LeBron agrees to deal with Lakers

LeBron James agrees to 4-year contract with Lakers

Zlatan Ibrahimovic knows he will have to share the Los Angeles limelight after LeBron James confirmed that he will be joining the L.A. Lakers.

Klutch Sports, James' Cleveland-based agency, announced that the world's best player had agreed to a four-year, $154 million maximum contract with the Lakers.

So how was the deal consummated? 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. One of general manager Koby Altman's most critical tasks will be deciding whether to retain or trade Kevin Love, who will make nearly $50 million the next two seasons.

Los Angeles also provides another window of opportunity for James.

James' decision will catapult the Lakers up the title-contending ranks. McGee has played the past two years for the Golden State Warriors. San Antonio isn't going to give him away at a discount, but the Lakers hold some leverage considering Leonard will be an unrestricted free agent anyway in 2019.

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

The general assumption was that Lebron would be headed to the City of Angels naturally to look toward another championship-winning era and to keep his family together as his 13-year old son is slated to play with the Sierra Canyon High School basketball squad.

James had one of his best seasons in 2017-18, playing all 82 games for the first time and averaging 27.5 points, 8.6 rebounds and 9.1 assists, while making 54.2% of his shots and 36.7% of his 3-point attempts.

LeBron took to Instagram after the news was revealed to thank Northeast Ohio for "an incredible 4 seasons".

That year, his iconic block on Andre Iguodala was one of the defining moments of the Cavs' Game 7 win over the Warriors.

James chose to become a free agent after his second stint with the Cleveland Cavaliers in which he made good on his promise to bring a championship title to what is essentially his home town, having grown up in Akron, Ohio.
