  • A high-level Philadelphia 76ers contingent is meeting with Le Bron James agent Rich Paul on Sunday in Los Angeles Action News has learned

Paul informed the Cavs on Friday morning that the four-time MVP would not opt in to the final year of his contract; James was scheduled to make $35.6 million in 2018-19.

Carr didn't stop there, issuing an application for those wishing to root for the Lakers now that James will be playing there.

After James' management agency, Klutch Sports Group, made the announcement about the superstar's decision, the Lakers announced that they had re-signed shooting guard Kentavious Caldwell-Pope and signed free agent swingman Lance Stephenson, who has been with several teams, most recently the Indiana Pacers. It also helps that the Lakers are one of the game's premier franchises.

After being drafted in the second round of the 2010 National Basketball Association draft, Stephenson made a name for himself in four seasons in Indiana.

Amazon to buy PillPack in potentially disruptive drug retail push
Walmart was reportedly interested in buying PillPack earlier his year, but Amazon seems to have won out in the end. Amazon today unveiled plans to get into the pharmacy business with the acquisition of the online service PillPack.

The Lakers are heard to be offering only one-year deals to maximize their cap space for the summer of 2019.

Kevin Love is Cleveland's only major trade chip, assuming No. 8 overall pick Collin Sexton is off the table, and the Cavs aren't flush with pieces to dangle in return for valuable young players or draft picks. As The Hollywood Reporter points out, James also has his SpringHill Entertainment production company with Maverick Carter, and a move to Hollywood could make things all the more easier to keep track of.

So we rounded up some of the best ones. Last season, he averaged 9.2 points, 5.2 rebounds and 2.9 assists in 22.6 minutes per game.

That comes following a season in which he played in just 18 games across three teams.

Many have already wondered what the NBA Finals might look like without James taking on the Warriors every year. He thanked Cavaliers fans in an Instagram post, saying the city will always be his home. After LeBron's team took meetings with the Philadelphia 76ers, and his former team, the Cleveland Cavaliers, he ended up confirming the worst kept secret in the league this offseason.
