LeBron James signing a 'historic moment' for Lakers

Kobe Bryant Lakers Matt Barnes

The club announced late Monday afternoon that James has put pen to paper on the reported four-year, $154 million deal, just as James' representation, Klutch Sports Group, tweeted an image of James, agent Rich Paul and Lakers general manager Rob Pelinka confirming the news.

James brought Cleveland its first major sports crown since 1964 when the Cavs won the 2016 NBA crown but lost three of four finals showdowns with the Golden State Warriors, falling to 3-6 for his career in the NBA Finals, and chose to make a move in hopes of rebuilding the Lakers into a victor. But it only took a phone call from LeBron to persuade Stephenson to join the Lakers.

"I was actually surprised he made the move to L.A". He also noted that he appreciated the fact that James reached out to him to compliment his game.

Stephenson says the Lakers want him to bring his defensive edge, be a veteran leader and just be himself. Stephenson created multiple memes during the 2014 East finals between the Pacers and James' Miami Heat by blowing in James' ear and making a famously exaggerated flop. "I just can't wait to be on the floor with him, actually get on the court with him". "Bringing me into the bunch as a rim defender and a big who can switch is just an awesome process and I really give kudos to the front office". "I am very excited to see what that brings and just playing with him, one of the best players to play the game is going to be awesome".

James, 33, has averaged 27.2 points, 7.4 rebounds and 7.2 assists per game in 1,143 career contests.

James will continue donning the number 23 for the Lakers.

"It is going to give us a great advantage", Stephenson said.

The Lakers, a 16-time National Basketball Association champion, have missed the playoffs for five consecutive seasons.

In addition to James, the Lakers' management team of Johnson and Pelinka have added guards Rajon Rondo and Lance Stephenson and center JaVale McGee to the roster during a hyperactive free-agency period that begin with the start of the negotiating period at 9:01 p.m., June 30.

Mykhailiuk has been impressive early in Las Vegas summer league play, and the Lakers decided they didn't need to wait to sign him later in the off-season.
