The Lakers have some seriously insane possibilities this summer.
The potential super team that could be created in the coming days or weeks is scary -- so scary, in fact, that the Lakers could potentially become the next Warriors-like dynasty in the NBA.
With LeBron, Kawhi, and possibly Paul George, the Lakers would gather tons of interest from vets just looking to win a ring, which already appears to be the case.
Several veterans have told me they'd settle for a minimum deal with the Lakers if they land LeBron James. All eyes will be on L.A. and very few teams have cap room this summer, so they'd have no trouble adding complementary pieces to fill out the roster: https://t.co/T7krjvPCDw— Alex Kennedy (@AlexKennedyNBA) June 29, 2018
Adding tons of veteran bench help along with the trio of potential superstars is exactly what the Dubs have been doing for a few years now. But it gets even more terrifying once you take the Lakers young guys, whoever they end up keeping if they make a deal with San Antonio, and add them into the equation, giving the potential Lakers squad a mix of stars, veterans, and young prospects.
With LeBron opting out of his deal with the Cavs, the possibility of him suiting up for the Lakers next season has increased.
LeBron James has informed the Cavs he won’t opt into his contract. This decision is favorable to the Lakers chances, hurts the Rockets chances and the Cavs remain firmly in mix.— Brian Windhorst (@WindhorstESPN) June 29, 2018
With free agency officially starting on July 1, questions like these will soon be answered. So tune in NBA fans, because the offseason drama is only just beginning.
