Now it’s all starting to make sense. That’s if you put any stock into this report.
According to a report by, one of the main reasons why the Lakers brought in Kidd is so that he can help in recruiting Milwaukee Bucks star Giannis Antetokounmpo once he becomes a free agent in 2021.
“It is just speculation right now, but one person asked me if I knew why Kidd was there and as I guessed at his relationship with LeBron James or his ability to tutor Lonzo Ball, the person familiar with the Lakers process said something else: that Kidd was brought to Los Angeles to attract Giannis Antetokounmpo to the Lakers when he becomes a free agent in two years when the Bucks star could become an unrestricted free agent.”
LeBron has a small window left to finish his career on a high note.
If that means waiting two more years to land a prize like The Greek Freak so be it.
Plus the Lakers are going to have to plan on life without LeBron in the near future.
Every great King must give up his throne, maybe Giannis is the rightful heir apparent?
