The news of the contract signing, like the July 1 announcement the 33-year-old would part ways with the Cleveland Cavaliers for Los Angeles, was announced on Twitter by Klutch Sports, the agency that represents James.
They are thrilled at signing the four-time NBA MVP and the man they called the best in the sport. He loves to compete and is an awesome leader who is about winning and making sure that his team-mates are successful. The Lakers are excited to have a team-mate who has gone nine times to the NBA Finals.
We don't know which teams these general managers work for, but in regards to the Los Angeles Lakers, Philadelphia 76ers and Boston Celtics - the three teams most often associated with Leonard in trade rumors - it makes little to no sense to give up anything of great value to acquire Leonard without knowing if he wants to re-sign.

This erases any doubt that James wasn't in on the moves that were made following his agreement to join the Lakers, with the team getting the likes of Rajon Rondo, Lance Stephenson, and JaVale McGee, as well as retaining Kentavious Caldwell-Pope. "We will continue forward and do all that is necessary to achieve our shared obsession of bringing banner No. 17 to the world's best fans - Lakers Nation", Pelinka added. "It's a huge step closer to returning the Lakers to the playoffs and to the NBA Finals". Last season was his first in which he played in all 82 regular-season games, and the eighth in a row in which his team advanced to the NBA Finals (four in Miami before each of the past four seasons in Cleveland).
Lakers coach Luke Walton reportedly was scheduled to meet Monday with James' former coach, Tyronn Lue, at the NBA Summer League in Las Vegas to learn more about coaching the future Hall of Famer.
