LOS ANGELES -- LeBron James' next NBA chapter will be set
on the West Coast.
James will be playing for the Los Angeles Lakers on a four-
year, $153.3 million contract. James will try to bring the storied
franchise another championship.
The announcement was made through his agency, Klutch Sports
Group, which announced the deal as $154 million.
ESPN's Brian Windhorst reports that the fourth year is a
player option. It's the longest deal James has signed since
inking a six-year deal with the Heat in 2010. His previous three
deals were three years or shorter.
James leaves his hometown team as a free agent for the second
time in his career. Four years ago, James had stated his
intention to finish his career with the Cleveland Cavaliers.
Whether the four-time MVP and 14-time All Star does that or
not, he certainly left his mark on his city.
James thanked his home area in an Instagram story. He wrote
in text overlaying a photo from the Cavaliers' 2016 NBA title
victory parade, "Thank you Northeast Ohio for an incredible 4
seasons. This will always be home."
He delivered the first championship to the sports-obsessed city
in 52 years and did so with storybook gusto, helping the
Cavaliers become the first team in NBA Finals history to rally
from a 3-1 series deficit to win it all. The team he took down,
the Golden State Warriors, had the best regular-season record
in league history, at 73-9. James leaves the franchise as its
leader in nearly every major statistical category: games played,
points, rebounds, assists and steals.
If 2017-18 was his final act in Cleveland, what a show he put
on, playing in all 82 games for the first time in his 15-year
career and capping it off with a postseason performance as
dominant as any playoff run James has ever been part of.
James will become the first player in NBA history to lead a
postseason in scoring and switch teams the following offseason.
He'll join the illustrious list of NBA legends to play for the
Lakers, some of whom have already welcomed James to the
family.
NBA players past and present reacted on Twitter, too.
James' agent called Lakers president of basketball operations
Magic Johnson minutes before he sent the announcement tweet,
a source told ESPN's Ramona Shelburne. Then James called Koby
Altman as soon as he got off the phone with Johnson.
Then they hit send.
The Lakers, after failing to get a meeting with free-agent
target Paul George prior to George's announcement that he
would re-sign with the Oklahoma City Thunder, have secured
free agency's most coveted player.
In the franchise's biggest free splash since Shaquille O'Neal
joined L.A. in the summer of 1996, Johnson and GM Rob Pelinka
have delivered a major piece to the plan they plotted when they
joined the Lakers in February 2017. Johnson took the job largely
to restore the franchise's glorious past and recruit elite
superstars to Los Angeles -- something the franchise had
struggled with in recent years. James joins the league's
second-youngest team when weighted by playing time last
season. The Lakers have an up-and-coming young core of
Brandon Ingram, Lonzo Ball, Kyle Kuzma and Josh Hart.
The Lakers also agreed to a one-year, $12 million deal with
Kentavious Caldwell-Pope, a one-year, $4.5 million deal with
Lance Stephenson and a one-year minimum deal with JaVale
McGee, league sources told ESPN's Chris Haynes. Los Angeles
has restricted free agent Julius Randle to figure out. The team
signed first-round pick Moritz Wagner earlier on Sunday.
Which of the Lakers' young prospects remain to play alongside
James remains to be seen. The Lakers have been trying to
acquire Kawhi Leonard, who reportedly is unhappy with the San
Antonio Spurs and would prefer to play for the Lakers. The
Spurs would surely want as many prospects and assets as
possible from the Lakers in exchange for the two-time
defensive player of the year.
A source told Shelburne that the Lakers felt a sense of
urgency this week to find a co-star to play alongside James.

Magiging malaking hadlang daw si kawhi sa playoffs kung makaharap nila sabi ni coach pop kaya sa east nya ibibigay si kawhi. Spurs fan here. Hehe
