NBA Free Agency: Should the Lakers sign a small forward this summer?

What does the team need on the wing? The Los Angeles Lakers will enter free agency in July armed with cap space, but what position or players they should focus their resources on remains a matter of debate. Small forward wouldn’t seem to be an immediate area of need. Luol Deng is the Lakers highest paid player, and even though he’s probably a power forward at this point in his career, he gets most of his minutes on the wing due to the Lakers’ frontcourt logjam.

Lakers Free Agency: Magic Johnson wants to save future cap space for superstars like Paul George

This is great to hear. So far, so good. Fans of the Los Angeles Lakers are waiting with baited breath to see what direction Magic Johnson and Rob Pelinka take the organization. The offseason is still in the lottery-induced holding pattern, but Magic offered some clarity on his intentions. Some have voiced concern that the front office might opt for a big splash for the sake of a splash.
