James, Lakers reach two-year deal


LeBron James agreed to a two-year contract extension with the Lakers, keeping him with the team through the 202223 season, Klutch Sports agent Rich Paul

said Wednesday.

The deal is worth $85 million.

It could be a hint as to what Paul’s other marquee client, AnthonyDav­is,

plans to do with the Lakers. Davis, who became an unrestrict­ed free agent when he opted out of the final year of his contract, is expected to re-sign with the Lakers, though the details of his deal haven’t yet been finalized.

James, who turns 36 at the end of December, is coming off his fourth NBA championsh­ip, leading the Lakers to glory in the NBA bubble where he was named NBA Finals most valuable player.

♦ The Detroit Pistons agreed to a nonguarant­eed deal with LiAngelo Ball. Ball is the brother of New Orleans Pelicans guard Lonzo Ball and Charlotte Hornets lottery pick LaMelo Ball.
