CONCLUSION – Could a Lakers star leave? A franchise ready for action!

Despite a difficult regular season, the Lakers hope to confirm their progress once in the playoffs, after a probable play-in.

The franchise remains confident about its squad, even if a player could leave the ship this summer…

With better results in recent weeks, like these 9 victories in the last 10 games, the Lakers are doing much better in the West.

Not yet enough to get a direct ticket to the playoffs, but their place in play-in seems safe today. Rather good news for Darvin Ham’s men, although they will have to face a serious candidate.

Beyond LeBron James and Anthony Davis, the Angelinos can count on many interesting players and X factors.

We obviously think of D’Angelo Russell, who seems to have gained confidence in recent weeks.

Will he be able to confirm in the postseason and help his team win? This remains a real enigma to this day.

A possible major departure from the Lakers?

After all, D-Lo collapsed last year against the Nuggets, to the point where some called for him to leave in a trade.

The person concerned could just leave the ship this summer if he refuses his player option, with a team ready to try his luck: the Magic.

The organization is looking for a true point guard ahead of Cole Anthony and Jalen Suggs, and Russell is a lead.

Jovan Buha (The Athletic) : “Orlando is the team. In talking to people on the Lakers, also outside of it, Orlando is probably the team I’m most worried about as a suitor for Russell. »

The good news is that the leader has confirmed his desire to extend his adventure in the City of Angels, especially after a great season.

But is a financial agreement possible? That’s yet another question, and the Magic could take advantage of this to make a higher offer.

The future of the 28-year-old leader remains undecided in any case.

Author of a good season, D’Angelo Russell will probably be greedy when ordering his next salary.

Are the Lakers ready to do anything to keep him? Let’s say that doubt is allowed.
