National Basketball Association superstar LeBron James signs with LA Lakers

Cleveland Cavaliers' Le Bron James walks to the bench during the first half of Game 4 of basketball's NBA Finals against the Golden State Warriors in Cleveland. Two people familiar with the decision say Ja

LeBron James has agreed to a four-year contract worth more than $150 million with the Los Angeles Lakers, Klutch Sports Group announced on Sunday.

James, whose Cavaliers were swept by the Golden State Warriors in the 2018 NBA Finals, opted out of his contract in June, three weeks after the season ended.

James, 33, has shown little sign of slowing down despite accumulating thousands of regular season and playoff minutes.

LeBron James is taking his talents to Hollywood. Cleveland.com's Joe Vardon reported that James' mind would not be made up with or without Leonard landing with the Lakers.

James, who has a home and production company in Los Angeles, joins a team with plenty of money to spend under the National Basketball Association salary cap and a desire to rebuild into a championship team after years of struggles.

James isn't expected to attend the meeting, which is the first significant chance for the 76ers to make case a free-agent case to James, league sources said. Former UCLA hoopster Trevor Ariza also left his Houston Rockets for the Phoenix Suns, signing a one year deal.

This is the third time in eight years that James has changed teams via free agency.

Julius Randle remains a restricted free agent who the Lakers have a big decision on. Paul George, another Southern California native, re-signed with the Oklahoma City Thunder after being traded there last summer and growing to like the team.

James averaged 27.5 points, 8.6 rebounds, 9.1 assists and 1.4 steals and shot 54.2 percent from the field this past season. Doing so would help James compete with the Warriors and other Western conference behemoths, something he has struggled to do since winning the 2016 Finals. James has never played with a big exactly like Cousins-a superior ball handler in the open court to Bosh and Love.
