The Lakers lost in the competition with the Clippers about Leonard! However, the Lakers quickly adjusted their strategy and signed 7 players in 24 hours to see their decisive results!
In the process of recruiting Leonard, James used the phrase "The Lakers are your team two years later" and later Magician Johnson talked to the Leonard team in his personal capacity. The Lakers used Leonard to do their best!
But according to NBA reporter Chris Carter, this is contrary to Leonard’s original intention! "He has led the team to win the championship, why should you hold the thighs of LeBron James and Davis?"
In fact, the Lakers quickly reminisced! (And NBA reporters said that Leonard had already made a decision. He pretended to hesitate in Los Angeles just to make time to contact the Clippers and let the latter contact Paul George.
At least until James leaves the Lakers, Leonard will not show any attitude towards the Lakers! Lakers general manager Pelinka quickly made the decision, only signed less than 24 hours to sign 7 players to create a redemption team!
Within 24 hours of Leonard's signing of the Clippers, Lakers General Manager Pelinka announced that 2 years of 30 million signed Danny Green, 2nd year salary signed Rondo, McGee got 2 years 8.2 million, 2 years 1600 Wan signed the Pop, Cook 2 years 6 million, Caruso 2 years 5.5 million. Even the Warriors center Cousins was taken away by the Lakers for 3.5 million a year!
The Lakers decided to quickly strengthen the shooters outside the three-point line. The regular three-pointers are: Caruso 48.0%, Danny Green 45.5%, Cook 40.5%! (Last season, the Lakers made 33% of their three-pointers and the second-lowest in the league)
