Magic Johnson Said That Lakers Have The Only One Untouchable Player On The Roster


The new Los Angeles Lakers President of Basketball Operations Magic Johnson is super busy with the Lakers roster and many fans expect a big name in the upcoming summer.

During the interview with the ESPN, he said that Lakers have the only one untouchable player on the roster.

"I would say probably the only player that we would say, hey, we would probably not move is Brandon Ingram," Johnson, the Lakers president of basketball operations said Thursday in a radio interview with ESPN Los Angeles.

"I think that we're excited about Brandon, his length, his size, his agility, his athleticism. And then when you think about, you know, he was a baby coming in, in his first year last season and we see that he really has a high ceiling and we're excited about what he can possibly turn into."

Brandon Ingram had a solid season with 9.4 points, 4.0 rebounds and 2.1 assists per game, but he wasn't so good from the downtown because he had only 29.4 percent. Ingram was one of the top 10 worst 3-point shooters in the NBA 2016/17.

Los Angeles Lakers have the 2nd pick in the 2017 NBA Draft and Lonzo Ball has the highest chances to become the Laker.

"We feel next year's class is going to be a special class of free agents... One superstar could change our roster, change our team"

If Magic Johnson selects Lonzo Ball, what is the next for D'Angelo Russell?
