The newest addition to the Los Angeles Lakers, Dion Waiters, talked about his relationship with LeBron James after the two played together in Cleveland.

Despite not seeing each other much, they kept a genuine relationship. The fourth overall pick of the 2012 NBA Draft revealed that the team welcomed him with open arms.

Per Dave McMenamin of ESPN:

“I mean, it’s always been a bond,” Waiters said when asked about his relationship with James. “Even when I left. We always see each other, we always showed love. So, nothing really changed. It’s just different teams. We don’t get to see each other as much, as often, but when we did it was always genuine. So, when I came here, like I said, they welcomed me with open arms.”

The former member of the Cleveland Cavaliers, Oklahoma City Thunder and Miami Heat has a career average of 13.2 points, 2.7 rebounds and 2.8 assists per game.

Waiters is expected to make his Lakers debut in the coming games.
