    Default Lakers 2021-2022 Thread (Russell Westbrook Hero Ball Edition)

    I stopped making posts early last season due to the lack of interest, but I'll start one last thread and see where it goes.

    Free agency this week and the Lakers have remade the roster.

    Players Returning

    LeBron James
    Anthony Davis
    Marc Gasol
    Talen Horton-Tucker

    Superstar Joining the Team for Now Until He Asks for a Trade Yet Again

    Russell Westbrook

    Former Superstar Joining the Team Cause He's Chasing a Title

    Carmelo Anthony

    Former Lakers Coming Back

    Dwight Howard
    Trevor Ariza
    Wayne Ellington
    Kent Bazemore

    New Free Agent Signings

    Malik Monk
    Kendrick Nunn

    Players Bidding Adieu
    Kyle Kuzma
    Alex Caruso
    Markieff Morris
    Andre Drummond
    Montrezl Harrell
    Wesley Matthews
    Alfonzo McKinnie
    Ben McLemore

    Roster is pretty full. There was some talk of bringing Danny Green back too, but I think not now. Dennis Schroder is still out there. Could be re-signed and kept or traded in a sign and trade.

    The team is really old, but I do like the Monk and Nunn signings and I've always had a soft spot for Ellington because of what happened to his dad the first time he was with us.

    I've read that the Lakers' luxury tax bill is going to be over $40 million. (Still paying $5 million to Luol Deng too.) When AEG sold its share of the team, the Lakers were valued at $5 billion, so the Buss family can afford it.
