Even though the Lakers are in rebuilding mode, Los Angeles Clippers coach Doc Rivers believes the Lakers are still a top destination for free agents.
"I think they're always going to be an option," Rivers said Friday before his team faced the Lakers at Staples Center. "I think the two teams in L.A. will always be an option for everyone else. You see the traffic every day, right? People like living here. Really. Despite the taxes, they still like living here. It tells you something, and the Lakers have a ton of money. So I think they're a free-agent destination for a lot of people."
The Lakers can open up as much as $59 million to spend on free agency.
They also have young pieces in DeAngelo Russell, Julius Randle, and if they keep this pace they will have a top tier pick in this draft. With the right development, this could be a nice young nucleus in need of a star. With 59 million dollars in cap space, the Lakers could offer two max contracts this summer.
