Jim Buss Says Lakers Fans Shouldn’t Expect Big Offseason Changes

I am sure this isn’t what Lakers Fan wanted to hear, not because their core isn’t a solid one, it just isn’t a championship one.

What are the chances of the Lakers starting the season with Bryant, Andrew Bynum and Pau Gasol all in Lakers uniforms?

“Very good,” says Buss.

So you don’t agree with those who say the Lakers must turn Gasol into two or three players via a trade?

“No,” he says. “I think changes are going to be made moving Pau lower to the basket. We can improve that way with a change in coaching strategy rather than a change in personnel.”

No moves?

“We will try to sign Sessions when the rules allow beginning in July,” he says. “And improve the bench.”

No major free-agent signings, no blockbuster trades?

“No,” he says.

You can’t believe everything you hear during the summer, but for now it doesn’t appear that Lakers will be making any major splashes.
