Lakers Podcast: Luring Superstar Free Agents, And Should Kentavious Caldwell-Pope Be Re-Signed?
Kelley L Cox-USA TODAY Sports

The Los Angeles Lakers will be searching for superstar free agents this summer with a mountain of cap space at their disposal. The team has historically been built around some of the best that the NBA has to offer, but do they have to have one in order to return to the top?

The latest episode of the Lakers Nation Podcast takes a look at this issue, as host Trevor Lane is joined by our own Harrison Faigen and Anthony Irwin of Locked On Lakers.

Los Angeles has long been a Lakers town, but with so many other options in Southern Calfornia, is there pressure on the Lakers to claw their way back to the top sooner rather than later?

Plus, we discuss the impressive play of Kenatvious Caldwell-Pope, who has shot lights-out since the calendar turned to 2018. Should the Lakers consider re-signing him? Not only has his play on the floor been impressive, but Caldwell-Pope shares an agent with LeBron James, a connection that could come in handy when free agency begins.

In terms of cap space, keeping Caldwell-Pope could be problematic, but it’s possible that his play on the floor has simply been too good to part with.

Finally, we wrap things up by discussing Ivica Zubac, who hasn’t lived up to expectations following an impressive rookie campaign. Is it time to part ways with the big man, or can he bring back the skills that had everyone so excited last season?

All that and much more in this episode, just click the player above.
