Whereas the Lakers have already made one good splash by purchasing and selling for Russell Westbrook on draft evening, they're no longer carried out reshaping their roster appropriate but and tons of well-identified veterans are rumored to have an ardour in joining forces with Westbrook, LeBron James and Anthony Davis.
In response to Brad Turner of the Los Angeles Occasions, old ahead Carmelo Anthony is acceptable "ready on a call" from Los Angeles front office as soon as free agency formally opens on Monday evening.
