The Los Angeles Lakers are getting ready for free agency to begin on July 1st and the LN Podcast breaks down some intriguing options for Magic Johnson and Rob Pelinka to chase after. We brought in LN’s own Hannah Kulik to help sort through all of the candidates and came up with some interesting names, including a number of guards who could backup Lonzo Ball.

We also analyze the NBA Draft and grade each selection. Ball is an easy one, but Kyle Kuzma was another story! With plenty of young players in town but no star talent, we discuss the Paul George rumors and weigh in on why it’s getting less likely that the Lakers will be able to bring him in this summer…which may not be a bad thing at all.

All that and much more on this episode of the LN Podcast:
