The Los Angeles Lakers revamped their entire roster this NBA offseason. There are only three players on the roster heading into the 2021-22 season, LeBron James, Anthony Davis, and Talen Horton-Tucker, that were on the roster when the 2020-21 season concluded.
James, who is entering his fourth season with the organization, is the longest-tenured player on the team. Roster overhauling is nothing new for James-led teams, and the Lakers are the latest example.
They are a veteran-laden squad that will be looking to make a deep run in the postseason. Russell Westbrook was acquired to be the team’s new point guard. Westbrook, the three players mentioned above, and Kendrick Nunn are the only players not playing this season on a veteran’s minimum deal.
Rob Pelinka went to work this offseason, convincing veterans to join the team with nothing more than minimum salaries and selling the chance to win a ring. It must have worked, as they added some solid players.
