LeBron James is a Laker. On Monday night the King signed his deal to officially become a Los Angeles Laker.

Initial reports suggested LeBron agreed to a four-year, $154-million contract with the Los Angeles Lakers. However, it now appears he lost $1 million off of that deal.

We're not sure if this is a typo or not, but ESPN's Adrian Wojnaroswki tweeted that LeBron signed his "four-year, $153 million" deal.

Did LeBron lose $1 million over the course of a week? Who knows.

Meanwhile, he's the official announcement from Klutch Sports.

With LeBron officially in L.A., he'll have to get past the Golden State Warriors in order to reach the NBA Finals and keep his streak of eight straight Finals appearances alive.

Los Angeles has been named as a possible destination for Carmelo Anthony if he receives a buyout from the Oklahoma City Thunder. The Lakers are still in the running for a Kawhi Leonard trade, as well.

Stay tuned for future free agency dominoes to fall.
