Magic Johnson: I’ll ‘Step Down’ if I ‘Can’t Deliver’ by Next Summer



Saying it won’t be a failure if the Los Angeles Lakers do not land a max free agent this July, team president Magic Johnson set a timeline for his rebuild by saying he will “step away” if he “can’t deliver” by next summer.

“No, because I told you this is [about] two summers,” Johnson said when asked if it will be a failure if the Lakers don’t land a max star like LeBron James or Paul George in free agency next month. “We don’t know what people are going to decide, and we can’t control that. So if guys decide not to come here, it’s not a failure — we turn to next summer.
