With no less than 5 arrivals, in addition to a new coach, the Lakers have been active in recent months. However, the work is not finished in the City of Angels, as Jeanie Buss, the owner, has just confirmed. It promises a new movement, and probably a big one. The objective remains the same: give everything to win a new championship.
The Lakers have never hidden their ambition in recent weeks, namely to strengthen their workforce in order to win a new title. It’s a nice project that started in the City of Angels, with no less than 5 arrivals in the roster. Among them ? Lonnie Walker, who arrives from Spurs. We can also remember that Darvin Ham arrives on the bench, he who makes a strong impression among his peers.
Summer is far from over at the Lakers!
Clearly, this beginning of summer is relatively attractive for the Angelinos, even if there is still work in the weeks to come. Rob Pelinka still wants to sign an arrival, even without necessarily talking about Kyrie Irving. A version confirmed by Jeanie Buss in person, who hopes for movement in her team. The goal remains to aim for the title, and everyone wants to give themselves the means to do so.
We still need to fill this roster. I know Rob will go for any opportunity that comes his way to improve the squad. I know he will take a closer look. We choose this strategy because we want to return to the playoffs and claim the title. Nothing can surprise me for this summer. But a trade must be good, and not compromise our future.
A sentence intended for Irving? Maybe. Because if the interest is present to recruit the leader, the latter is not unanimous, especially since the Nets are greedy at the idea of giving up the star. We will have to see if an agreement is possible, but do not count on Pelinka to give in to the opposing demand, especially if the future of the Angelinos is found to be compromised in the very long term.
It’s up to Pelinka to make a choice, even if the Purple and Gold summer remains interesting. A man who can make a difference? The coach, Ham, very popular in the league. Buss is justly delighted by this choice:
I have great confidence in Darvin Ham. When I was able to meet my colleagues, many said to me: “You have signed a great coach. Or: “He worked with us, you made the right choice. “His reputation in the league brings a lot of pride, especially since people are really in awe of Ham. We were able to find a very good coach.
Between the first arrivals and Darvin Ham, the Lakers are already satisfied with their summer. But is it really enough to fight with the best for the title? We can have doubts, especially given the fiasco of last year. Now let’s wait to find out what Rob Pelinka will try.
