LeBron James might have finally found a co-star, just not the for the Los Angeles Lakers.
It's been well known that James has struggled to find NBA stars to be in "Space Jam 2" alongside him, but the King could have his co-star, and it isn't Lonzo Ball.
Warriors star Klay Thompson will join LeBron and others in "Space Jam 2," The Athletic's Shams Charania reported Wednesday.
Sources: Space Jam 2, starring LeBron James, is expected to feature key roles for Damian Lillard, Anthony Davis and Klay Thompson and WNBA stars Diana Taurasi and Nneka Ogwumike.

FOX Sports' Jason McIntyre reported less than two weeks ago that Thompson was "locked in" to star in the film.
It's doubtful this will have any bearing on Klay's upcoming free agency.
The Warriors star has been open about his love for the first movie, so it wouldn't be surprising to see him sign on to the sequel, even though Steph Curry won't be joining him.
Klay's debut on the silver screen, if it happens, is set for 2021.
