Read on to get all the detail on the Los Angeles Lakers double down on multiple free agents

Lakers Double Down on Free Agent + 2 Lakers the Los Angeles Lakers double downed immediately after taking an L on Kawhi, so they turned their attention to filling out a roster.

Who are the free agents that the Los Angeles Lakers double down on?

The first move came shortly after the Lakers were informed that Kawhi signed with the Clippers. Not to mention, the Lakers double down with Kawhi’s Raptors teammate Danny Green with a two-year, $30 million deal. Green, a 3-and-D specialist, was a key contributor for the Toronto Raptors during the 2019-20 season. The 32-year-old started 80 games and hit 45.5 percent of his 3-point attempts.

The next player that the Lakers re-signed Kentavious Caldwell-Pope on a two-year, $16 million deal. The 26-year-old can hold his own on the defensive end, he hit 34.7 percent of his 3-point attempts last season. He played in 82 games for the Lakers, but he needs to prove himself.

Lastly, it looks like the Lakers double down bringing back JaVale McGee, as he has agreed to a two-year, $8.2 million deal. McGee will likely start at center, which will allow Anthony Davis to move to his preferred power forward spot.

McGee started 62 games for the Lakers last season and averaged a career-high 12.0 points per game. He also ranked 38th in the NBA with a 21.88 PER.

It’s obvious that the Lakers Double Down is an attempt to surround LeBron James and Davis with shooters and defenders, especially with the acquisitions of Jared Dudley and Troy Daniels.

The Lakers are still desperately in need of a point guard.
