Rob Pelinka, GM of the Los Angeles Lakers.
The Los Angeles Lakers will discover if LeBron James intends to stay with the team in the coming months. He is currently eligible for a contract extension, but hasnt given the team any assurances. LeBron doesnt want to leave Los Angeles, but he may have to do so if he wants to win.
According to Yahoo Sports, LeBron and his agent met with Darvin Ham, head coach of the Lakers, and vice president of basketball operations Rob Pelinka to discuss the situation in the teams and LeBrons' eligibility for a contract extension.
Pelinka and head coach Darvin Ham met with James and his agent Rich Paul, the CEO of Klutch Sports earlier this week. The 37-year-old is expected to have a $97.1 million, a two-year extension.
While the topic of contracts was discussed, league sources said the hour-long meeting primarily focused on making informed informed decisions and determining how to avoid a repeat of last season's epic failure.
LeBron plays a key role in assembling their rosters, but nothing appears to be reaching them. The str is reportedly pushing for Kyrie Irving to be ccording with Mrc Stein. Although it is unclear whether the tht will be observed, Pelink did mke firm commitment.
Pelink expressed his desire for Jmes to retire his Lker, ccording to sources, and pledged to give him every gear he needs to do to compete for the chmpionship ech yer he has served with the item.
