LeBron James to join Los Angeles Lakers in $154m deal

LeBron James is to join the Los Angeles Lakers in a four-year deal worth $154m (£116m), his camp has announced.

The Lakers may still be pursuing Leonard, but from the sounds of it, they won't compromise the future for him, especially when Leonard reportedly wants to sign with the Lakers as a free agent in 2019.

Love, 29, is a five-time All-Star, and was a key member of the Cavs teams that appeared in four-consecutive NBA Finals.

Besides tonight's defeat against Russian Federation , they had lost to Belgium in 1986 and South Korea in 2002, both in the quarterfinals.

Unlike eight years ago when James' announcement that he was joining the Miami Heat was a televised affair, Sunday's news was posted by his agency Klutch Sports via Twitter.

The sunny climes of California also hold much allure for James' high school sweetheart, business owner and interior designer Brinson, who according to one Bleacher Report story, has voiced her desire to live in L.A. full-time.

His move from the Cleveland Cavaliers ends months of speculation.

This is the second time the enormous image of James will be removed.

On Sunday night, shortly after news of LeBron's deal with the Lakers broke, ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski confirmed Leonard wanted to join the three-time National Basketball Association champion in his hometown. When Johnson and James met, they reportedly discussed how to build the Lakers into a contender, with James understanding that at the moment, they are not close.

James is the co-founder of Los Angeles-based production company SpringHill Entertainment, which has developed more than a dozen TV series and films including Starz drama "Survivor's Remorse" and NBC game show "The Wall". Those who don't pass muster can be set free next summer, when LA will have on their books only about $21 million for the four youngsters and Wagner, the waivable (and stretchable) $18 million on Luol Deng's contract and the $38 million they'll pay James.

Over the years, Stephenson also got under James's skin by getting in his face during playoff games, in addition to flopping and, on at least one occasion, making the "choke" sign.
