After four seasons with the Los Angeles Lakers, NBA megastar LeBron James’ future with the team was slightly in question as James entered the last year of his contract with the team. But it looks like James will be staying in Los Angeles.
James met with the Lakers last week to discuss a potential contract extension, but the two sides were unable to strike a deal at the time. However, ESPN’s Dave McMenamin reported on Friday that James and the Lakers were likely to agree on an extension in the near future.
“All signs point towards both sides looking to extend their partnership together,” McMenamin said on NBA Today on Friday.
McMenamin said James could pursue a brief one-year extension with the Lakers, allowing him to keep all of his options open following the 2023-24 season.
