With most of the major names of free agency already making their decisions, the Los Angeles Lakers had the major players on their roster already figured out. This week, they filled in the rest of the holes.
The Lakers added a couple of new big men in Ed Davis and Carlos Boozer, while also bringing back a couple of their better wing players in Xavier Henry and Wesley Johnson. Locking up Ryan Kelly to a two-year contract rounded out the Lakers major moves this week.
Unfortunately, the team had to release Kendall Marshall to clear up all of the possible cap room. But now, with everything else done, fans everywhere await the naming of the team’s next coach.
