Magic Johnson was brought on board to lead the Lakers’ basketball operations department with the belief that he would be able to land a major star and he has delivered on that promise. Not only has Johnson proven himself and general manager Rob Pelinka as well, but he’s also validated Jeanie Buss’ decision to oust her brother Jim and longtime GM Mitch Kupchak from their roles.

The move paid off in an enormous way. On the show, Trevor Lane, Corey Hansford and Hannah Kulik discuss what James’ arrival means for the Lakers as well as where their salary cap situation stands at this point. What moves will be coming next?

They also analyze the additions of Lance Stephenson, Javale McGee, and the return of Kentavious Caldwell-Pope on one-year deals, and what they mean for the Lakers’ plans.
