Lakers let D’Angelo Russell leave to bring in the 28-year-old star

With the offseason approaching, the Los Angeles Lakers are rumored to be scouting a skilled point guard entering free agency.

The Los Angeles Lakers are poised for a pivotal offseason that could set the course for the franchise’s future. With a new head coach on the horizon and roster spots to secure, the decisions made in the next few months are critical.

The point guard position is a particular area of focus, as D’Angelo Russell’s tenure with the team may be drawing to a close. His departure would leave a significant void, but the free agency market offers viable alternatives, including Tyus Jones, a player who has reportedly caught the Lakers’ interest per reports from NBA analyst Jake Weinbach.

Jones, at 28, is entering free agency with a reputation for his playmaking abilities and low turnover rate, making him an attractive option for teams seeking stability at the guard spot. His connection with Lakers general manager Rob Pelinka, who previously represented him, could further influence a potential move to Los Angeles.

Jones’s skill set as a facilitator who can also shoot from distance aligns with the Lakers’ needs. His impressive assist-to-turnover ratio of 5.56 highlights his ability to manage the game effectively, an area where the Lakers, who ranked 19th in turnovers last season, could use improvement.

Coming off a solid season with the Washington Wizards, where he posted averages of 12.0 points, 2.7 rebounds, and 7.3 assists, while shooting nearly 49% from the field and over 41% from three-point range, Jones has demonstrated he can contribute significantly to a team’s success.
