LeBron Reportedly Had 1 Main Reason For Signing Extension
 LeBron James sur- prised the NBA world last- Wednesday when news broke of the Los Angeles Lakers star agreeing to a two-year exten- sion.
James has agreed to a two-year, $85M contract ex- tension with Los Angeles.
The two-year contract ex- tension runs through the 2022-23 season. James, who turns 36 on Dec. 30, will be in Los Angeles for three more seasons, at least, barring a shocking trade.

Clippers Sign Nicolas Batum, Reggie Jackson And Waive Joakim Noah
The Los Angeles Clippers made some moves on Tuesday night as they set their roster ahead of the upcoming sea- son.
The Clippers signed Nico- las Batum, who recently cleared waivers after being let go by the Charlotte Hornets to make room for Gordon Hay- ward. Batum, 31, averaged 3.6 points and 4.5 rebounds in 22.9 minutes per game last season.
The Clippers are also re- signing Reggie Jackson, who signed with the team in February after being waived by Detroit. Jackson averaged 9.5 points and 3.2 assists in 23.1 minutes per game for the Clippers last season.
The team also waived Joakim Noah, who ap- peared in five games after being signed late in the sea- son. Noah, who played 13 seasons in the NBA and made two All-Star teams, is ex- pected to retire.
Adding Batum will give the Clippers some versatility and depth, while Jackson al- lows them to retain someone behind Patrick Beverley.
are coming off an NBA Finals win over the Miami Heat. The 2020-21 season is scheduled to begin in mid-December.
However, ESPN NBA in- sider Brian Windhorst re-
ports that LeBron has one main reason for signing the extension: Financial security.
LeBron remains one of the league’s best players, but he’ll be 38 in the final year of his extension. He’s now guar- anteed himself max money at an age most NBA players don’t hit.
Anthony Davis, mean- while, remains a free agent, though he’s widely expected to re-sign in Los Angeles. The All-NBA big man is reportedly working through the details of the best extension possible.
 LiAngelo Ball Agrees To Contract With Pistons
  The possibility of all three Ball brothers playing in the NBA at once remains alive.
LiAngelo Ball has agreed to sign a one-year, non-guar- anteed deal with the Detroit Pistons.
Ball, the younger brother of New Orleans Pelicans star Lonzo Ball and older brother of first-round draft pick LaMelo Ball, signed with the Oklahoma City Blue oftheNBAGLeagueasa practice player late last year. He was then added to the
team’s actual roster via a waiver claim in March, but the Blue played just one game due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Ball did not appear in the game.
