LeBron James Leaves Cleveland Again, and Signs with the Lakers
Posted: 5:31 am Monday, July 2nd, 2018
Lebron James didn’t waste much time deciding on his next move. Last night, on the first day of free agency, he announced that he’s leaving Cleveland again . . . this time for the L.A. Lakers.
He signed a four-year, $153.3 million deal with the Lakers. That’s the most L.A. could offer . . . but he’s leaving roughly $53 million on the table. The Cavs could’ve offered him five years and more than $205 million if he stayed.
The fourth year of LeBron’s new contract is reportedly a player option, so if things don’t work out in L.A., he can opt out after three years.
