James' agency announced Sunday that he will leave the Cleveland Cavaliers after agreeing to a four-year, $154 million contract with the Los Angeles Lakers.

ESPN, Sports Illustrated, the Los Angeles Times and New Orleans Times-Picayune reported Rondo will sign a one-year deal with the Lakers for $9 million after releasing forward Julius Randle to free up space under the National Basketball Association salary cap.

LeBron's four-year deal (player option for the fourth year) indicates a willingness to show some patience, so perhaps the Lakers felt throwing Cousins into the mix late in the season would disrupt whatever chemistry their team might have built throughout the season.

"Lonzo ain't going to play off the ball", LaVar said.

Furthermore, Wilt Chamberlain played just five seasons with the Lakers, the last five of his career, and is absolutely revered amongst Lakers fans as his number hangs in the rafters alongside the rest of the legends.

The San Antonio Spurs made it clear to any trade suitor this offseason that they are not in the mode of rebuilding and plan on staying competitive when Kawhi Leonard eventually departs from the team.

That's primarily because James managed to do exactly what he set out to do when he re-joined the Cavs in the summer of 2014.

Love has two years and $50 million left on his contract, but the Vardon piece makes the point that they are not interested in trading him at this point. Fortunately for the Chicago Bulls, he's out of the Eastern Conference. Howard reportedly has interest in re-joining the Los Angeles Lakers. "They still ain't gonna win with this team right here". It is especially concerning that the Lakers couldn't convince Paul George to meet with them before deciding to re-sign with the Oklahoma City Thunder. However, it is a bit disappointing that the Lakers followed up this momentous occasion by adding players that don't maximize LeBron's chances of competing for a championship this upcoming season. "The Lakers with LeBron?"
