Los Angeles Lakers superstar LeBron James’ offseason basketball tour will continue with a trip to Seattle’s CrawsOver Pro-Am on Saturday, according to the tournament’s host, three-time NBA Sixth Man of the Year winner Jamal Crawford.

A slate of four games will begin at 1 p.m. Saturday and admission is free.

LeBron will join All-Star Dejounte Murray and the top two picks of the 2022 NBA Draft, Seattle-native Paolo Banchero and Chet Holmgren. Holmgren played his only year of college basketball with Gonzaga while Murray played for the University of Washington before being drafted by the San Antonio Spurs 29th overall in 2016.

Last month, LeBron made a rare Pro-Am appearance alongside DeMar DeRozan at the Drew League in Los Angeles. The four-time champion scored 42 points and grabbed 16 rebounds in a 104-102 victory.

James last played in Seattle in 2007, when he was a member of the Cleveland Cavaliers. He logged 30 points, seven rebounds, and eight assists in a 101-96 loss to the Seattle Supersonics.

Yesterday, LeBron signed a two-year, $97.1 million extension, making the 37-year-old the highest-paid player in NBA history.
