Before this league-changing news, the San Antonio Spurs could have been asking for the moon in a Leonard trade, arguing that the Lakers were essentially trading for two franchise players.

If the Lakers can offer up enough assets to snare Leonard, the chances of James heading to La La land would seem a viable option due to Leonard being one of the premier two-way players in the game and the Lakers still having enough cap space to offer James a max deal. His best statistical season was the last, where his 27.5 points were the most since 2010 (an ominous sign, it turns out) and he tied a career high with 8.6 boards and set a new best with 9.1 assists.

George and Paul made their announcements known not long afterward.

ESPN's Brian Windhorst's reported the Lakers are still the favorites to sign James in free agency.

Even the Los Angeles Rams extended their welcome to James.

Sweden and Germany both had three points, and South Korea had zero. "We are happy and thinking about what comes next", he said. They also controlled possession, holding the ball 70% of the time.

James' agreement with the Lakers was announced through a simple press release sent by his agent, Rich Paul, which says James, a 14-time All-Star, three-time Finals MVP, and two-time Olympic gold medalist, was joining the Lakers.

On Friday, James formally became a free agent when he informed the Cavs he would not exercise his $35.6 million contract option for next season, making him an unrestricted free agent and the prize catch in the 2018 class. Just as he did in 2014, James is likely to sign a shorter contract that allows him to do this whole thing again in a few summers.

The Philadelphia 76ers, whose young star Ben Simmons has the same agent as James, were also in the hunt with James, hoping to build a potential triple threat alongside the Australian and Cameroon forward Joel Embiid.

He flew to Los Angeles on Saturday, creating a frenzy without saying a word.

By moving West for the first time in his career, James will face a stiffer competition night in, night out, with Steph Curry's Warriors, James' Rockets and a whole lot of stacked teams crowding the playoff race.

There is no doubt that the addition of James immediately brings the Lakers back into the forefront of the National Basketball Association. "This will always be home". This will require him starting from scratch in terms of building chemistry with his teammates, just like he did when he left Cleveland eight years ago and when he returned four years ago.
