LeBron James supports Lakers courtside at Summer League game

LeBron James' Lakers Shorts Cost $500 & Sold Out Almost Immediately

Despite missing the 2016 Games, however, James said previous year that he would consider a return to play for Popovich on Team USA in 2020 and that the respected coach's presence "factors a lot" in his ultimate decision.

Walton says he's excited to be James' co-worker.

"He's about the team".

Walton is entering his third year on the sideline for the Lakers.

James made it known on July 1, at the start of the free agency period, that he would depart the Cavaliers for a second time and join the Lakers, ending months of frenzied speculation about the National Basketball Association superstar's next career move.

James averaged 27.5 points and 8.6 rebounds per game for the Cavs last season, with those numbers increasing to 34 points and 9.1 rebounds during Cleveland's run to the NBA Finals. The 38-year-old led the Golden State Warriors to a 39-4 record as interim coach in 2015-16 while Steve Kerr recovered from back surgery. He's the leader of our team.

Beyond that, James hasn't been active with Team USA lately, sitting out the 2016 Olympics in Rio de Janeiro as the team brought home a gold medal.

Dave McMenamin of ESPN brings word that, despite his inclusion on a 35-member roster list, James won't be present at UNLV's Mendenhall Center when things begin on July 25.
