LeBron agrees to four-year deal with Lakers

LeBron agrees to four-year deal with Lakers

Rumors of James' interest in joining the Lakers had ramped up over the last season as his former team, the Cleveland Cavaliers, struggled to make the NBA Finals with a below-average cast around the 14-time All-Star. James will not attend the meeting, according to Wojnarowski.

James made four straight Finals with the Cavaliers, winning a championship over the Warriors in 2016. After the James signing, the Lakers' odds improve to 7/2. Eastern Time on Sunday morning, Cavaliers general manager Koby Altman was on the phone with LeBron James and his agent, Rich Paul, sources told ESPN. He already owns two homes in Southern California and has a film production company. He returned to Cleveland following the 2014 season. With his destination unclear, the Lakers would likely gravitate toward a more aggressive move to assemble a team that can take on the Golden State Warriors. The preference of Kawhi Leonard is to play with the Lakers, but James signing a four-year deal won't put any pressure on Johnson and Pelinka to give up the farm to get the San Antonio Spurs star now. Former UCLA hoopster Trevor Ariza also left his Houston Rockets for the Phoenix Suns, signing a one year deal. Remember: James' agent met with the Cavaliers in 2014 without James, and he ultiamately chose to leave the Heat to return to Cleveland.

Speculation was rampant that George opting to remain in Oklahoma City at the start of free agency at midnight Sunday might have soured James on the Lakers.

Fans will be waiting to see who comes out on top between Modric, and Christian Eriksen , Denmark's standout player. A low scoring, methodically played match will play to Denmark's advantage.

The 33-year-old forward leaves the Cleveland Cavaliers to join an iconic franchise that has won 16 National Basketball Association titles but is rebuilding after posting a losing record for five consecutive seasons.

It only gets more wild from there though as a fan posted video appeared to show James' vehicle, closely tailed by a black van carrying his luggage.
