  • Rob Pelinka - GM - Los Angeles Lakers

    According to ESPN’s Ramona Shelburne, the Lakers will not hire a President of Basketball Operations to replace Magic Johnson and GM Rob Pelinka will continue in his role.

    Pelinka previously reported to Johnson but will now report directly to ownership. It’s been a tumultuous off-season for the Lakers considering the departure of Johnson and the issues surrounding their search for a new head coach. Luckily, the team has the fourth pick in this year’s draft and Pelinka will try to get an impactful veteran to play alongside LeBron James.
