The Lakers are a dysfunctional mess right now, and one of the team’s free-agency targets illustrates that.
Los Angeles once parted ways with D’Angelo Russell, citing a culture change, being that D’Lo ratted out teammate Nick Young for cheating on then-girlfriend Iggy Azalea. Fast-forward to now, and Russell is one of the most coveted point guards on the free-agent market, after a solid tenure in Brooklyn.
Still, the Lakers are in need of a point guard, and we’re now witnessing what could be the “circle of life,” so to speak, as they’re mulling bringing Russell back.
The team’s front office is all over the place when it comes to personnel moves, and it will be interesting to see how the locker room reacts if Russell does come back.
