decision was announced and he will be a member of the Lakers.


He won't come at almost the same price as other top trade targets such as Kawhi Leonard, and given the Cavs poor cap situation, the Bulls would have a ton of leverage in any trade talks.

According to The Athletic's Jason Lloyd, James knows the Lakers don't have a shot at competing for a championship this year and wants to be patient and help the team grow. They pulled off the surprise of the summer: a one-year, $5.3 million bargain deal with free agent DeMarcus Cousins. "#TheKingIsHere", point guard Ball tweeted after the news broke. Though the agreement wasn't entirely surprising, wherever James plays, he impacts the entire league. While many assumed that Paul George was going to be coming to Los Angeles, he ended up staying with the Oklahoma City Thunder.

Another reason for James's willingness to sign a long-term deal with the Lakers is the team's proximity to Hollywood.


That said, Leonard isn't the Lakers' only possible target.

That would be a hefty price to pay, particularly as the Lakers would have to try and fill out their rosters around LeBron and Leonard. Those subsequent moves raise one important question: LeBron is aware the Lakers did that, right? "He clashed with Kobe Bryant, voiced frustration with coach Mike D'Antoni, and seemingly burned his bridges after the season was over by leaving to sign with the Houston Rockets despite the Lakers' impassioned "#StayD12" campaign.
