Per Broderick Turner of the Los Angeles Times, James has set up the workouts in Las Vegas from Sept. 22-26 with every member of the Lakers expected to take part:
"With eight new players on the Lakers' roster, James wanted to get together early because of a condensed training camp that includes a trip to China. James hopes they get to know one another's games in a closed environment in preparation for training camp and a rigorous 82-game schedule. After the practices, they will have team dinners."
Turner added each training session is expected to last two-and-a-half hours, and players will pay their own way to stay at a hotel in Las Vegas.
Entering his second season with the Lakers, James will be surrounded by a largely different cast than in 2017-18. Anthony Davis, Danny Green, DeMarcus Cousins, Avery Bradley, Quinn Cook and Jared Dudley are among the new players on the roster.
In the wake of a frustrating year with the Lakers and criticism from former Cavs general manager David Griffin in a Sports Illustrated story by Jake Fischer, James has vowed to reclaim his spot as the best player in the NBA:
The Lakers are hoping for big things in 2018-19 following a disappointing 37-45 record last year. Their trip to Las Vegas will be the first step in that process before they officially report to training camp in Los Angeles on Sept. 28.
