There's still an outside chance that Magic Johnson and the Lakers could work out a trade with the San Antonio Spurs for Kawhi Leonard. This was immediately followed by the announcement that Rajon Rondo agreed to a one-year, $9 million deal with the Lakers. His goal is to surpass LeBron James, not to help LeBron win more rings.

"Lonzo's not 6-1 or 6-2 like Kyrie".

"Until my boys go ahead and take over all of that", Ball continued. With the addition of LeBron, the Lakers are instantly back in the championship picture.
