LaVar Ball Claims He Wanted Lakers to Trade Lonzo All Along

"I guarantee: Like I say again, it will be the worst move the Lakers ever did in their life and they will never win another championship", LaVar Ball told ESPN while at the Drew League on Saturday to watch his son LaMelo play. If it were up to a former Lakers legend, however, the spending wouldn't be done for Los Angeles.

It's always been reported that the Lakers aren't the No.1 choice for any top free agent. The deal is expected to be completed on July 6, leaving the Lakers with less than a full max slot.

The Philadelphia 76ers have some big decisions to make with Butler, Tobias Harris and JJ Redick all set to hit free agency.

With James and Davis as the cornerstones of the franchise, the Lakers still have room to add one more star in free agency. Philadelphia likely can't keep all three, though Butler might be their top priority after he was their best player in the postseason. This is, hopefully, something they were cognizant of when discussing the parameters of the deal.

Anthony is the sort of player that would likely sign for minimum contract, and there's been rumors tying the former Knicks star to James and the Lakers since his disastrous stint with the Houston Rockets a year ago.

Just having the chance to land someone such as Walker or Butler would be incredible for the Lakers.

Filling out the remainder of the roster could be troublesome, but there are always players willing to take less money to play for a contender.

Williamson looks like the most can't miss prospect since perhaps Anthony Davis, so the combination of him with this young trio as well as Jrue Holiday gives the Pelicans an outstanding foundation to build upon.
