The Los Angeles Lakers are on an impressive run in the Las Vegas Summer League, winning three in a row and doing it with their defense. On this episode of the Lakers Nation Podcast from Las Vegas, we discuss standout players like Josh Hart, Svi Mykhailiuk, and Moe Wagner, who will all be expected to contribute to the team this season.
We dig into what Hart has done to become a leader, including making the decision to shut down Kevin Knox when the Lakers took on the New York Knicks. Hart’s name has popped up in a number of trade rumors but we discuss why the Lakers may need to hang on to him.
The Lakers have already made a number of free agent signing this summer, with LeBron James being the headliner. However, there has been real debate over how well Kentavious Caldwell-Pope, Rajon Rondo, Lance Stephenson, and JaVale McGee fit in with James.
We break down each player and what they can bring to the team, plus explain why the free agent who got away, Paul George, decided to spurn the Lakers.
All that and much more on this episode of the LN Podcast. To listen just click the player above.
