By the time he announced, just over $900 million worth of new deals had been agreed upon, based on figures confirmed to the AP by people involved in the various decisions - nearly all of that money getting committed by teams in the West. The Lakers would still have a bit of maneuvering to do to sign two max players.

James will make $35.65 million next season.

National Basketball Association star Lebron James has decided not to pick up the player option on the past year of his deal with the Cleveland Cavaliers and will become a free agent, according to ESPN.

The bonanza started Saturday night when Durant chose to sign a two-year, $61.5 million deal with the stay with the two-time defending champion Golden State Warriors, one where he'll make $30.5 million this season.

That's with the Lakers having nearly $50m in cap space to add experience to their crop of young talent in the likes of Brandon Ingram, Kyle Kuzma and Lonzo Ball.

Given how deep the Warriors are, James is going to have a tough task going through them to get to the Finals again. Capela is a restricted free agent, which means the Rockets can match any offer the Lakers or another team make. Now that he's in Los Angeles, that's impossible.

Leonard wants out of San Antonio, and there have been some questions about whether he wants to play with James.

James Rodriguez celebrated being back in the starting line up by setting up Yerry Mina to give Colombia the lead at the break. Rodriguez bagged two assists on Sunday night but his pass to find Cuadrado for the third goal was truly a piece of artistry.

James isn't planning any more comments and there won't be a welcoming press conference or celebration in Los Angeles, a person familiar with his plans said Sunday night on the condition of anonymity.

As things stand now, Smith's projections have the Lakers with $59.96 million of cap space for 2019. That put them in the running to sign not just James, but potentially another top free agent. That one year option is the one he has made a decision to knock back. The family has two homes in California and James' oldest son, LeBron James Jr., has always been rumored to be taking his own talents to basketball powerhouse Sierra Canyon High School in Chatsworth, California.

However it shakes out in California and through the rest of the NBA, James's decision Sunday will affect far more franchises than just the Lakers and Cavaliers.

The Los Angeles Lakers would certainly have the capital to sign Cousins, especially after Paul George opted to re-sign with the Oklahoma City Thunder rather than make his expected move to Los Angeles.

As has been the case in the past, James didn't have enough help as the Cavs were swept, dropping him to 3-6 in the NBA Finals - a record sometimes used to compare him to Michael Jordan.

The $75K a week mansion James is staying in while he decides his future.
