LeBron James Officially Signs With The Lakers

It's a big day for the Los Angeles Lakers as LeBron James signed his 4-year $154-million contract with the purple and gold.

The Lakers targeted James from the outset of their rebuilding efforts, after Johnson and Pelinka were hired in March 2017 to restore the franchise to its elite status in the National Basketball Association.

If that ever was a possibility, it's now officially over.

Stephenson and James competed fiercely in the Eastern Conference over the years, with Stephenson applying tough defence and creative tactics to the four-time NBA Most Valuable Player.

Yet disputes regarding compensation and the sacking of current Blues boss Antonio Conte is slowing that managerial change down.

In Embiid, Simmons, Dario Saric and Markelle Fultz the Sixers have arguably the most exciting core of young players in the league, but that wasn't enough to convince LeBron. The Lakers are excited to have a team-mate who has gone nine times to the NBA Finals. "It's a huge step closer to returning the Lakers to the playoffs and to the NBA Finals", Johnson added.

"This is a historic moment for the Lakers, and we could not feel more grateful and honoured", he said. If you love sports, know digital sales, and can throw your weight behind an aggressive commission based opportunity than we would love to talk to you. "We will continue forward and do everything necessary to achieve that shared obsession of bringing the No. 17 pennant to the best fans in the world - the Lakers Nation".

So much for cold feet. James won two titles with the Miami Heat and one with the Cavaliers.

JaVale McGee, Lance Stephenson, Rajon Rondo and Kentavious Coldwell-Pope all penned one-year deals with the Lakers in the following days - but speaking to ESPN last night, former Brooklyn Nets assistant general manager Bobby Marks warned the team were far from the finished article.

The Lakers did not wish to speak publicly about their deal with James until Monday, however.

James is not expected to attend, however, and is not expected to speak publicly about his decision until a charity event in OH later this month.

James, 33, has averaged 27.2 points, 7.4 rebounds and 7.2 assists per game in 1,143 career contests.
