It looks like LeBron James’ recruiting efforts have paid off. It was reported on Friday that Kawhi Leonard will now meet with the Lakers next week when free agency gets underway.
It was also reported, that in addition to Jeanie Buss, former President of Basketball Operations, Magic Johnson is expected to attend the meeting.

Magic might have stepped down from his role with the team, but if the reports are true, he still has some influence within the organization.
Magic is the last person I want at that meeting if I’m with the Lakers. He stepped down from his position with the team and had some critical words for GM Rob Pelinka upon his exit.
Kawhi might have a few questions for Magic that the Lakers wouldn’t want him answering honestly.
