Lakers Hope Young Players Draw Free Agents



Meanwhile, (D’Angelo) Russell, (Jordan) Clarkson and Julius Randle are expected to represent the Lakers’ long-term future.

But will those three players blossom enough to persuade a marquee free agent enough that a future partnership would lead to NBA championships?

“It’s hard to convince a veteran free agent to come to L.A. because they’re going to love our No. 2 pick (Russell). Or they’re going to love playing with our seventh pick from a year ago (Randle),” Kupchak said. “But we’re hoping that all three of these guys can develop and go into the offseason so that we can say to prospective veteran free agents, ‘Listen you’ve seen them play this year, come play with them.’”
