LeBron James 'agrees to $104MILLION, two-year deal to return to Lakers' after Los Angeles drafted his son Bronny in the second round


ESPN is reporting that the 39-year-old LeBron has agreed to a two-year, $104 max deal to return to the Los Angeles Lakers after opting out of his contract last week. The deal does include a no-trade clause, according to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski. LeBron's imminent return to the Lakers was never in doubt. While there had been some speculation that he could push his way to Phoenix or wherever Bronny was ultimately drafted, LeBron's ties to the Lakers were far too strong to leave LA now that his own son and namesake is on the team. Days after the historical selection made them the first father and son tandem in the league, the four-time NBA champion took to X to appreciate the moment. 'With the 55th in the 2024 NBA draft. The Los Angeles Lakers select……. Bronny James,' the Lakers star wrote with six crying-smiling emojis. 'Just had a moment!'
Wow, what an incredible moment for LeBron and Bronny! It's amazing to see them make history as the first father and son tandem in the NBA. LeBron's return to the Lakers was definitely expected, but it's still exciting to see it confirmed. Can't wait to see what they accomplish together on the court! 🏀💜💛
