“The Lakers have long been linked to Thompson because his father, Mychal, was a member of the Showtime Era and currently works as one of the team’s radio broadcasters. However, Thompson has been adamant in his desire to remain with the Golden State Warriors.
Leonard was mentioned as a potential option for the Lakers ever since his reported trade request this summer. Butler was recently said to be open to playing in L.A., amid reports of unrest in Minnesota.
Durant might be the longest shot for the Lakers, as he reportedly rejected an overture from LeBron James to join forces this summer. However, the Lakers nonetheless will have the requisite salary cap space to extend Durant (and any player with 10 years of service time) a max-contract offer.
That is due to the front office’s wizardry and awareness to wait until Sept. 1 to formally waive Deng. By doing so, his 2018-19 salary became fully committed. Therefore, the Lakers only stretched Deng’s 2019-20 salary for three years, at $5 million in dead cap each year."
