    With a lot of one-year deals expiring the team should have plenty of cap room and will likely try to land some major free agents to team up with LeBron.

    Magic is out. Walton's on his last guaranteed year, IIRC.

    Plenty of drama ahead.

    Walton's out.

    Frank Vogel is in with "prominent" assistant coach Jason Kidd.

    Magic Johnson opens up on who he believes ‘betrayed’ him with the Lakers

    https://www.msn.com/en-us/sports/nb...im-with-the-lakers/ar-AABDqeN?ocid=spartanntp

    Back on April 25, just weeks after Magic Johnson stunned the NBA world by resigning as Los Angeles Lakers president - that was the infamous "I'm not gonna be here" press conference - the legendary former player tweeted "The truth will always come to light."

    On Monday, it appeared he was revealing what he was teasing and boy, did he deliver on that tweet.

    While appearing on ESPN's First Take, Johnson said that GM Rob Pelinka was the source of "betrayal" within the Lakers organization. Johnson claimed Pelinka said - behind Johnson's back - that Magic wasn't working hard enough and wasn't in the franchise's office enough:

    "If you're going to talk betrayal, it's only with Rob [Pelinka]."
