According to Brian Windhorst of ESPN (H/T RealGM), the Lakers are being linked to DeAndre Jordan because of the belief he could be had on a cheaper deal and due to the fact that Jordan wants to return to Los Angeles.

Unless something really odd happens in the next six weeks, Anthony Davis will become a Laker. I think they're going to have to use their money on perimeter players. Derek Fisher, Robert Horry and Kurt Rambis, among others, all say hi.

Here's why he can contribute to a team that will hopefully leave us with tons of sweet memories.

The Lakers are showing interest in three veteran centers who could help bolster their depth entering the 2019-20 season.

The Idaho Department of Health and Welfare's website has more information about West Nile Virus and how it can be prevented. In 2018, 104 serious illnesses were reported, along with 9 deaths related to the illness in MI .

As it now stands, the Lakers will have $23.7 million in cap space following the Anthony Davis trade on July 6, but there are paths to getting to the max-contract slot.

Lopez is coming off a season in which he shot 36.5 percent with the Bucks.

Jordan also has ties to Los Angeles as he played 10 seasons with the Clippers before spending one with the Mavericks and one with the Knicks, where he averaged 11 points in 69 games last season. Vucevic has wanted to stay there.

It is expected that Vucevic would command a max contract, which means that he's eligible to sign a five-year, $189.7 million deal with the Magic or a four-year, $140.6 million deal with another franchise such as the Lakers - which would mean an annual salary of roughly $35 million. In the modern National Basketball Association, it seems like Lopez would be a much better fit for Los Angeles moving forward but they could certainly use the rebounding and defensive toughness that Jordan has consistently provided throughout his career. He's reportedly working on a new contract with Orlando, but if that doesn't happen, there's a possibility he could end up in Los Angeles.
