Lebron James is going to be a Laker
James announced that he has decided to play for the Lakers on a four-year deal worth $154 million, with a short, subdued news release sent out on the Twitter account belonging to Klutch Sports.
James’ decision came on the first day of free agency, just 20 hours after the market officially opened. In that time, his agent, Rich Paul, had conversations with the Cleveland Cavaliers and reportedly a meeting with the Philadelphia 76ers. James comes to Los Angeles after four years with the Cleveland Cavaliers, during which time he won one championship and went to four NBA Finals.
His decision comes a day after Paul George decided to re-sign with the Oklahoma City Thunder without taking a meeting with the Lakers, the team he grew up rooting for.
