Lakers Give LeBron James $97 Million For 2 More Years

LeBron James has no plans on leaving Los Angeles as a huge contract extension for the basketball legend has been signed.

James, who has been with the Lakers since 2018, agreed to a two-year $97.1 million dollar deal.

The extension makes James the “highest-earning player in NBA history with $532 million in guaranteed money, surpassing Brooklyn Nets star Kevin Durant.”

This new deal will make James ineligible for a trade, ensuring that the star will still don the purple and gold Lakers jersey until 2024.
