Now that the Los Angeles Lakers have a max slot, here are three superstars they should pursue.

With a bit of a lull in Los Angeles Lakers news the past number of days, that all changed with 5 tweets from ESPN Insider Adrian Wojnarowski. The Lakers free agency has exploded into life.

What this news seemingly indicates is that the Los Angeles Lakers have potentially been able to get a commitment from a 3rd star. While there is no proof of this from any of the major ESPN or NBA insiders, the writing does seem to be on the wall that a 3rd star could be on the way for the Purple and Gold, leading to another Big Three in the City Of Angels.

While the Lakers only currently have 3 members on the roster in LeBron James, Anthony Davis and Kyle Kuzma (With Talen Horton-Tucker to be signed when the free agents have been acquired), there are still 11 more roster spots to fill out.

While most of these will be filled out with veteran minimum contracts such as (potentially) J.R Smith, Kyle Korver, Rajon Rondo, JaVale McGee and and 1 room exception contract like Wayne Ellington, Seth Curry, Nerlens Noel or even Marcus Morris, they still need to spend the newly found cap space they have just acquired.

With numerous All-Star caliber free agents on the market this summer, the Lakers are primed to make a second huge splash this offseason and completely change the landscape of the National Basketball Association.

Here are 3 players the Lakers should go after hard in Free Agency on the 30th.
