The Los Angeles Lakers could be in a bit of hot water after the Indiana Pacers filed tampering charges against them that allege Magic Johnson had improper contact with Paul George.

Lakers Nation Podcast host Trevor Lane and cap expert Eric Pincus of Bleacher Report, Basketball Insiders, and the Hollywood Hoops pod discuss the situation and dig into what the ramifications could be for their future plans.

Additionally, we discuss what it’s going to take for the Lakers to open up enough salary cap space for two max contracts next summer, which won’t be an easy task. Plus, will LeBron James ever be accepted in Los Angeles, and who should get the 15th and final roster spot?
