“This is a historic moment for the Lakers, and we could not feel more grateful and honored,” Lakers General Manager Rob Pelinka said. “When LeBron James – a perennial NBA MVP and champion who is playing at the most astonishing levels of his career – chooses to join the Lakers, it serves as the ultimate validation for what we are building here. However, we all know that the work is not yet done. We will continue forward and do all that is necessary to achieve our shared obsession of bringing banner No. 17 to the world’s best fans – Lakers Nation.”

Iffe Lundberg stayed in Phoenix planning to play for the Suns in the NBA Summer League in Las Vegas, but he needed “security” for that to happen. Without a guaranteed deal, Lundberg headed back to Denmark ahead of the Suns beginning Summer League play Friday against the Los Angeles Lakers at Thomas & Mack Center.
“I didn’t want to risk playing in the Summer League without having some kind of security,” Lundberg told the Republic on Monday. “They didn’t want to give me that, so I went home. I can’t risk getting injured without having a deal. My family depends on me to provide for them.”
