LeBron James to sign 4-year, $154 million deal with the Lakers

NBA Rumors: Predicting where the top 10 free agents will land

NBA Rumors: Predicting where the top 10 free agents will land

James, whose Cavaliers were swept by the Golden State Warriors in the 2018 NBA Finals, opted out of his contract in June, three weeks after the season ended. James, however, will not be at this meeting.

It is unclear at this point if an in-person meeting between James and the Cavs has been scheduled down the line.

It appears that James chose the Lakers over the Cleveland Cavaliers, although the Philadelphia 76ers did make a push late. Westgate Las Vegas Resort & Casino gives the Lakers the second-best odds to win next year's National Basketball Association title.

LeBron James will play for a Western Conference team for the first time in his career.

The 76ers' contingent was to be led by their ownership group headed by Josh Harris and David Blitzer, a person with knowledge of the details told AP.

Paul also represents Simmons and James has been complimentary of the Rookie of the Year.

Remember, James can't even talk to the Lakers until midnight. Hoops Hype reported several notable veterans have said privately they would be willing to play with James for the minimum. It's important to note, however, that LeBron is known to spend his summers in Los Angeles at one of his two homes. At the moment, most have James pinned as either making a move to either Philly or Los Angeles if he chooses not to return with the Cavs.

Los Angeles had been hoping to sign Paul George.

This is the second time James has departed from Cleveland. James has not publicly commented on what team he will sign with as his family and close advisers consider offers at his "decision cave" in the Caribbean.
