LeBron James is heading to the Los Angeles Lakers on a four-year, $154 million deal.

Jeff Sherman, the Westgate Las Vegas SuperBook Manager, released updated odds for next year's NBA Championship. In the four seasons that comprised James' second stint with the team that drafted him in 2003, the Akron native led the Cavs to four straight NBA Finals appearances.

James is leaving his home state of OH after taking the Cleveland Cavaliers to four-straight NBA Finals appearances and an NBA title victory. The Cavaliers' odds have fallen to 500/1. ESPN reported shortly after the James news that Leonard wants to be a Laker, though those trade talks have not progressed, according to multiple outlets.

Klutch Sports Group, his management representation, tweeted a short statement on Sunday afternoon.

However, he had endured frustration with the Cleveland Cavaliers, culminating in this season's clean sweep defeat by the Golden State Warriors in last month's NBA Finals.

James was on a plane that flew into Van Nuys Airport near Los Angeles on Saturday.

The media frenzy surrounding James' whereabouts since then has been simply ridiculous. The Lakers have open spaces and they headline almost every conversation that goes along the lines of LeBron James and or Paul George.

James gave Cleveland something to remember in his final season.

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 unfairly used to compare him to Michael Jordan.

It only gets more wild from there though as a fan posted video appeared to show James' vehicle, closely tailed by a black van carrying his luggage.

He most recently took the Cleveland Cavaliers to the National Basketball Association finals against the Golden State Warriors where the Warriors won in a four-game sweep.
