National Basketball Association: Free Agency

LeBron James decided that the unfinished business that brought him home in 2014 was satisfied by the Cavaliers’ 2016 championship.

Despite his pledge at InfoCision Stadium four years ago that he was “not going anywhere ever again … I don’t have the energy” for free agency, James chose the Los Angeles Lakers as his next destination, leaving the Cavs for the second time.

His agency, Klutch Sports, made the announcement on Twitter Sunday night. A brief press release said the four-time league MVP had agreed to a four-year, $154 million contract with the Lakers.
