Willy Hernangómez on the Lakers’ radar for the summer

The NBA season has not gone as Willy Hernangómez expected after being proclaimed champion and MVP of the Eurobasket, but he does not throw in the towel to succeed in the best league in the world

After a really difficult season, Willy Hernangomez seemed to be on the way out nba. Europe was waiting for him, as the most important teams from the old continent were waiting for him with open arms and big contracts. However, Real Madrid seemed to be the option that was gaining the most strength, since, among other things, the departure of Poirier is expected.

However, and despite the fact that both the Spanish center and the white team would be delighted to unite their paths again, it does not seem to be going to happen this season. And it is that Willy Hernangómez still has one more year on his contract with the New Orleans Pelicans. That is why for the moment he is not considering returning to Europe.

Willy Hernangómez will speed up his NBA options

In recent statements, Willy Hernangómez has made it clear that his goal is to succeed in the NBA. He has already told the New Orleans Pelicans that he wants to become one of the best centers in the league and win a ring. Something that he will not be able to do in his current team, since it is one of the last options of his coach at the moment.

That is why the most sensible option for this coming summer is to leave the Pelicans. Willy Hernangómez is willing to experience a new adventure and, surely, offers will not be lacking. And it is that in the few minutes that he has had this season he has shown that he is one of the best offensive centers in the league.

Lakers looking for new center

One of the teams that will look for a new center this summer will be the Los Angeles Lakers. The purple and gold franchise wants to maintain the core of players that has led them to the Western Conference Finals this season and they are looking for an inside companion for Anthony Davis, who doesn’t like to play as ‘5’.

Willy Hernangómez is presented as one of the best possible options for the Lakers. Not only because on an offensive level he could complement himself perfectly with Anthony Davis, but also with players like D’Angelo Russell or Austin Reaves. Also, thanks to his great offensive qualities, he could be a great boost for the second unit. Something very important, especially during the regular season.
