We have officially hit a lull in the roster construction portion of the off-season. The Lakers had an eventful stretch from late June through the first week of July, adding players who will be key contributors to next year’s team.
For summary purposes, let’s run down the transactions:
- Drafted Brandon Ingram
- Drafted Ivica Zubac
- Signed Timofey Mozgov in Free Agency
- Signed Luol Deng in Free Agency
- Re-signed Jordan Clarkson
- Traded for Jose Calderon
- Re-signed Tarik Black
- Re-signed Marcelo Huertas
While not all of the contracts associated with these deals are officially signed (we’ll discuss this more in a bit), all of these agreements have been reported by credible sources. Add the players listed above with those who were already under contract and the Lakers have commitments to 14 players.
The question is, are they done?
