Forget Cleveland — LeBron James’ squad is putting down roots right here in La La Land.

James’ agent and close bud Rich Paul has snagged a Beverly Grove pad for $3 million, on the heels of James buying his own digs in Brentwood just 10 months ago.

The NBA MVP’s business manager, Maverick Carter, also bought a home in Hollywood Hills for $3.5 million around the same time, the L.A. Times reported.

New Vision R.E. & Investments’ Zack Blum was the most recent transaction’s listing agent, while Jaime Cuevas of Compass represented Paul.

Paul’s new residence in the Melrose district spans just under 4,000 square feet and has five bedrooms. The newly built, modernist house features hardwood floors, a floating staircase, a chef’s kitchen, six bathrooms and an office. The master bedroom suite has its own balcony.

James bought his Ken Ungar-designed, 9,440-square-foot Brentwood mansion last November for $21 million. [LAT]Cathaleen Chen
