Los Angeles Lakers head coach Luke Walton believes meshing with the newly signed LeBron James is key to the team’s success moving forward.

In an interview with The Athletic’s Bill Oram on Tuesday, Walton said: ”Every case is unique and different. I have to build a relationship with LeBron; that’s going to be a top priority for me. … Getting to know him and having him get to know me, and then we go from there.”

LeBron officially signed a four-year, $153 million deal with the Lakers on Monday.
