LeBron James

According to report from ESPN NBA reporter Adrian Wojnarowski, LeBron James has agreed to a 4-year, $154 million deal to become a Los Angeles Laker.

Other reports confirming the deal began appearing within minutes of Wojnarowski’s tweet:

The original tweet from LeBron’s representation group, Klutch Sports Group, contained details of the deal:

Wojnarowski also confirmed that the Lakers might not be done when it comes to landing star players. Spurs star and California native Kawhi Leonard reportedly still wants to be a Laker:

According to Fox News, “The 33-year-old James, one of the greatest players in the NBA, is coming off a season in which he reached his eighth straight championship series. He is the first player to do so in half a century.

“The simple statement is a stark contrast to how James has handled his previous free agency decisions. In 2010, he announced he was going to the Miami Heat at the conclusion of a half-hour ESPN special. In 2014, James announced he was returning to his first NBA organization, the Cleveland Cavaliers, via an as-told-to article in Sports Illustrated.”
