LeBron speaks with Cavs as free agency opens

LeBron speaks with Cavs as free agency opens

LeBron James also announced Sunday he was signing with the Lakers.

James reportedly agreed to a four-year, $154 million deal with the team. 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.

However he had endured frustration with the Cleveland Cavaliers, culminating in this season's clean sweep defeat to the Golden State Warriors in last month's National Basketball Association finals. ESPN's Brian Windhorst's reported the Lakers are still the favorites to sign James in free agency.

The Lakers are heard to be offering only one-year deals to maximize their cap space for the summer of 2019. According to Real GM's Keith Smith, the Lakers are projected to have $46.82 million in room.

Now, Stephenson will try to prove he can fit in with a team other than the Pacers. His deal doesn't include a no-trade clause but an opt-out after the third year.

With Oklahoma City securing Paul George, the reigning Warriors still intact, the Houston Rockets nipping at the champions' heels, and King James ruling the City of Angels, the Western Conference - already the dominant of the two - just got stronger. James spent his first seven seasons with the Cleveland Cavaliers, his next four seasons with the Miami Heat, and his last four seasons back at home with Cleveland.


LeBron is heading to LA.

James alone can change a conference - no non-LeBron team has made the Finals in the Eastern Conference since 2010.

Medium Large is looking to add motivated individuals with big dreams and a big appetite for success to our LakersNation.com direct sales team based in Los Angeles or Orange County. As the East rejoices and the Boston/Philadelphia rivalry takes center stage again, James will have a hard time getting to the Finals now.

This is the second time James has departed from Cleveland.

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

He previously played in Los Angeles with the Clippers in 2015-16.
