LeBron James Signs 4-year $154 Million Deal with the LA Lakers!

Report Sixers meeting with Le Bron James in Los Angeles

Two years later, it was back to the Cavs. Shortly after James announced that he would be a Laker, the team made several reported additions to the roster, erasing nearly all of their available salary cap space. "The acquisition of LeBron James means that the Lakers are just a smidgen away from being real contenders". The deal comes not long after LeBron James said he would be signing with the Lakers.

Once James answered the question that had dominated the free agent picture for months, the Lakers began filling out the roster for next season, agreeing to one-year deals with swingman Lance Stephenson, guard Kentavious Caldwell-Pope and center JaVale McGee.

Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, the six-time National Basketball Association champion who was part of the Lakers dynasty during the 1980s, hopes that James' arrival will signal a change in fortunes. But Wojnarowski also tweeted on Sunday that Leonard truly wants to be a Laker.

ESPN's Chris Haynes reported Monday that the Lakers have a meeting scheduled with Tyreke Evans.

North Korea reportedly expands major missile plant
Nuclear officials could be "expected to proceed with business as usual until specific orders are issued from Pyongyang", it said. They are "only" reports but they are deemed accurate by respected North Korea watchers.

For 15 straight seasons, James has mesmerized and dazzled us with his greatness, playing at a higher level than virtually anyone in history while taking on a ridiculous nightly burden and never getting hurt.

How many championship rings does LeBron James have? Currently, the rule serves as a way to force players to either complete one year of college basketball in the United States, or travel overseas to play in an worldwide pro league for one season. Kawhi Leonard is obviously included due to the spree of trade rumors that have come out around him and the Lakers. Acquiring him could arguably give Philadelphia the best team in the East. He returned home to the Cavaliers the next season and ended a championship drought for Cleveland with the National Basketball Association title in 2016.

But switching conferences for the league's best player changes things.

However, LeBron could soon be joined in L.A.by Spurs forward Kawhi Leonard, who has publicly expressed his desire to be traded to the Lakers after his relationship with San Antonio soured beyond fix. In the West, James' move to the Lakers has many fans questioning how the team will match up against the defending champion Golden State Warriors.
