The Los Angeles Lakers have big plans for the summer of 2018, when they hope to land two star-level players like LeBron James and Paul George. However, it won’t be easy to clear enough salary cap space to sign both, and neither are likely to jump to Los Angeles unless another star will be joining them.

With that in mind, LN podcast host Trevor Lane is joined by cap expert Eric Pincus to explain what moves the Lakers will need to make in order to create cap space.

Plus, we discuss the tampering charges filed by the Indiana Pacers and what the punishment could be, and finish off the show by diving into the question of who will win the battle for the team’s final roster spot.
