The offseason is never sillier than when Le Bron James is on the market. More

Back in 2010 at the time of James "taking his talents to South Beach" and Gilbert's original letter, many dismissed the idea of the three-time NBA MVP ever returning to Cleveland simply based on its owner's original farewell letter.

Once James committed to the Lakers, Stephenson was a top player on the team's priority list.

Shortly after the announcement, James posted a three-photo tribute to Cleveland fans on his Instagram account. "This will always be home".

The scenario I've outlined where the Lakers sign nothing but one-year deals this summer would leave L.A. with something like $25 million in cap space in 2019 with Deng on the books. More could follow if the Lakers make a trade with the Spurs for Kawhi Leonard, with the likes of Brandon Ingram and Kyle Kuzma possibly on the table.

McGee and the Lakers reached agreement on a one-year deal worth the minimum, league sources told ESPN.

Los Angeles already has parted ways with one of its prominent young players, renouncing the rights Monday to Julius Randle, the seventh draft pick in 2014 who reportedly has agreed to join the New Orleans Pelicans.

News of James' arrival at the Lakers sparked a delighted response on Sunday, with basketball legends and Hollywood celebrities lining up to welcome the move.




Despite his departure, James' impact on the entire organization will likely be felt for quite some time.

The 33-year-old James is coming off a season in which he averaged 27.5 points per game with the Cleveland Cavaliers.

James led the Cavaliers to a NBA Championship in 2016, when they upset the Warriors and shocked the world after being down 3-1 in the best of seven series.

Unlike his two previous forays in free agency, James did not drag out his decision and made the announcement less than 24 hours after National Basketball Association free agency opened.

Every time LeBron James has been a free agent, the biggest question was where he'd end up.

The victory was the first major sports championship for a Cleveland team since 1964.
