AP: LeBron gets extension

LOS ANGELES — LeBron James has agreed to a two-year, $97.1 million contract extension through the 2024-25 season with the Los Angeles Lakers, a person with knowledge of the deal told The Associated Press on Wednesday.

The person spoke on condition of anonymity because James and the Lakers haven’t yet announced the league-maximum deal, which includes a player option that would keep the second-leading scorer in NBA history with the Lakers past his 40th birthday in December 2024.

James is headed into the final year of his most recent contract with the Lakers, who signed the four-time NBA Most Valuable Player and four-time league champion in July 2018. The new deal means the 18-time All-Star will make $46.7 million this season.

PGA players have meeting

WILMINGTON, Del. — Tiger Woods showed up for a private meeting of top PGA Tour players dressed in jeans and a long-sleeved plaid shirt. By the sound of his impact, he might as well have been wearing a Sunday red shirt.

“I think it’s pretty apparent that whenever we all get in the room, there’s an alpha in there,” Rory McIlroy said Wednesday. “And it’s not me.”

Exactly what came out of the Tuesday night meeting is more of a mystery, even down to the number of players in attendance. The purpose was to unify, not only against the threat of a rival LIV League funded by Saudi money, but shoring up any weaknesses in the tour.
