Spin excitations of overdoped La$$_{2-x}$$Sr$$_{x}$$CuO$$_{4}$$ ($$0.25 leq x leq 0.30$$) have been studied by neutron scattering utilizing triple-axis and time-of-flight spectrometers. Low-energy excitation spectra ($$omega leq 10$$ $$sim$$meV) for all of the superconducting samples show a maximum around $$omega = 6$$ meV with a maximum value of dynamic spin susceptibility $$chi''(omega)$$ that decreases linearly with ${it T$_{rm c}$}$ as doping increases. The magnetic scattering cross section finally disappears at $$x=0.30$$, coincident with the disappearance of bulk superconductivity. Time-of-flight measurements for $$x=0.25$$ and $$0.30$$ shows markedly suppressed magnetic scattering intensities at intermediate energies (20$$leq$$$$omega$$$$leq$$80$$sim$$meV) in contrast to those of the stripe-ordered La$$_{1.875}$$Ba$$_{0.125}$$CuO$$_{4}$$. These facts imply a cooperative correlation between the dynamic incommensurate state and the superconductivity.
