NBA: Miami Heat at Indiana Pacers Brian Spurlock-USA TODAY Sports

The Los Angeles Lakers have made one thing eminently clear with their words and actions since the season ended: they want a big overhaul, and they want it to happen in 2018.

That goal leaves the team looking to keep its cap clear in 2017, which puts the team in interesting spot entering free agency. How can the Lakers acquire talent to fit their needs without cutting into their “sacred” cap space?

To answer that question and plenty more listener queries, host Harrison Faigen was joined by Silver Screen and Roll Editor-in-Chief and “Main Brook Lopez Stan” Drew Garrison.

The two talked about potential under-the-radar options for the Lakers in free agency, whether or not the team should or will offer big one-year deals, and much more on the latest episode of Locked on Lakers.
