The Lakers retain their part and press on the others: Hachimura, Vincent, Reddish…

For the Lakers it is a market, like all the ones they have to face with LeBron James on the roster, which is presumed decisive. Time is running out on the court for one of the best players of all time, who at 38 continues to be a weapon of mass destruction (of those that do exist) in the NBA, and we must surround him properly. The last season led them to the Western Conference finals, where the Nuggets took revenge for 2020, and that means being very close to the final goal.. That is why the bullets of the first hours of the free agent market had to be spent with cunning. Before the dance began, they released Mo Bamba, Malik Beasley and Shaquille Harrison and already immersed in the market, Troy Brown and Dennis Schröder have left, but none of them were a priority. In the absence of seeing where for D’Angelo Russell, with whom a listening thread is maintained, everything is in order. This is how they have done it:

Rui Hachimura. He was one of two restricted free agents they were counting on to maintain a roster. The other is Austin Reaves, who has already been made a low offer (52×4) but on which they will be forced to match a higher offer (up to 100×4) that another team makes. In the case of the Japanese, he has gone straight to the point: 51 million for three seasons for the power forward. He grabbed the minutes from the substitutes, especially minutes without Davis, and earned the contract after going from very little on the Wizards to all on the Lakers with a healing trade. The fundamental axis of the rotation that Darvin Ham will want to put together.

Gabe Vincent. The Nigerian shooter has excelled in the Heat, again runners-up, with a self-confidence typical of the one that Erik Spoelstra inoculates his personal bets. Like Strus. Like Robinson. Like Martin. He is going to collect 11 million for each one of the three seasons that he has signed in the new contract. His ability to find places in attack from which to shoot, moving well without the ball and with increasing ease to shoot from anywhere, will give dynamism to an offense that with Reaves can now move freely and make the signing of Vincent still possible. most noticeable.

Cam Reddish. It’s already the other. Of those Zion and Barrett who left Duke in the 2019 Draft, he’s the one that’s gone astray. He has to meet again. He couldn’t be in the Hawks, nor in the Knicks. A melon to open on which LeBron, with whom he shares the forward position, should pay special attention. It’s two years at 4.6 million in total.

Taurean Prince. He was surprised by the Timberwolves’ decision not to extend his contract, but he has found shelter early. This Texan born in 1994 has gradually lost weight in the League since he was in Budenholzer’s magical Hawks, but he still has value. Low forward, also capable of being a false shooting guard, with a defensive cut and with a good outside shot even though he is going through spells. It is a year to 4.5 million salary.
