LeBron’s agent: LeBron James signs 4-year, $154 million contract with Lakers

James shocked the National Basketball Association world in 2010 when he left the Cavaliers for the Miami Heat, only to return to Cleveland in 2014 after winning two championships.

James has played the last four years in Cleveland.

The Lakers potentially signing Bosh is intriguing, to say the least. The franchise has a pair of young studs in Joel Embiid and Ben Simmons, the relatively easy ability to create max cap space and the aggressive mentality to continue chasing a Kawhi Leonard trade.

CBSSports.com's projections had the Lakers as a 29-win team before the signing was announced. The pair has had a history of notable exchanges, most memorably in the 2014 playoffs, when Stephenson was with the Pacers and James played for the Heat.

"If everybody looks at it with a son at that age, you don't want to be away from him during that period of time", Gary Payton noted earlier in the year. James added: "So I don't have an answer for you right now as far as that". James isn't coming with Paul George, who is staying in Oklahoma City.

LeBron is heading to LA.

It is predicted a wave of fans will dash to Russian Federation ahead of England's last group game with Belgium on Thursday in Kalinigrad.

It looks like LeBron James was the domino that needed to fall for the rest of the National Basketball Association to get in on the action of the summer.

While Julius Randle may be planning to leave the Los Angeles Lakers, the market may make another decision for him. The best the two teams can do is meet in the Western Conference Finals. As the East rejoices and the Boston/Philadelphia rivalry takes center stage again, James will have a hard time getting to the Finals now.

There's so much time before LeBron steps foot on the Staples Center floor for his first game as a Laker.

The team didn't wait long to announce their next move.

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.

James isn't planning any more comments and there won't be a welcoming press conference or celebration in Los Angeles, a person familiar with his plans said Sunday night on the condition of anonymity.
