Good news for all the Laker fans out there as their superstar LeBron James has agreed to a contract extension to stay with the team. He will now make $97.1 million over the next two seasons, beginning in 2023. He has a player option in the final year, which is huge given the fact that 2024 is expected to be Bronny’s draft year. This allows LeBron the opportunity to go somewhere else and play with Bronny should he go someplace other than the Lakers.
