LeBron James set to join the Lakers on a four-year deal

"For today's meeting, Sixers will meet with LeBron James' reps, sources tell ESPN".

Thirty-three-year-old James is a four-time NBA MVP, three-time NBA finals MVP, 14-time NBA All Star and two-time Olympic gold medalist.

With James' decision to leave Cleveland - just as he did eight years ago when he joined the Miami Heat - the Cavs say goodbye to their all-time leader in several statistical categories, including points, rebounds, assists, steals, games and minutes played.

James opted out of a United States $35.6 million player option for the 2018-19 season with the Cleveland Cavaliers, and was reported to have had contact with the team as free agency opened last night. James' agency, Klutch Sports Group, made the announcement in a brief press release issued on Sunday night.

The decision by the game's best all-around player to leave his native OH for Los Angeles, where he has a home, will make the Lakers an instant contender in the Western Conference where the Golden State Warriors have won three of the last four National Basketball Association titles, defeating Cleveland each time.

"What Woj is reporting is (obviously, as always) 100% correct", Wright wrote later on Twitter.

His move from the Cavaliers, where he signed in 2014, will bring him nearer to Hollywood, to which James is no stranger.

James leaves the franchise as its leader in almost every major statistical category: games played, points, rebounds, assists and steals. According to Chris Haynes of ESPN and Shams Charania of Yahoo Sports, the Lakers have agreed to a deal with Lance Stephenson.

"Lakers & 76ers can offer LeBron the same four-year max deal, but Sixers deal nets LeBron around $11 million because of tax difference between California & Pennsylvania", Rovell noted, as the Philly Fan Life blog optimistically put the pieces together.

And yet to come is where San Antonio big man Kawhi Leonard will end up.
