LeBron James, the four-time NBA MVP and 14-time All-Star, announced Sunday afternoon that he has agreed to a 4-year, $154 million contract to join the Los Angeles Lakers.
The news broke in a tweet from James’ sports agency, Klutch Sports.
James, a two-time Olympic gold medalist and three-time NBA Finals MVP, was an unrestricted free agent after spending the last four years back with his hometown Cleveland Cavaliers.
Last year, in his 15th season, James averaged 27.5 points per game in leading the Cavaliers to the NBA Finals.
