After a huge disappointment in LeBron James' first year wearing the Purple and Gold, Los Angeles Lakers were more aggressive as they upgraded their rosters in the 2018 NBA season. Despite their failure to reach a deal before the NBA February trade deadline, the Lakers managed to win the All-Star center, Anthony Davis, this summer by submitting a trade package with his Brandon Ingram, Lonzo Ball, Josh Hart, and numerous pieces of New Orleans Pelicans included. However, the Lakers finished their main target on the free agency market – the MVP Kawhi Leonard Finals.
After helping the Toronto Volunteers to win their first NBA championship title, Kawhi Leonard pushed his play plan for his home team, instead of creating “Three Three” with LeBron James and Anthony Davis on the Lakers, he decided to join in his Joint Staples The Center, Los Angeles Clippers. However, Lakers Head Coque Frank Vogel does not seem worried about them failing to put the third superstar on their roster. In an interview with Steve Aschburner in Irish NBA.com, Vogel trusted strongly that the Lakers have enough “pieces” to bring the Larry Trophy Brien home in the 2019-20 NBA season.
“We have the pieces to compete for a championship. To expect it to come together immediately, there may be some achievement. I'm sure there will be some gaps on the road. But we hope like this guys formation … there are a number of guys with a great resume, but they must learn each other. And they will have to learn each other quickly. Then we will be in the mix for the regular season and we will run ourselves for a fun rhythm. You never know how fast this process is to play. "

It is easy to understand why Coach Frank Vogel is very optimistic about the Lakers' chance to win the NBA championship title next season. While they failed to take the third superstar to their roster, the Lakers succeeded in LeBron James and Anthony Davis during the summer. After Leonard Kawhi signed with the clippers, the Lakers used his salary cap space to sign DeMarcus Cousins, Danny Green, Jared Dudley, Avery Bradley, Troy Daniels, and Quinn Cook.
They also gave some of their free agents back as Rajon Rondo, Kentavious Caldwell-Pope, JaVale McGee, and Alex Caruso. Following an injury by Cousins, the Lakers were immediately replaced by an unsecured contract to Dwight Howard. Howard may have an unpleasant history with the Lakers, but according to a previous article The Inquisitr, Coach Frank Vogel believes that the vintage center is now ready to fully accept its new role and is returning to Los Angeles with a different temperament.
