LeBron James is expected to sign an extension and remain with the Los Angeles Lakers for the next two years.
This is what Kurt Helin of NBC Sports reports, adding that the four-time NBA champion doesn’t plan on parting ways with the 17-time NBA champions.
“That is why most people NBC Sports has spoken with around the league expect LeBron James to sign the extension in some form. Eventually.
He may well milk the leverage to send a message about roster changes — although it’s not like Rob Pelinka and company have not tried to trade Westbrook — but in the end, LeBron does not give off the vibe of a guy looking to bolt Los Angeles,” Helin reports.
What remains to be seen is when the superstar forward will sign the extension, which will be for two years, worth $97.1M. The expectation is this will happen sometime before the start of training camp in September.
It is also unclear if LeBron James will sign the extension and remain with the Lakers until 2024 or he will have a player option next summer (1+1).
