Lakers agree deals with trio of free agents after LeBron James capture

Lakers agree deals with trio of free agents after LeBron James capture

In a short statement, he said on Instagram: "Thank you Northeast Ohio for an incredible four seasons". However, there should be plenty of space with the Lakers to replicate some of these numbers.

James will make $25.65 million next season.

"The one thing that I've always done is consider my family, understanding especially where my boys are at this point in their age", James announced after the Cavaliers' June 8 loss. LeBron James chose to leave the Cavaliers in free agency this offseason, which has altered the direction that the Cavaliers are looking to go. The four-time MVP will join the Los Angeles Lakers next season.

James and the Cavaliers have been beaten in three out of four NBA Finals against the Warriors since 2015.

But Johnson was apparently able to say exactly what James needed to hear to convince him Los Angeles is the right fit for him to begin the next phase of his career.

The Lakers are reportedly hoping to acquire another star or two to play alongside James. He knows what he wants and he's very familiar with the Cavaliers after leading them to four straight NBA Finals since returning as a free agent in 2014 following four seasons in Miami.

It's hard to read too much into this, as far as where James may land.

"This might be bad for Cleveland, bad for the Eastern Conference, and, if Kawhi arrives behind James, bad for competitive balance".

Just today, Russian Federation knocked off Spain, LeBron James announced his intentions to sign with Los Angeles Lakers and now, LeBron's long-time playoff foil Lance Stephenson is following him to Hollywood.

By declining his option, James positioned himself to be able to choose where he'll play next, and Cleveland remains a strong possibility, even though he declined his option for next season.

Many have already wondered what the NBA Finals might look like without James taking on the Warriors every year.

James follows basketball legends such as Kobe Bryant and Shaquille O'Neal in wearing the famous Lakers uniform.
