LeBron James will play with some really talented players in 2020-21 and he is super excited about the opportunity. The Los Angeles Lakers will have some of the best NBA players on the roster. Marc Gasol will be signing with the Lakers, and LeBron is more than excited about the opportunity.
Lakers general manager Rob Pelinka has brought Dennis Schroder, Wesley Matthews, Montrezl Harrell, and a few other players in Los Angeles.
Initial reports confirmed that Gasol would finalize his contract with the team in the next few days. The Bucks big man signed a two-year deal worth $5.3 million. This signing confirmed the rumors, and Shams Charania from The Athletic was among the first to report the big news.
The Lakers have added more depth to the front court, and LeBron took to his Instagram story to share his thoughts on Gasol’s signing.
Marc Gasol is signing with the Lakers to win a ring
Los Angeles has made a lot of changes this offseason. Harrell signed a two-year deal worth $19 million. Markieff Morris re-signed with the Los Angeles Lakers and will return to the big team for another season. Gasol will play with the reigning Sixth Man of the Year.
Gasol will step in as a replacement for Dwight Howard. The latter decided to sign a one-year deal worth $2.6 million with Philadelphia.
Los Angeles also worked with the back court. This offseason moves will be more than enough to replace Rajon Rondo and Danny Green. Schroder and Matthews are perfect players for the team. Schroder is a rising star, and LA could definitely use a 18.9 ppg scorer at point guard. Matthews will replace Green for a cheaper price.
The Los Angeles Lakers look much better than they used to in Orlando. They are definitely contenders and NBA analysts predict a great season for the Lakers. Players can win back-to-back titles, and the situation looks really good for the reigning champions.
Anthony Davis will re-sign a deal with the team, and his new deal will probably depend on LeBron. The king has a players option for 2021-22, and Davis may agree to a similar deal.
