DeAndre Jordan might get signed by the Los Angeles Lakers after being bought out by the Pistons after being traded to the team. The veteran center is returning to play for Los Angeles but this time, it is for the Purple And Gold.
The Lakers are rebuilding their roster into a team where they won a championship with, and that is by having rim protectors within the paint. With the possible addition of Jordan, the Lakers’ defense down low will be compact.
Jordan has been a big contributor for the Nets in the past two seasons, he averaged 7.9 points, 8.7 rebounds, and 1.0 blocks per game. However, the big man’s minutes in terms of rotations and in the lineup have decreased over time.
If they sign Jordan, this is a sign that the Lakers are going back to the roster they had when they won the championship back in 2020. If Jordan ends up with the Lakers, he has a big opportunity to win his first championship.
The Lakers will have 14 players on their roster once Jordan is officially signed. The Lakers plans to enter the season with one open roster spot. They are going to limit them to only 14 players, making Jordan their final addition before the season starts.
