In the latest episode of the Laker Film Room Podcast, Pete and I discuss the Lakers signing LeBron James in free agency and their subsequent moves to bolster the roster through Monday.
We first go in on all things LeBron — how the length and nature of his contract is important, how he impacts the team on the floor, and how his presence might impact team building and roster construction due to the stage of his career he’s currently in.
We then go over the team’s signings on Sunday and Monday, one by one. First up is our thoughts on the Lakers bringing back Kentavious Caldwell-Pope, then JaVale McGee’s addition, our thoughts on Lance Stephenson, and then, of course, what adding Rajon Rondo means.
We close the pod talking about the Lakers renouncing Julius Randle’s rights as a restricted free agent, his career as a Laker, and our general feelings about seeing him depart for the Pelicans.
