After turning their attention away from James, Philadelphia re-signed J.J. Redick and Amir Johnson and added Nemanja Bjelica and Wilson Chandler. If you love sports, know digital sales, and can throw your weight behind an aggressive commission based opportunity than we would love to talk to you.

This has put head coach Luke Walton in his third season with the team in the position of coaching arguably the best player in the league.

The Los Angeles Lakers announced the signing of LeBron James as a free agent Monday night, confirming the seismic shift created by the four-time NBA Most Valuable Player's decision to leave Cleveland for the 16-time champion franchise on the West Coast.

The Lakers don't appear to be planning a public event to welcome James to Los Angeles, where he already owns multiple homes and spends summers with his family. "We will continue forward and do all that is necessary to achieve our shared obsession of bringing banner number 17 to the world's best fans - Lakers Nation".

"Today is a great day for the Lakers organization and Lakers fans all over the world to welcome LeBron James, a three-time NBA champion and a four-time NBA MVP", Lakers president of basketball operations Magic Johnson said in a statement.

This marks the first time James will play for a team in the hotly contested Western Conference, which includes heavyweight teams such as the Golden State Warriors and Houston Rockets.

The Lakers have not been to the play-offs since 2013 and James will set out to take them back. James won two titles with the Miami Heat and one with the Cavaliers.

"I think they considered us very strongly", Sixers managing parner Josh Harris told ESPN on Monday.

James, 33, has averaged 27.2 points, 7.4 rebounds and 7.2 assists per game in 1,143 career contests.
