Magic: I'll step down if I don't land free agents for Lakers

"It's nice to be respected in the industry, [but] I think we have to earn that respect, so it's really about at the end of the day how many games we win and lose", Buss said about being a destination for players.

Johnson, who was hired by the Lakers in 2017, may very well be able to land that top-level free agent this National Basketball Association offseason. The Lakers could have to surrender a combination of former first-round picks - from Ingram, Kyle Kuzma and Josh Hart - and future first-round picks and perhaps restricted free agent Julius Randle in a sign-and-trade agreement.

"If I can't deliver, I'm going to step down myself". "And we can't control that so if guys decide not to come here, it's not a failure, we turn to next summer". Because you have to give us time, this class - like I told you before I took the job and when I took the job - it's going to be a two-summer thing for the Lakers, this summer and next summer.

Johnson and Pelinka also brought in Kentavious Caldwell-Pope as a free agent last summer and traded for Brook Lopez and Isaiah Thomas in the hopes of adding veteran talent. "(Jeanie Buss) won't have to fire me, I'll step away from it, because I can't do this job". "I put on my leather trousers and it's like a whole new outfit, and I was going to just tweet, 'Don't ever underestimate the power of leather trousers for traveling because they don't wrinkle.' And I started writing it, and then I realized that just the first sentence was a great tweet even just the way it was".

"Of course, I'm curious", Silver said when asked about James' decision. "I am going to do my job. And the investment that the ownership has made to a training facility like the one we have continues to show that we're backing up our words". So you think I'm anxious about this? I have played against Larry Bird in the Finals. "I played in nine Finals".

The Lakers have been repeatedly linked to audacious moves for LeBron James and Paul George this year as they attempt to re-establish the team as contenders in the Western Conference.

Johnson said he is prepared to fly anywhere at a moment's notice once free agency begins to meet with free agents.

"I'm going to stay disciplined and patient", Johnson said.
