The 2018 NBA offseason is nearly upon us, and the Los Angeles Lakers rumors are starting to trickle in as speculation about the franchise’s future ramps up.
A few days are all that remain of the Los Angeles Lakers‘ 2017-18 season. While they didn’t make the playoffs like many fans had optimistically hoped for, it’s safe to say it was a wildly successful year that saw this club take numerous steps in the right direction.
The young core underwent exponential growth throughout the year, developing an exciting amount of chemistry along the way. Magic Johnson worked his magic, creating enough cap space to go after two max-contract players this offseason. All of the pieces are falling into place for the Lakers to make a return to relevance in 2018-19.
For now, though, let’s focus on the present. I know it’s fun to look ahead and imagine the possibilities that lie just out of sight. However, I think you’ll be fine if we rein it in for a second, taking a look at the rumors currently swirling around Laker Land.
Now I’ll admit these aren’t all juicy slices of deliciousness you tasted ahead of the trade deadline. Surprisingly, there’s also nothing about LeBron James in here — shocker, right? Still, as we inch ever closer to the offseason, it’s all information worth keeping in mind.
Now that we’ve got that all cleared up, let’s take a look at the latest rumors regarding the Lakers, Kawhi Leonard’s future and other pieces of information that could be of interest to you.
