NBA: Los Angeles Lakers-Press Conference Robert Hanashiro-USA TODAY Sports

Now that Magic Johnson has stopped torching the Los Angeles Lakers, the fan base’s focus seems to have shifted to how the team can set itself up for next season. In both of today’s shows, the hosts answered questions on that topic and plenty others.

Silver Screen & Roll Podcast

Even after a wild week of front office drama, the Lakers still have a lot of unanswered questions about what they’ll do moving forward. We wanted to see which ones you want to know about most, so Sabreena Merchant and Harrison Faigen opened up a Twitter mailbag on the latest episode of the Silver Screen and Roll podcast. As expected, most of you are curious about what the team will do this summer.

The Lakers may not get a star in free agency, and in that case they need to have backup plans ready. Sabreena and Harrison also discussed which star they think the Lakers are most likely to get if one does come, if the team should sign long-term deals with free agents no matter what, whether L.A. should draft Darius Garland and much more. Plus, Sabreena had an interesting take on why locking up Brandon Ingram this summer would be a good idea, while Harrison isn’t completely sold that needs to happen just yet.
