LeBron James is to join the Los Angeles Lakers in a four-year $154 million deal, his agents said Sunday, ending months of frenzied speculation about the National Basketball Association superstar's next career move. He averaged 9.2 points, 5.2 rebounds and 2.9 assists a game for IN last season, his first campaign without missing a game.

Lonzo Ball, 22-year-old Kyle Kuzma and 23-year-Josh Hart.

Lakers LeBron Jerseys won't ship until the deal is signed, which could happen as early as noon on Friday. A fifth, first-rounder Moe Wagner, will be on hand, too.

The Lakers are in position to treat the 2018-19 season as a lengthy audition for those seeking long-term employment as a James teammate. Leonard wants to be traded to the Lakers. He is set to sign a four-year maximum contract worth $154 million.

"With LeBron officially agreeing to sign with the Lakers, it'll be fascinating to monitor what type of leverage the Spurs can create for Kawhi Leonard, who still desires to play for the Lakers, according to multiple league sources-all of whom say offers to the Spurs have been underwhelming". If that changes, the Lakers will have to part with some number of the group of youngsters, a price the team will be willing to pay.

James did return in 2014 and led the Cavs to the 2016 NBA title, ending a 52-year sports championship drought for Cleveland, before departing for the Lakers in the wake of four consecutive NBA Finals appearances for Cleveland.

"As people, you've got to help your brothers do well".

That's the method behind what seems to be some Lakers madness. The Lakers face the challenge of beating the reigning champions, the Golden State Warriors.

On the other hand, all three players have reportedly agreed to sign for just one year each and on cheap deals at that, particularly in the cases of Stephenson and McGee, so Los Angeles hasn't made major investments and is keeping roster flexibility for next summer's free agent crop. But in the long term, the method could pay off.
