Lance Stephenson follows LeBron James to the Lakers

LeBron James

Just today, Russian Federation knocked off Spain, LeBron James announced his intentions to sign with Los Angeles Lakers and now, LeBron's long-time playoff foil Lance Stephenson is following him to Hollywood.

Lance Stephenson is joining the Lakers.

When James previously signed as a free agent with the Miami Heat, he joined Dwyane Wade and Chris Both to form a superstar trio, likewise, Kevin Love joined James in his return to the Cavaliers.

Update 2: Because the Lakers have signed Caldwell-Pope to a one-year, $12 million deal, they might be too cash strapped to sign Cousins.

Once James committed to the Lakers, Stephenson was a top player on the team's priority list.

With a roster that looked incapable of knocking off Golden State, he was widely believed to be headed to L.A., where he owns two homes and has a burgeoning production company, SpringHill Entertainment.

They're putting together packages for The Baltimore Sun , and another group is putting together packages for the Capital Gazette . Two law enforcement sources said his fingerprints appear to have been altered, making it hard to identify him that way.

James will make $25.65 million next season.

Unlike past free-agent decisions, James wasted no time in announcing his next move.

The Lakers had a large amount of cap space to work with. After bolting from Cleveland in 2010, he returned in an emotional homecoming four years later, determined to make the Cavs champions.

That comes following a season in which he played in just 18 games across three teams. We wish his kids, his wife Savannah, his mother Gloria, and LeBron himself nothing but the best in the years and decades ahead. Stephenson averaged 9.2 points per game on the Pacers last season. He thanked Cavaliers fans in an Instagram post, saying the city will always be his home.

His stay with the Cavaliers will best be remembered for 2016, when he rallied the Cavs from a 3-1 deficit in the finals to stun the Warriors.

Cleveland Cavaliers general manager Koby Altman spoke to both James and Paul on the phone when National Basketball Association free agency officially opened at 12:01 a.m. ET Sunday, sources told ESPN's Dave McMenamin.
