Lakers fans’ dreams of Paul George joining D’Angelo Russell and Julius Randle (did you hear they have the same agent?) were dashed today as D-Lo was shipped to the Nets for Brook Lopez and the No. 27 pick in this year’s draft:
According to Woj, the Lakers are gunning to bring in George and LeBron next offseason now that they no longer own Timofey Mozgov’s horrendous contract. Lofty #goals for sure, but it’s still shocking to see Magic pull the plug on 21-year-old D-Lo after years of backing him on Twitter.
