LeBron James remains a Laker


LEBRON James extended his stay with the Los Angeles Lakers after signing a maximum two-year contract worth $104 million, which includes a player option and a no-trade clause.

Prior to re-signing with the Lakers, James entered free agency by opting out of his $51.4 million contract.

The Lakers have been linked to DeMar DeRozan, Klay Thompson, and Jonas Valančiūnas throughout free agency. So far, the purple and gold have not yet signed new names despite James promising to take a pay cut to trigger the full mid-level exemption (MLE). 

In the 2024 NBA draft, the Lakers drafted James’ son, Bronny James, with the 55th pick. They also hired JJ Redick, James’ long-time pal and podcast partner, as their newest coach.

James was drafted by the Cleveland Cavaliers in 2003. He is the first player to reach 30,000 points, 10,000 rebounds, and 10,000 assists and is currently the NBA’s all-time leading scorer.
