The Los Angeles Lakers signed four-time MVP and three-time NBA Finals MVP LeBron James to a four-year deal Sunday evening, the first day that NBA teams are allowed to agree to terms on deals in free agency. James made a decision to flip the script on the waiting game when it came to free agency, pulling the trigger and wrapping things up before week's end.

Multiple reports suggest that after signing James, the Lakers are also eyeing a trade with the San Antonio Spurs for All-Star forward Kawahi Leonard. Gilbert opened his comments by referring to Cleveland's 2016 title as "a championship that united generations of Clevelanders, both living and passed".

LeBron, you came home and delivered the ultimate goal. We wish his kids, his wife Savannah, his mother Gloria, and LeBron himself nothing but the best in the years and decades ahead.

Lakers receiving pressure to trade for Kawhi Leonard
The Celtics has a lot to offer, but will Danny Ainge be willing to part with Tatum for a high-profile rental like Leonard. Kawhi Leonard's days with the San Antonio Spurs are numbered as a trade away from the franchise looks imminent.

James chose to become a free agent after his second stint with the Cleveland Cavaliers in which he made good on his promise to bring a championship title to what is essentially his home town, having grown up in Akron, Ohio.

Former Lakers superstar and five-time champion Kobe Bryant sent out a welcome to James.

James gave Cleveland something to remember in his final season.

The Cavs played 81 postseason games - one contest shy of an entire regular season - the last four years, winning 55 of them. James helped seal a Game 7 win with a chase-down block of Andre Iguodala, the signature moment of a career that has shown no signs of decay.

Southgate set to make eight changes to England side against Belgium
Top spot in Group G is on the line when England and Belgium square off in World Cup action from Kaliningrad Stadium on Thursday. I don't think it would be professional of us to put those players at a risk of missing the knockout phase.

That group will need time together to pose a threat to the Golden State Warriors and Houston Rockets, to be sure.

The chance to play for one of America's most storied franchises is a new challenge for James, who prides himself on knowing the game's history.

Last season, Lakers only won 35 of their 82 matches.
