Podcast: Should the Lakers be active during the transaction window?

The Lakers already have a full roster, but that doesn’t necessarily mean they’re done making moves.

Before the NBA restarts its season July 30, teams will be allowed to make a few final tweaks to their rosters in what has been described as a “transaction window.” During the transaction window, which is expected to take place from June 22 to July 1, teams will be able to shuffle their rosters around for the homestretch in Orlando.

The Los Angeles Lakers have a full, 17-man roster, which includes 15 players on guaranteed contract and two players on two-way contracts. Those 17 players will likely be the players that the Lakers take with them to Orlando, but with a championship in their grasp, they’ll leave no stone unturned.

On today’s episode of “Can U Dig It?”, co-hosts Jacob Rude and Christian Rivas talked about the options the Lakers have with their roster, which players will be available, and whether or not any of the remaining free agents would move the needle for them.

They also talked about the tentative dates for the NBA season, and the risk involved with trying to rush a season after a four-month suspension. According to Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN, teams will start training camp on July 9, which is just three weeks before the season restarts. Is that really enough time? I guess we’ll find out sooner rather than later.
