LaVar Ball Speaks Out About LeBron James Signing With Los Angeles Lakers

NBA free agency 2018 tracker Le Bron James Sixers and more

The Lakers are still exploring possible options to acquire another superstar to pair alongside LeBron James.

LaVar Ball has been outspoken about the Los Angeles Lakers and the moves that they make since his son Lonzo Ball was taken with the No. 2 overall pick in the 2017 NBA Draft.

After snatching LeBron James, the biggest free agent in the 2018 market, the Los Angeles Lakers are shifting to filling out the roster. Not only have the Lakers agreed to terms with LeBron James, Los Angeles was also aggressive in signing veterans to surround James with.

The Lakers started with a bang, as they were able to sign LeBron James to a four-year deal. "Nothing but appreciation and gratitude for everything you put into every moment you spent in a Cavaliers uniform", team owner Dan Gilbert told James in a statement. That was certainly the case with Paul George, who before signing with the Oklahoma City Thunder a year ago, wanted to join the Los Angeles side.

The Spurs have reportedly refused to deal Leonard to the Lakers, because the two teams play in the same conference.

An Ohio native and ardent Cavaliers fan, Heidepriem arrived wearing his No. 23 Cavaliers jersey with "JAMES" across the back, but also showed off his new phone screen saver, which pictured James in a Lakers uniform. As it now stands, it will be James surrounded by a young core, but Kawhi Leonard has maintained he wants the San Antonio Spurs to trade him to his hometown.

King James ended speculation about where he will play next season by inking a massive four-year, $154-million contract with the Lakers.

That means the Celtics, despite only re-signing Australian center Aron Baynes and adding EuroLeague guard Brad Wanamaker so far, are one of the NBA's biggest winners so far during free agency.

Caldwell-Pope, 25, will head into his second season with the Lakers after finishing a one-year, $18 million deal. Not exactly the most appealing situation to a player trying to win championships as his career approaches its end. Only 15 of them have been featured players in the East, the remaining four (Dwight Howard, Tony Parker, Al Jefferson and Isaiah Thomas) filled by players who are free agents. But whether they can make that happen appears still very much in question. Chandler is a proven scorer and a long-time National Basketball Association starter who will add depth and veteran leadership to the up-and-coming Sixers, who also will receive a second-round draft pick.
