LeBron James has played on three teams in his NBA career. Could there be a fourth when his contract with the Los Angeles Lakers is up?

James initially signed with the Lakers on a four-year deal in 2018. He was given a two-year extension worth $85 million in 2020.

Now, James is set to become a free agent following the 2022-23 season after making $44.4 million next year. This comes after scoring 30.3 points per contest. James might be playing the game at a high level, but it did not translate to team success.

The Lakers have been eliminated from postseason contention making it one of the most disappointing seasons in NBA history. Russell Westbrook was acquired in the offseason to join James and Anthony Davis.

If he decides to leave, there seems like a handful of teams James will actually want to play for. At this point, it might not be about winning.
