Philadelphia 76ers to meet with reps for LeBron James

Lakers brass headed by former NBA champion Magic Johnson will try to convince NBA superstar Le Bron James to sign with Los Angeles now that he has become a free agent

LeBron James agreed to sign with the Los Angeles Lakers on Sunday night; in 2016, he took in a Rams game, and the Rams were quick to welcome him to the city.

"LeBron James, four-time NBA MVP, three time NBA finals MVP, fourteen time NBA all-star, and two-time Olympic gold medalist has agreed to a four-year, 154 million US dollar contract with the Los Angeles Lakers", Klutch Sports said at 5:05 pm. The most obvious name thus far hasn't been a free agent, but a guy under contract and unhappy with the San Antonio Spurs. The Knicks and Clippers were also mentioned but James opted for Los Angeles, now run by former Lakers great Magic Johnson. Using the stretch provision on Luol Deng's contract-Deng is owed almost $37 million over the next two years-would also give the Lakers more money to spend. But those rumors also came with the idea of James luring Paul George to L.A. George instead chose to re-sign with the Oklahoma City Thunder on Sunday, so James and the Lakers will need to go in a different direction to made further upgrades to their roster.

But, what would potential packages look like?

Miami did strike a two-year agreement with Derrick Jones Jr., who was on a two-way contract in 2017-18.

The Cavaliers also tried to keep James, reportedly being on the phone with him seconds after midnight Sunday as the free agency period opened.

They can open up even more space if they find a way to move the $8.6 million they owe guard Jerryd Bayless in 2018-19. Leonard has been at odds with the Spurs for months and asked for a trade, preferably to the Los Angeles Lakers.

Similarly, George may want to see what James decides before making his pick between the Lakers and Oklahoma City Thunder . Rockets point guard Chris Paul has agreed to sign a four-year, $160 million deal, according to the Houston Chronicle.

French convict escapes from prison using a helicopter
In the 1990s, Faid led a criminal gang involved in armed robbery of banks and armored vans transporting money. A third gunmen had stayed in the helicopter with the pilot, who had been taken hostage.

The 33-year-old superstar announced via his agency he has agreed to a $154million contract with the Lakers.

However, LeBron could soon be joined in L.A.by Spurs forward Kawhi Leonard, who has publicly expressed his desire to be traded to the Lakers after his relationship with San Antonio soured beyond fix.

In 82 games this season, James averaged 27.5 points, 8.6 rebounds and 9.1 assists. "They were a lot younger the last time I made a decision like this four years ago". He added that Northeast Ohio "will always be home".

Lakers LeBron Jerseys won't ship until the deal is signed, which could happen as early as noon on Friday.

He could still re-sign with Cleveland, although the strong current from national media is James appears ready to move again.
