There Are 5 Teams Seriously Chasing LeBron James In Free Agency

As you may have heard by now, LeBron James reached an agreement to sign with the Los Angeles Lakers on a four-year, $154 million deal, per his agency, Klutch Sports. The fourth season on the contract reportedly includes a player option.

The Lakers had shown their interest in Randle, extending a $5.6 million qualifying offer to him in the days leading up to the start of free agency, and the team would have 48 hours to match another offer. "I don't think LeBron is that type of parent, I think he wants to be around his son a lot and see his son play a lot".

The biggest question surrounding the Lakers now is what comes next?

Sources say Caldwell-Pope will re-sign on a one-year, $12 million deal and Stephenson agreed to a one-year, $4.5 million.

Beyond James, L.A. will field a core that consists of Lonzo Ball, Kyle Kuzma and Brandon Ingram. Check out our poll below and let us know what you think. James shocked the National Basketball Association world in 2010 when he left the Cavaliers for the Miami Heat, only to return to Cleveland in 2014 after winning two championships.

If the goal is to be the dominant force in the Eastern Conference for years to come, the Sixers' best bet might be to continue development and make some smaller moves on the free-agent market. They always get their man. For a guy who has basically made it known that he doesn't care about the regular season, those are pretty impressive numbers. It has been widely speculated for a year that James had his eye on Los Angeles, where he maintains an off-season residence and has myriad entertainment business ventures. Previously, the star player was rumored to sign with the Philadelphia 76ers.

LeBron might be a robot - the jury's still out on that one. James spent his first seven seasons with the Cleveland Cavaliers, his next four seasons with the Miami Heat, and his last four seasons back at home with Cleveland. In 2014, James announced he was returning to the Cavaliers via an as-told-to article in Sports Illustrated. That's kind of cool, too.

Now the questions becomes whether or not more National Basketball Association superstars will join James in Los Angeles.
