  • LeBron in it for the long haul with Lakers

The Lakers haven't made the playoffs in five years. Those subsequent moves raise one important question: LeBron is aware the Lakers did that, right?

The Cavs could have significant salary-cap space in 2019-20, depending on what they do with Love, Tristan Thompson (who will make $18.5 million that season), Jordan Clarkson ($13.4 million), J.R. Smith and Kyle Korver.

Cleveland was 12-1 on Friday when it was still in the running to retain James.

There are several star National Basketball Association players set to hit free agency in 2019. The team was projected to have a little under $50 million to hand out. But those rumors also came with the idea of James luring Paul George to L.A. George instead chose to re-sign with the Oklahoma City Thunder on Sunday, so James and the Lakers will need to go in a different direction to made further upgrades to their roster.

James' camp and the Cavaliers' front office have maintained a dialogue since the season ended, sources said.

While on an early morning hike, Godwin said in a Facebook post that she nearly stepped on a rattlesnake. She also thanked the pup's many fans on the internet for their support and kindness.

James' four-year, $154 million contract will net him over $35 million each season, according to Bobby Marks of ESPN. One of general manager Koby Altman's most critical tasks will be deciding whether to retain or trade Kevin Love, who will make nearly $50 million the next two seasons.

The Golden State Warriors still hold the crown until someone proves otherwise.

Another reason for James's willingness to sign a long-term deal with the Lakers is the team's proximity to Hollywood. People wondered if Kobe was capable of passing the baton to James, even if he's over two years removed from his last National Basketball Association game. Rondo could also be an excellent tutor for Lonzo Ball, last year's No. 2 draft pick who shares numerous veteran's traits, including slick passing skills and ... an alarming inability to shoot well. Randle will immediately become an unrestricted free agent. He thanked Cavaliers fans in an Instagram post, saying the city will always be his home.

His move from the Cleveland Cavaliers ends months of speculation. So, you know, I don't really like to go back on that letter, but pops in my head a few times here, a few times there.
