The Los Angeles Lakers are usually more active in free agency than they’re expected to be in 2017, but with the team conserving their “sacred” 2018 cap space they’ve been a bit quieter than normal.

The team also doesn’t have a whole lot of roster space to work with if it plans to sign all four of its 2017 draft picks, as they would leave the roster at 13 players even with the front office waiving Tarik Black on the first day of free agency before his salary became guaranteed for the 2017-18 season. Teams can carry 15 players in the regular season, along with two two-way contracts.

However, “quiet” doesn’t mean “completely inactive.” The Lakers are still reaching out to various free agents on the market as we enter the summer, and Silver Screen and Roll will be attempting to track every (reputable) rumor below.
