NBA Insider Has Troubling Trade Update For Lakers Fans
Lakers fans looking for major changes after the team's 2-7 start might not want to hold their breathe, Stadium's Shams Charania says.
Speaking on the Lakers brass and any possible moves they might make to get back into the playoff hunt, Charania revealed:
As of now, Los Angeles only has two first-round picks the rest of this decade, in 2027 and 2029.
The Lakers brand has never really been to build through the draft but rather to lure superstar free agents to its historic franchise in one of the most beautiful cities the world has to offer.
That said, they haven't really done that in recent years. And outside of landing LeBron James,
who initially felt the pull of the city more so than the team itself, it's been a very rough go of it for one of the NBA's winningest brands.
