown of Akron paid for a billboard with a message reminding the NBA star that he doesn't have to go anywhere.

The sign reads: "LeBron, there's no place like home. (hash)ThisIsHome." The billboard includes a photo of two ruby red Nike sneakers, a reference to the shoes worn by Dorothy in "The Wizard of Oz."
