Bron: James agrees to 4-year contract with Lakers

LeBron James agrees to sign with Los Angeles Lakers

LeBron James agrees to sign with Los Angeles Lakers

While this is not quite what most people expected when they assumed LeBron would put together a superteam in L.A., the Lakers are at the very least going to be the most interesting team in the National Basketball Association next season.

"Thank you Northeast Ohio for an incredible four seasons", James wrote on his Instagram story.

The endorsement of Bryant will come as a massive boost to James.

Despite Paul George not filling in as the team's second max-contract slot due to his decision to re-sign with the Oklahoma City Thunder, the Lakers have options with James committing to a long-term deal.

Update 2: Because the Lakers have signed Caldwell-Pope to a one-year, $12 million deal, they might be too cash strapped to sign Cousins. Gilbert opened his comments by referring to Cleveland's 2016 title as "a championship that united generations of Clevelanders, both living and passed".

James had one of his best seasons in 2017-18, playing all 82 games for the first time and averaging 27.5 points, 8.6 rebounds and 9.1 assists, while making 54.2% of his shots and 36.7% of his 3-point attempts. "Nothing but appreciation and gratitude for everything you put into every moment you spent in a Cavaliers uniform".

The Knicks and Clippers were also mentioned as possible destinations but in the end, James opted for Los Angeles, who are run by former Lakers great Magic Johnson. While in Los Angeles following a family vacation, he spoke to Cavs general manager Koby Altman moments after free agency opened on Sunday, and it appears that was more a courtesy than a chance for Cleveland to make one last pitch. "I don't think LeBron is that type of parent, I think he wants to be around his son a lot and see his son play a lot".

James gave Cleveland something to remember in his final season. The best the two teams can do is meet in the Western Conference Finals.

The Lakers last won a championship in 2010.
