LeBron James officially signs with the Lakers

LeBron James has signed with the Lakers. He wanted to make the process go through quickly this time, so he agreed to a four-year, $154 million contract early in free agency. His agency group, Klutch Sports, tweeted out James’ agreement with Los Angeles via a press statement. And just over a week later, it’s official.

The key part of this deal could be that it’s a long-term contract. For the past few seasons, James has been signing one-plus-one deals to take advantage of the rising salary cap and maintain leverage. However, he’s giving the Lakers a pretty long time to build a winning a team around him and get the most out of his 30s.

This signing is also a huge win for Magic Johnson, Rob Pelinka and Jeanie Buss. That trio took over Los Angeles by forcing out former team president Jim Buss and former general manager Mitch Kupchak because they failed to bring stars to the Lakers. Within a couple of years, the Lakers were able to make themselves appealing enough for James sign with them. That alone has made their takeover a success.

James played in all 82 games last season, tallying a team-high 27.5 points (third in the NBA), a career-high-tying 8.6 rebounds and a career-high 9.1 assists (second in the NBA), while shooting 54.2 percent from the field. He finished the season with a league-high 2,251 total points scored and became the first player in NBA history to accumulate at least 30,000 career points, 8,000 rebounds and 8,000 assists. In addition, the 15-year NBA veteran currently holds the longest-ever double-digit scoring streak at 873 games.
