LeBron James and Lakers agree to 4-year deal

LeBron James agrees to sign with Los Angeles Lakers

LeBron James agrees to sign with Los Angeles Lakers

And, as you could have guessed, the National Basketball Association community took to social media to express their joy, excitement, anger and pretty much any other emotion you could think of.

Fellow Laker Kyle Kuzma tweeted his welcome to Los Angeles. He isn't coming after the Lakers finagled Kawhi Leonard from San Antonio. One of general manager Koby Altman's most critical tasks will be deciding whether to retain or trade Kevin Love, who will make nearly $50 million the next two seasons. ESPN's Brian Windhorst's reported the Lakers are still the favorites to sign James in free agency. That's what Embiid thinks anyway, and he's probably not wrong given all the history that those two all time greats have with the Lakers franchise.

He previously played in Los Angeles with the Clippers in 2015-16. Furthermore, Bosh has also been spotted at the team facility multiple times throughout the offseason.

As things stand now, Smith's projections have the Lakers with $59.96 million of cap space for 2019.

James will now compete directly with Kevin Durant, Stephen Curry and the Warriors not only in the Western Conference, but in the Pacific Division.

Jose Pekerman has refused to entertain the prospect of seeing Colombia´s stuttering World Cup campaign end at the first hurdle. The Three Lions booked their place in the last 16 by defeating Tunisia and Panama in their opening two group matches.

And this is undoubtedly going to have further knock-on effects, especially when it comes to other top players heading to the Lakers.

James agreed to a four-year contract with the team worth $154 million, Klutch said. Just as he did in 2014, James is likely to sign a shorter contract that allows him to do this whole thing again in a few summers.

The Lakers have gone five seasons without reaching the NBA Playoffs.

He was the difference between annual title contention and residence in Eastern Conference purgatory, and it stands to reason his departure will send Cleveland back into rebuilding mode as the franchise deals with another changing of the guard.
