Lakers Free Agent Rumors: Tracking all the players the team has met with

New, comments

There are going to be tons of Lakers free agent rumors this summer, and we’ll be tracking all of them here.

Lakers free agent rumors are one of the most fun (and sometimes, exhausting) parts of the offseason. We all know the team is going to be linked to Paul George and LeBron James at some point, but what about the rest of the 2018 free agency class that Los Angeles will need to fill out its roster?

This is the place to keep track of all of it. Silver Screen and Roll will obviously be on top of James and George’s decisions here as well, but this page is also worth bookmarking in order to have an updated list of every player the Lakers have reportedly met with, how those meetings went, and links to information on everything going on around Los Angeles during free agency.

The Lakers have a young core of Lonzo Ball, Brandon Ingram, Josh Hart and Kyle Kuzma (or, at least they did when this article was first written), but most of the rest of the roster is up for grabs.

Will James and/or George fill some of those holes? Will Julius Randle be back, or will he sign a contract somewhere else? Will the Lakers match it? What about veterans to fill out the end of the bench, or fliers to take on undervalued young players? The Lakers will almost assuredly be involved in rumors for all of those players and player types, so allow this page to serve as a reference point where you can consolidate all of the reports instead of always having to remember who the team has met with yourself.

The list begins below, but as always, for instant updates on who the team is signing or pursuing, make sure you’re following us on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram, where we’ll be posting information throughout the offseason.

Now, on to the list!
