Lance Stephenson agrees to join Los Angeles Lakers on one-year deal

Gary A. Vasquez-USA TODAY Sports

Basketball sensation LeBron James changed sides and has joined hands with the Los Angeles Lakers locking a four-year deal worth $154 million.

"Thank you Northeast Ohio for an incredible 4 seasons". Currently, the rule serves as a way to force players to either complete one year of college basketball in the United States, or travel overseas to play in an worldwide pro league for one season. Fanatics initially listed the jerseys with a No. 00 placeholder, but has since updated the listing with James' traditional No. 23 amid reports that he intends to keep the number.

James has been linked to multiple teams in free agency, most notably the Los Angeles Lakers and 76ers.

It obviously won't be as easy for him in Los Angeles as it was in Golden State, but he won't be playing a great deal of minutes unless the Lakers fail to add another big man to the mix.

While it's anyone's guess, right now it appears that James' final decision could be between going to the Lakers or staying with the Cavaliers.

Trump backs off claim of convicing Saudi Arabia to boost oil production
But destabilizing OPEC could throw global oil markets into even greater turmoil than they've seen since Trump's election. But he said it's unlikely that decrease could sustain itself as demand spikes, leading prices to rise by wintertime.

The Los Angeles Lakers waived center Thomas Bryant as the start of free agency neared.

James isn't expected to drag his choice out over several days.

The 33-year-old forward leaves the Cavaliers to join an iconic franchise that has won 16 National Basketball Association titles but is rebuilding after posting a losing record for five consecutive seasons.

Two years later, it was back to the Cavs.

"This might be bad for Cleveland, bad for the Eastern Conference, and, if Kawhi arrives behind James, bad for competitive balance".

Cavani fires Uruguay into last eight as Ronaldo's World Cup dream ends
Pepe rose from a corner to nod Portugal level after the break, but just seven minutes later Cavani scored again to settle the tie. Ronaldo ran in front of Pepe and drew the attention of both Gimenez and Godin.

"They had too much in common for that not to happen".

Just today, Russian Federation knocked off Spain, LeBron James announced his intentions to sign with Los Angeles Lakers and now, LeBron's long-time playoff foil Lance Stephenson is following him to Hollywood.

Those odds may go down since George signed with the Thunder.

On Friday, James formally became a free agent when he informed the Cavs he would not exercise his $35.6 million contract option for next season, making him an unrestricted free agent and the prize catch in the 2018 class.

Moghavem pointed out the Lakers' decades-old tradition of "poaching" franchise players - bringing in Wilt Chamberlain from Philadelphia, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar from Milwaukee, Shaquille O'Neal from Orlando and now James from Cleveland.
