Philadelphia 76ers to meet with reps for LeBron James

While some have questioned how James will fit into Los Angeles' system, Bogut said the question should be the other way around, with James' dictating the Lakers' direction.

In a move that comes as no surprise, superstar LeBron James has signed a free agent deal with the Los Angeles Lakers.

In a lengthy statement thanking James, Cleveland owner Dan Gilbert said: "Words do not express the meaning and the feeling this accomplishment brought to the people of Northeast Ohio".

The basketball star was also welcomed to LA Lakers by star footballer Zlatan Ibrahimovic on Twitter, who plays for LA Galaxy.

James' agency made the huge announcement on Sunday, saying he has agreed to a staggering four-year, $154million (£117m) contract at one of the NBA's most iconic franchises. James will make him better. Two with the Miami Heat and one with the Cleveland Cavaliers. Players with 7-9 years of experience, can earn a max salary of $30.3 million. He chose to be a Laker for what will probably be the four last great years of his career to win championships.

He played all 82 games for the first time in his career, and still dragged a mediocre Cavaliers roster to the NBA Finals, where they were swept away by Golden State.

"Friendlies and tournament qualifiers for a footballing nation like Germany are not proper indicators of the state of our team". Of the half-dozen winners of the trophy since 1970, Germany have gone home, while Italy, of course, never even qualified.

Eight years ago, LeBron James announced he was taking his talents to South Beach in a television special. The 33-year-old had previously said he wanted to finish his career in OH, and although he's leaving again, Cavs fans are more forgiving after he ended the city's 52-year sport title drought in 2016. James, had he chose to stay, could have inked a five-year, $207 million deal with the Cavs.

How is this Lakers team going to get built?

Cleveland Cavaliers general manager Koby Altman spoke to both James and Paul on the phone when National Basketball Association free agency officially opened at 12:01 a.m. ET Sunday, sources told ESPN's Dave McMenamin.

His stay with the Cavaliers will best be remembered for 2016, when he rallied the Cavs from a 3-1 deficit in the finals to stun the Warriors. She announced with her fiancé Phil Jackson, the coach with an entire hand full of Lakers championship rings, that they were breaking off their engagement.

O'Neal, despite being so young, was already one of the most dominant players in the game, and was coming off a season in which he had averaged 26.6 points, 11 rebounds and 2.9 assists a game.
