LeBron James is taking his talents to Los Angeles. The NBA star has inked a 4-year, $153.3 million deal with the Los Angeles Lakers, his agency Klutch Sports recently revealed.
The fourth year of the contract will come with a player option and marks the longest contract James has signed since signing a deal for six years with the Heat back in 2010.
Magic Johnson is said to have engaged in immediate talks with LeBron the moment he landed in L.A. over the weekend.
James also has his SpringHill Entertainment production company with Maverick Carter, and a move to Hollywood could make things all the more easier to keep track of, according to the Hollywood Reporter.
It’s unclear who else might be joining LeBron at this point, but rumors are swirling that Magic and co. are trying to land Kawhi Leonard from the San Antonio Spurs.
On Friday, James told the Cavs that he would be declining his $35.6 million contract option for next season and would become an unrestricted free agent.
