LeBron James Re-Signs with Lakers on Historic Deal

LeBron James has re-signed with the Los Angeles Lakers, securing a two-year, $104 million contract that includes a player option for the second year and a no-trade clause. This deal reaffirms LeBron’s commitment to the Lakers as he enters his 22nd NBA season.

The new contract, which also includes a 15% trade kicker, allows the Lakers to retain some financial flexibility under the salary cap. This move could help the team in acquiring additional talent to bolster their roster.

“No one plays the game like LeBron James, and his commitment to continuous performance and long-term sustained excellence is unmatched,” said Lakers head of basketball operations Rob Pelinka. “We’re grateful to have his leadership as he returns for another season with the Lakers”.

LeBron, who turned 39 in December, continues to defy age with his stellar performances. Last season, he averaged 25.7 points, 8.3 assists, and 7.3 rebounds per game, demonstrating his continued impact on the court.

“It’s an incredible opportunity to keep building my legacy with the Lakers,” LeBron said in a statement following the announcement of his new deal.

Pelinka added, “LeBron and new Lakers head coach JJ Redick will together lead a championship-caliber team that will play with great pride every time they take the floor.

Entering his 22nd season, LeBron continues to remind us that no obstacle is too big and no goal is out of reach. We’re so thankful that the history-making story of LeBron James will continue to be written in front of Lakers fans throughout the world”.
