Lakers News:LeBron James forges path forward with Lakers amid ‘productive’ contract talks


Los Angeles Lakers star LeBron James is working through an extension with the Lakers on his own time — and so far, it’s reportedly going well.

LeBron James is halfway through a two-year, $85 million contract with the Lakers, yet James and his camp have their eyes set on the future.

Even though James is signed on for the 2022-23 season at $44.5 million, that hasn’t stopped King James for seeking a king’s ransom for another year or two in Los Angeles.

As of Aug. 4, James is now eligible to sign a contract extension with the Lakers. While ESPN’s Dave McMenamin indicated that there is nothing “imminent”, he also reported that contract talks have begun between James and Lakers general manager Rob Pelinka.

Although there’s little to go on at this point, LeBron fans can rest assured that the contract talks were “productive” as the two sides seek to get a deal done.
