Lakers make big roster moves; depth chart, tracker and the latest free agency updates

What are the Lakers looking like following a busy weekend? Here's a quick look at the depth chart, and the latest news on what else the front office is working on.

The Los Angeles Lakers have been active since the elite free agents of the summer signed elsewhere, moving on to veteran talents that should immediately help the team. Roy Hibbert was the first domino to fall, with the opportunity presenting itself after DeAndre Jordan joined the Dallas Mavericks. Mitch Kupchak and the front office followed that up with Sixth Man of the Year Lou Williams, and capped it off with the signing of Brandon Bass.

The Lakers have made moves to replace outgoing players like Ed Davis, Jeremy Lin, Carlos Boozer and Jordan Hill. What they've come out with on the other end looks like better talent, with the young core of D'Angelo Russell, Jordan Clarkson and Julius Randle taking center stage. Tag on a returning Kobe Bryant, and the Lakers look like a much better team. We'll have to wait and see how it all comes together on the court, but getting a chance to watch the Lakers' Summer League team starting July 10 is a great window into the future.

There could still be roster moves to come, too. The Lakers are engaged in trade discussions with several teams as teams crunch to get the most out of the busiest time of the year. What's the roster looking like right now? Here's a quick roster outline with a potential projected lineup.
