Lance Stephenson agrees to join Los Angeles Lakers on one-year deal

LeBron James

James reportedly agreed to a four-year, $154 million deal with the team.

The Knicks and Clippers were also mentioned as possible destinations but in the end, James opted for Los Angeles, who are run by former Lakers great Magic Johnson.

When James previously signed as a free agent with the Miami Heat, he joined Dwyane Wade and Chris Both to form a superstar trio, likewise, Kevin Love joined James in his return to the Cavaliers. The Lakers also inked Kentavious Caldwell-Pope to a one-year deal Sunday.

You have to wonder if Carr will be sitting courtside when the Lakers face the defending National Basketball Association champion Golden State Warriors at Oracle Arena in Oakland next season. McGee proved in Golden State he could be a serviceable backup big, and even start in spot moments.

Unlike past free-agent decisions, James wasted no time in announcing his next move.

Ronaldo nearly had a chance at goal on 20 minutes but a timely clearance by Gimenez six yards was enough to keep Ronaldo at bay. With or without Cavani, though, Uruguay will make it tough for France and should not be written off.

In 2014 however, he finally returned to his roots and rejoined the Cavaliers where he has been for the past four years.

The Lakers had a large amount of cap space to work with. One of general manager Koby Altman's most critical tasks will be deciding whether to retain or trade Kevin Love, who will make nearly $50 million the next two seasons. "We look forward to the retirement of the famous #23 Cavs jersey one day down the line..."

That comes following a season in which he played in just 18 games across three teams. The Cavs became the first team to rally back from a 3-1 deficit in the Finals, and they did so against a team that won a league-record 73 games in the regular season. He thanked Cavaliers fans in an Instagram post, saying the city will always be his home. James helped seal a Game 7 win with a chase-down block of Andre Iguodala, the signature moment of a career that has shown no signs of decay.

Cleveland's roster was exposed during this year's finals, and James may not have seen a way for it to improve enough to win a fourth title.
