Whether or not the Los Angeles Lakers should try to make a major splash this offseason is one of the biggest debates surrounding the team right now. Should the Lakers trade for Paul George, or should they wait and hope to recruit him in free agency the following summer?

Until Thursday, the team’s thoughts on the matter could mostly only be gleaned from anonymously sourced reports, but now Lakers president Magic Johnson has weighed in, saying he wants to keep cap space for the summer of 2018 (when George just so happens to be a free agent).

Co-hosts Harrison Faigen and Anthony Irwin gave their thoughts on this latest development, as well as the most recent comments from LaVar Ball, on the newest episode of Locked on Lakers.
