Philadelphia 76ers: 3 positive factors regarding LeBron James joining Lakers

03 July, 2018, 11:25 | Author: Carla Brady
  • LeBron James agrees four year, $154 million deal with LA Lakers

Paul informed the Cavs on Friday morning that the four-time MVP would not opt in to the final year of his contract; James was scheduled to make $35.6 million in 2018-19. "He wants to build a contender that lasts and believes the Lakers possess the recruiters, the assets and the salary cap space to do it".

How much is LeBron James's net worth?

The meeting occurred after James' agent reportedly had conversations with the Cavaliers.

After president of basketball operations Magic Johnson visited James at one of his Los Angeles residences on Saturday night for three hours once the league's free agency period opened, James was willing to grant the franchise that time.

The Lakers rumors are full steam ahead now that they landed LeBron James to a 4 year $154 million deal.

Chris Bosh Joining The Lakers?

Who is the highest-paid player in the National Basketball Association?

- James finished with six 30-point triple-doubles in 2017-18, his most in a single season.

It wasn't long before the city of Los Angeles, along with many favorite celebrities, started celebrating on social media to welcome James, 33, to the city and the Lakers.

His deal contains a player option for the 2021-22 season that ensures he will be a Laker for at least three seasons before he can return to free agency. That's what happened when the team decided not to trade for George a year ago.

With LeBron now in the West, it doesn't matter who else is on his team, because the entire Western Conference will be a bloodbath. Would Leonard leave a 76ers' team that just made the NBA Finals for a Lakers' team that might get bounced in the second round of the 2019 playoffs? There's no doubting that. His farewell letter from Monday, July 2 thanked James for ending the 52-year championship drought in Cleveland, and uniting "generations of Clevelanders, both living and passed" in the process. His streak of consecutive NBA Finals appearances is in serious jeopardy.

James led the Cavaliers to a NBA Championship in 2016, when they upset the Warriors and shocked the world after being down 3-1 in the best of seven series. Playing alongside another star like Leonard would give him a fighting chance.
