Hockey Assist: @zoemadlivinparisthisaugust 🏀 Carter and Wright’s prognostication is based on Raptors president Masai Ujiri coming to Los Angeles to fill the shoes of the recently-departed Magic Johnson. The former Lakers point guard stepped down right before the end of the regular season.
“Watch for the general manager of Toronto,” Carter said, mistakingly identifying Ujiri as the GM and not the president. “If (Ujiri) decides to come (to LA), it’s going to be a package deal (with Leonard). Just watch for that, because I know Kawhi is very comfortable and happy with everything that’s going on in Toronto. If (Ujiri) leaves, why wouldn’t he be packaging the prime free agent prospect with him?”
Nick Wright responded by saying this is a theory he’s had for several weeks now.
“The day Magic quit, the day after on this show, I started saying Masai Ujiri’s name,” Wright said. “It’s not because I had some reports or some insight. It’s because it just made too much sense for a guy who does like the spotlight…going to LA, all the things they’ve done for Kawhi, Masai’s the one who put them in place.” “If I had to break it down on where I think Kawhi will go percentage-wise,” he said on Undisputed on Friday, “10 percent he goes to the Lakers…what the Clippers have right now is (that) they’re so much better run as an organization than the Lakers. Everybody sees it.
“They’ve recruited Kawhi all year. They have people going to the games. ‘Hey, we’re just letting you know we’re here Kawhi!’ I don’t think it’s anything against LeBron, they’re friendly…but the Lakers are in such disarray.” ______________________________________ #Lakers#LakeShow#LosAngeles#LosAngelesLakers#LakersNation#LakerNation#LAL#LakersChapo#LakersChapo2#ChapoLakers#ChapoCommunity#California#SoCal#LakersContent#LakersTimeline#NBA#NBA2019#Lakers2019
