Insider Says The Magic Are Interested In Lakers Guard

The Los Angeles Lakers brought back D’Angelo Russell this season, and it seemed like more of an afterthought than anything else.

He was instantly linked with a trade away from Southern California.

Then, he turned the corner and had one of the best seasons of his career, and he hasn’t slowed down yet.

Notably, that means he could be looking at a big payday next summer.

He signed a two-year deal worth $36 million, but he could decline his player option for the upcoming campaign and become a free agent again at just 28 years of age.

With that in mind, Lakers insider Jovan Buha reveals that the Orlando Magic are a team to keep an eye on when it comes to D’Angelo Russell.

He said that they’re in a position to make a run at both him and Klay Thompson, who they’re also reportedly interested in.

Russell has had the best season of his career since he left the Brooklyn Nets, making shot after shot and excelling as a playmaker.

The Magic have a bit of a surplus and logjam in the backcourt, but they continue to explore all their options.

The Magic have an exciting project on their hands, and Russell’s shot-making ability could make him a natural fit there, as Paolo Banchero runs the point through stretches, and he’s a great slasher and pick-and-pop threat.
