I think the next few days will be extremly important in terms of figuring out what the direction will be.
If Lakers trade Lou and Swaggy for picks, then we'll know Magic might be somewhat smart and on the same page as many analysts, writers, fans etc. who thinks that we need to keep our top 3 pick (and the 2019 pick), build through the draft etc.
If Lakers do nothing - or worse, give up the farm for Jimmy Butler - we'll know that we have turned into the Knicks of the west coast.
Does anyone have any idea about the direction of the team from here on out?
