Magic Johnson says he won't have to monitor LaVar Ball despite the fact that LaVar was outspoken and critical earlier in the season about Luke Walton. "No. I think that we talked to him, Rob [Pelinka] and I have a good relationship with LaVar," Johnson said. "He wanted to have updates on his son and we wanted to tell him how we felt Lonzo was performing. And so we were able to really have positive communication… you have to understand that our main concern is Lonzo. That is who we are going to spend the most time talking to. But we only had two conversations with LaVar, and they were both good, and we moved on. I don't have to monitor LaVar. He loves his son and cares about his son and wants his son to be better and that is what we want. We want him to be better and so I am not going to monitor him."

When a reporter started to ask Magic Johnson if the Lakers might consider trading one of their young prospects like a Lonzo Ball or Brandon Ingram if an opportunity arises to make a big move this offseason, Johnson quickly cut off the question. "We are not going to talk about that," Johnson said. "We are not going to talk about that."

Fully aware of past failures in previous free agency forays, Magic Johnson and Rob Pelinka say they're serious about maintaining cap flexibility even if it means coming up empty-handed and not making a splash this July. Pelinka said July 2018 will not be a "litmus test of success" and that it is not this summer or bust. "We are not going to give money away just to say we signed somebody," Johnson said. "We are not going to do that."
