There is a war brewing between Lonzo Ball and the Lakers

Following confirmation on Sunday that LeBron James was going to be a Laker, the franchise went on to sign the likes of Lance Stephenson, Javale McGee, Rajon Rondo and Kentavious Caldwell-Pope on one-year deals. James did return in 2014 and led the Cavs to the 2016 NBA title, ending a 52-year sports championship drought for Cleveland, before departing for the Lakers in the wake of four consecutive NBA Finals appearances for Cleveland. As it now stands, it will be James surrounded by a young core, but Kawhi Leonard has maintained he wants the San Antonio Spurs to trade him to his hometown.

Ball was the Los Angeles Lakers' starting point guard for the majority of last season. To put the size of the number 23-shaped hole that has opened in OH into context, it is worth considering that last season the three-time National Basketball Association champion led the Cavs in points and assists and was third in rebounds.

"Lonzo makes everybody better, including (LeBron)", Ball said.

A lot of frightful contracts were signed, making money tight both previous year and this summer and Cousins says he wasn't getting offers.

Trump To Get Played By Putin?
Putin is known as a shrewd negotiator who some officials worry could exploit such a session and extract concessions from Trump. The president has called Mueller's probe a "witch hunt". "We want to strive for a better relationship", Stoltenberg said.

In 59 games last season, Love averaged 17.6 points per game, as well as 9.3 rebounds and 1.7 assists. He only signed for a year and for $12 million, but will give the Pacers a nice complement to Oladipo.

Another reason for James's willingness to sign a long-term deal with the Lakers is the team's proximity to Hollywood. Evans offers the same sort of skill set as Stephenson but at a higher level and without the on-court antics.

King James ended speculation about where he will play next season by inking a massive four-year, $154-million contract with the Lakers. The Raptors had the best record in the East this past season and are bringing back their core with the one thing that consistently stood in their way - James - now out of the picture. Having missed out on Paul George, the Lakers seem keen on acquiring Kawhi this summer. A team full of young talent, with no idea how to play in, or win big games is not exactly going to topple what is waiting for LeBron in the West.

The Los Angeles Lakers roster is starting to look very different than it did less than 24 hours ago.
