LeBron James is leaving Cavs to sign four-year deal with Lakers

LeBron James

The news came just hours after LeBron James agreed to sign a four-year, $154 million deal with the Lakers, as Klutch Sports Group announced on Twitter.

James will enter a new phase of his career, his name joining some of the game's greats that have worn a Laker uniform including, Jerry West, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Magic Johnson, Shaquille O'Neal and Kobe Bryant.

So how was the deal consummated?

James isn't expected to attend the meeting, which is the first significant chance for the 76ers to make a free-agent pitch to James, league sources said.

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. But the Lakers will instantly rise with James, a three-time champion who after being swept by the Warriors in this year's NBA Finals said he is still driven and very much in "championship mode".

Twitter reacts to LeBron James trying to team up with Kevin Durant
James Harden finally got his MVP award on Monday night at the 2018 NBA Awards. I don't know what Kevin Durant's response to it was.

The Cavs could have significant salary-cap space in 2019-20, depending on what they do with Love, Tristan Thompson (who will make $18.5 million that season), Jordan Clarkson ($13.4 million), J.R. Smith and Kyle Korver.

Unlike past free-agent decisions, James wasted no time in announcing his next move.

Only on this occasion James leaves two years after delivering the city's first championship in more than 52 years, and with Cavs fans wishing him well and thanking him for an incredible run. He played in all 82 regular-season games and then somehow carried a team that underwent several transformations to a fourth straight conference title and matchup against the Warriors.

So we rounded up some of the best ones. The two-time National Basketball Association champion comes over from the Warriors on a one-year deal for the veteran minimum. Originally signed by the Cavaliers in 2003, James, who grew up in Akron, left Cleveland in 2010 to join the Miami Heat and led them to four consecutive NBA Finals, winning in 2012 and 2013. "This will always be home".
