LeBron James must be playing the long game.

Since the Lakers have 14 players and may keep that last roster spot open, they have been focusing on head coach Frank Vogel's staff recently by adding assistant coach Quinton Crawford and shooting coach Mike Penberthy.

That's because in 2021, Giannis will be an unrestricted free agent and likely be the most consequential signing since Kevin Durant and Golden State.

Antetokounmpo appeared in just two National Basketball Association games last season, but in 40 G league contests, he averaged 10.6 points, 6.1 rebounds and 1.4 blocks.

Marvel then announced that Shang-Chi will make his first big screen appearance in Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings. During the Marvel panel, a logo was shown and it was reminiscent of the logo from Matt Fraction's run on the comic series.

Antetokounmpo appeared in all five of the Mavericks' Summer League games, averaging 5.8 points and 2.8 rebounds over 13.4 minutes per game.

The 24-year-old Kostas spent almost all of his rookie season with the team's G League affiliate, the Texas Legends, whom he averaged 10.6 points and 6.2 rebounds with over 40 games.

During the team's rebuilding process, they have heavily relied on the NBA Draft and the G League.
