Los Angeles Lakers Front Office
What the Lakers seem have to done is start a layered approach -- finding low maintenance vets to complement burgeoning youth -- and given a young coach an opportunity to build a new culture from scratch. A lot of their success will hinge on how Luke Walton fares, but things are certainly looking more promising.
The Lakers have rebuilt in the past at a light-speed pace full of shortcuts and since thatís clearly not happening this time around, they've instead now shifted to signing players that are effectively human gauze to stop the bleeding.
The second round of the NBA draft is speedy and disorienting while feeling inconsequential but success stories like Jordan Clarkson and the Lakers certainly justifies the exercise.
