  • LeBron James agrees to sign with Los Angeles 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. The fourth year of the contract will come with a player option and marks the longest contract James has signed since signing a deal for six years with the Heat back in 2010.

While the Lakers missed out on Oklahoma City Thunder Paul George via free agency, they will hope to persuade Kawhi Leonard to join this summer or next.

LeBron's willingness to ink a multi-year contract with the Lakers speaks volumes about his comfort level playing for the Buss family, and president of basketball operations Magic Johnson.

The entire Cavaliers franchise thanks LeBron for that precious moment and for all of the excitement he delivered as he led our team to four straight NBA Finals appearances. McGee proved in Golden State he could be a serviceable backup big, and even start in spot moments.

There is a general feeling Brazil are yet to get out of first gear despite the fact they topped their group with seven points. The Mexican midfielder now plays for La Liga side Real Betis as of 2017 after a move from Dutch football club PSV Eindhoven.

Kevin Love is Cleveland's only major trade chip, assuming No. 8 overall pick Collin Sexton is off the table, and the Cavs aren't flush with pieces to dangle in return for valuable young players or draft picks. 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.

Unlike past free-agent decisions, James wasted no time in announcing his next move. We wish his kids, his wife Savannah, his mother Gloria, and LeBron himself nothing but the best in the years and decades ahead. Stephenson played in 82 games for the Pacers last season, averaging 9.2 points in 22.6 minutes per game.

The Cavs played 81 postseason games - one contest shy of an entire regular season - the last four years, winning 55 of them. He was a 10-time All-Star, a three-time All-Star MVP, two-time league MVP and, most memorably, the 2016 NBA Finals MVP.

For the second time in eight years, LeBron James is leaving Cleveland.
