When LeBron James chose to take his talents to the Los Angeles Lakers in free agency, it brought the team’s three-year rebuilding plan to a “whole ‘nother level,” according to Magic Johnson.     

The Lakers president of basketball operations said Friday that the organization will have the summer of 2019 in mind as it continues to shape its roster around the four-time NBA MVP, per’s Ohm Youngmisuk:

“If we feel there’s somebody out there or a deal to be made to make our team better, then we’ll do it as long as it’s a great deal for us. If it’s not, we have our team and we’ll go to battle, go to war with this team. We feel really good about this team.

“Then we’ll have enough room for next summer to give another player a max deal. [General manager] Rob [Pelinka] and I, we already put the strategy together. LeBron of course changed some of that, but we’re still going to stay disciplined and hope we’ll be a team that can have a championship run for a long time.”
