2019 NBA Free Agency is just days away from starting and even after trading for former New Orleans Pelicans star Anthony Davis, the Lakers still have their eyes on landing another big free agent. Can the Los Angeles Lakers land Jimmy Butler away from the Philadelphia 76ers? The Houston Rockets are in hot pursuit of him as well but can he resist playing with Davis and LeBron James? The Charlotte Hornets are trying to retain their star player in Kemba Walker, if the Lakers miss out on Butler, could they land the point guard? Los Angeles had to trade away two key pieces of their young core in Lonzo Ball and Brandon Ingram to the Pelicans, how will they fill out their roster with the Lakers cap situation so tight?
JJ Redick is 35 years old now and could be interested in returning to L.A. to try to win the 2020 NBA Finals with LeBron, Davis and Kyle Kuzma. Patrick Beverley is a free agent who wouldn’t require the max, should the Lakers look to steal away the former Clippers and Thunder guard to fill in Lonzo Ball’s absence? Pacers wing Bojan Bogdanovic and guard Darren Collison are both players who could fill a big need for the Lakers and wouldn’t cost them the max contract, could they join Los Angeles? Could the Lakers look at some of their cheapest options in NBA free agency this summer like having Rajon Rondo return after a injury-filled 2018-2019 NBA season?
