Magic Johnson’s cash claim on the Lakers’ latest rookie!

Former of the house of the Lakers, Magic Johnson observes carefully the strategy of the Purples and Golds in the free agency. The latest rookie in particular made him react, and the Hall of Famer dropped a big statement on Twitter.

Whatever happens to the Kyrie Irving file, the Lakers must imperatively strengthen their workforce. The latter had been built to form a superteam last summer, but it simply never worked this season. It is therefore necessary to completely rebuild around the hard core led by LeBron Jamesand finding the right role players has been one of the top priorities for managers since the opening of the free agency.

After having had to follow the galleys of his ex-franchise in 2021-22, Magic Johnson clearly hopes for a turnaround next year and is therefore following very closely what is happening on the side of the Californians and their front office. An arrival in particular attracted the attention of the former leader, namely that of Thomas Bryant who is the latest recruit. His eldest was thus absolutely overjoyed on social networks:

Magic delighted with the arrival of Thomas Bryant to the Lakers

With these free agent signings, the Lakers have become younger and more athletic! I am delighted with the signing of Thomas Bryant. With his ability to shoot from three points, he will create more space for LeBron and AD.

Obviously, and unlike the fans who are furious, the Hall of Famer sees with a very good eye the movement of the Purple and Gold house. In the case of Bryant, it is moreover a return to the fold since the latter had made his debut in the City Angels. His injury history at the Wizards, however, caused his rating to drop drastically in the market, which is why Rob Pelinka & co. were able to sign it so easily.

However, if he can finally overcome his physical fragility, Magic is convinced that the big man would be an excellent addition to the angelino racket. However, he is not the only one to have received praise from the five-time champion, among the new faces of the Arena. Arriving from Spurs, Lonnie Walker was also enthusiastically greeted by No. 32. The latter is particularly excited by the physical profile of the playmaker:

I like Lonnie Walker because he’s tall, strong and athletic. The Lakers also made some nice additions to their roster with Troy Brown Jr., Juan Toscano-Anderson and Damian Jones!

Clearly, Magic Johnson is pretty smitten with recruiting the Lakers so far. Thomas Bryant and Lonnie Walker are of particular interest to him, and we can be sure that he will follow them very closely next season.
