Lakers News: Magic Johnson Called In For Carmelo Anthony Pitch Meeting

Shortly before free agency began, Magic Johnson shared on Twitter that he was going on his annual vacation. While there was a report that Magic would not be part of Carmelo Anthony’s pitch meeting, he actually called in according to ESPN’s Ramona Shelburne:

With Jim and Jeanie Buss, Mitch Kupchak, and James Worthy present at the meeting, the Lakers made a strong impression and are considered the Knicks’ biggest threat. While Anthony was expected to make his decision on Monday, it appears he will take more time with the emergence of Los Angeles as a destination.

For the Lakers, the franchise is awaiting the decisions of Carmelo Anthony and LeBron James before moving forward. With ample cap space, the Lakers have the luxury of signing one of these players to a max contract without having to move any salary.

If the Lakers are unable to sign either superstar, they do have a Plan B which includes players like Isaiah Thomas, Lance Stephenson, Greg Monroe, and Chandler Parsons. With three players under contract and two rookies in Julius Randle and Jordan Clarkson, it will be interesting to see what direction the team ultimately takes in free agency.
