Will LeBron James Sign Contract Extension With the Lakers?

  Will LeBron James Sign Contract Extension With the Lakers? The 37-year-old is eligible to sign an extension tomorrow, but there's no upside to getting a deal done this early. View the original article to see embedded media. LeBron James is eligible to sign a contract extension with the Lakers on Thursday.Just don’t hold your breath for that announcement.James seems unlikely to sign an extension this week. Or the week after. Or the week after that. Why? For starters, he doesn’t have to. Thursday isn’t a deadline. It’s the first day James can sign the extension. The last day? June 30th. Which means James has roughly ten months to agree to a new two-year, $97.

There are few givens in the NBA, so I would hesitate to label it as such. But all indications are that the Lakers are Irving’s top destination if he leaves Brooklyn, whether it’s via a trade between now and the February 2023 trade deadline, or in free agency next summer, when Westbrook’s salary will be off the Lakers’ books.

More on this storyline

Here’s what Irving wrote on Twitter in response to a tweet saying that he’s “gassing up” ahead of the new season: “I don’t ever have to Gas myself up. I am going on my 12th year in the best league in the world and I am only getting better. When I am 38 years old and have time to reflect on my career truly, I will do so, but until then, I am enjoying every moment. And no I won’t be done playing basketball at 38 years old lol, I’ll be in leagues all over the world playing and teaching the youth all that was taught to me.” -via EuroHoops.net / July 30, 2022 “Kyrie Irving opted in with the full intent of playing out next season as a Brooklyn Net,” Charania said on the Pat McAfee Show. “In his mind, he’s playing next year in Brooklyn with or without Kevin Durant.” -via FOXSports.com / July 30, 2022 Kyrie Irving: I don’t ever have to Gas myself up.

Another report Nets now plan to keep Kyrie Irving this season .
It's not that Irving playing for the Nets is anybody's first choice, it's just nobody has a better option. Brooklyn would trade Irving tomorrow if some team blew them away with an offer. The problem is that the Lakers were the only team seriously chasing Irving, and their offer — two first-round picks plus Russell Westbrook — did not move the Nets (and would have to involve a third team taking on Westbrook that team will want picks or good young players). Irving reportedly was willing and maybe eager to play for the Lakers, but see the previous sentence for that not happening.
