Zlatan Ibrahimovic welcomes LeBron James to Los Angeles

LeBron James

When news broke that LeBron James agreed to a four-year, $154 million contract with the Los Angeles Lakers, Carr didn't waste time to welcome James to his favorite team by sending a direct message to the three-time National Basketball Association champion on Twitter. The Lakers are considered strong candidates to sign James, but he also has an offseason home in L.A.

When James previously signed as a free agent with the Miami Heat, he joined Dwyane Wade and Chris Both to form a superstar trio, likewise, Kevin Love joined James in his return to the Cavaliers. Chief among them was former Los Angeles Lakers great Kobe Bryant, who said he was excited to see James playing in purple and gold at Staples next year. He then signed a three-year, $27 million deal with the Charlotte Hornets, which started his tour around the league.

With the Lakers, LeBron is operating with a team that is still very much a work in progress.

James isn't expected to attend the meeting, which is the first significant chance for the 76ers to make a free-agent pitch to James, league sources said. McGee has played the past two years for the Golden State Warriors.

The team didn't wait long to announce their next move.

Serena Williams seeded for Wimbledon
Putting Williams at No. 25 now means that she could face someone seeded No. 1 through No. 8 in the third round. As Wimbledon approached, she petitioned for the All England Club to take maternity leave into account.

The Lakers are heard to be offering only one-year deals to maximize their cap space for the summer of 2019. Pic: GettyIn his time with the Cavs, James managed to bring a championship to Cleveland.

So we rounded up some of the best ones. Stephenson played in 82 games for the Pacers last season, averaging 9.2 points in 22.6 minutes per game. James helped seal a Game 7 win with a chase-down block of Andre Iguodala, the signature moment of a career that has shown no signs of decay.

His stay with the Cavaliers will best be remembered for 2016, when he rallied the Cavs from a 3-1 deficit in the finals to stun the Warriors.

Afterward, James yelled, "Cleveland, this is for you", into Doris Burke's microphone. He thanked Cavaliers fans in an Instagram post, saying the city will always be his home.
