Bron: James agrees to 4-year contract with Lakers

Cleveland Cavaliers' Le Bron James walks to the bench during the first half of Game 4 of basketball's NBA Finals against the Golden State Warriors in Cleveland. Two people familiar with the decision say Ja

CLEVELAND-Shortly after his agent announced he would be taking his talents to the Los Angeles Lakers, LeBron James posted a special message to his hometown on Instagram.

Los Angeles is among the teams in the mix to land James after his agent told the Cleveland Cavaliers that he will not exercise his $US35.6 million contract option for next season.

But George has chose to re-sign with the Oklahoma City Thunder, raising doubts on whether James could head to the Lakers.

As with every time LeBron has changed teams, the balance of power in the National Basketball Association shifts with him.

Now that free agency has started, keep checking back to see where the top players have signed. Despite hard-fought campaigns by Sixers fans as well as team management, James did not choose Philadelphia for the next step in his career.

The bonanza started Saturday night when Durant made a decision to sign a two-year, $61.5 million deal with the stay with the two-time defending champion Golden State Warriors, one where he'll make $30.5 million this season.

He delivered the first championship to the sports-obsessed city in 52 years and did it with storybook gusto, helping the Cavaliers become the first team in NBA Finals history to rally from a 3-1 series deficit to win it all. James has agreed to a 4-year, $154 million deal with the Lakers, keeping him in Lakers colors until his 20th season.

"Yes, the Lakers are still favorites-but not total locks-to sign LeBron James, league sources say". Kevin Love, who averaged 17.6 points and 9.3 rebounds per game last season, and rookie point guard Collin Sexton - a masterful scorer in the pick-and-roll and transition -averaged 19.2 points per game as a freshman at the University of Alabama.

Medium Large is looking to add motivated individuals with big dreams and a big appetite for success to our LakersNation.com direct sales team based in Los Angeles or Orange County.

But what was not expected was that James would sign anywhere for four seasons.

Retired Lakers icon Kobe Bryant also reached out to show his support and excitement, tweeting, "Welcome to the family @KingJames #lakers4life #striveforgreatness @JeanieBuss @MagicJohnson and RP well done!"
