Some had expected the move to Los Angeles, where the OH native owns two homes.
Fans think that LeBron will return to the Cavaliers in 2022 as a free agent, to play alongside his son.
After successfully securing the biggest free agent on the market by remarkably sealing a deal with LeBron James, the Los Angeles Lakers are not wasting any time adding to their roster.
"Thank you Northeast Ohio for an incredible four seasons". "This will always be home".
James reportedly agreed to a four-year, $154 million deal with the team. The pair has had a history of notable exchanges, most memorably in the 2014 playoffs, when Stephenson was with the Pacers and James played for the Heat. After two championship seasons in Oakland, McGee posted on Twitter, "Thank you Dub Nation for two fantastic years".
Oklahoma City Thunder superstar Paul George was also reported to hop on to Hollywood before staying in OKC on a 4-year, $137 million deal.
Only the Golden State Warriors have shorter odds than the 16-time National Basketball Association champions, with the bookies giving the defending National Basketball Association champions 10/11 odds of retaining their title and becoming the first team since the Lakers in the early 2000s to win three consecutive championships.
LeBron James's net worth is believed to be about $400 million (£286 million), though his new contract with Los Angeles Lakers will likely boost that significantly.
Snoop is one of the Lakers' best-known supporters and shared an image of LeBron alongside some of the team's most legendary former players.
Hours after the announcement, the Cavaliers issued a statement from chairman Dan Gilbert, thanking James for leading the team to the National Basketball Association championship in 2016, calling it a title that "united generations of Clevelanders, both living and passed".
The sunny climes of California also hold much allure for James' high school sweetheart, business owner and interior designer Brinson, who according to one Bleacher Report story, has voiced her desire to live in L.A. full-time.
It's LeBron's first time venturing out west, but he joins an illustrious list of players who have donned the purple and gold. But Wojnarowski also tweeted on Sunday that Leonard truly wants to be a Laker.
There's a risk in waiting for Leonard, as the Lakers just saw this summer.
