Although LeBron James, who is apparently ‘extremely happy‘ being in Los Angeles, has not signed an extension with the Lakers yet, there is little doubt he will reach an agreement with the team.
“All signs point toward both sides looking to extend their partnership together,” ESPN’s Dave McMenamin said. “It’s already led to one championship in 2020. It’s also led to two playoff appearances where they didn’t make it, but overall I think both sides recognize that they can help one another get to their mutual goal, which is to compete at a high level and stay relevant as both one of the best players in the NBA and one of the most marquee franchises in the NBA.”
James, 37, just finished up his fourth season with the Lakers and averaged 30.3 points, 8.2 rebounds, and 6.2 assists per contest.
