Could we see Zo back in purple and gold this offseason?
Four years ago, the Lakers overcame the lottery odds to land the No. 2 overall pick in the 2017 NBA Draft to draft Lonzo Ball. But in just a short time, the Lakers traded Ball to the New Orleans Pelicans in a package for Anthony Davis and went on to win the 2020 championship as a result.
Now, there seems to be a chance for a reunion. Marc Stein reported in his Substack newsletter that the Lakers are seeking out a playmaker that would allow LeBron James to spend more time at power forward and Anthony Davis to spend more time at center. He writes this:
"Expect to eventually hear of them searching for potential pathways, however obstacle-strewn they would be, to reacquiring restricted free agent-to-be Lonzo Ball."
Lakers desperately need a Ball handling point guard that can score and play alongside LeBron James and Anthony Davis. Lakers will be one of many teams looking for Lonzo's services in this free agency period.
