The Los Angeles Lakers have had a very busy summer, but does that set them up for success in the new season?
Shams Charania recently highlighted all the moves the Lakers made during this offseason for Stadium.
Looking at it in writing reaffirms just how substantial these last few months have been.

The team added Jalen Hood-Schifino and Maxwell Lewis in the draft and acquired Jaxson Hayes, Taurean Prince, Cam Reddish, Gabe Vincent, and Christian Wood in free agency.
They also said goodbye to Dennis Schroder, Mo Bamba, Malik Beasley, Troy Brown Jr., Shaquille Harris, and Lonnie Walker IV.
Not to mention, the front office re-signed Austin Reaves, D’Angelo Russell, Rui Hachimura, and Anthony Davis too.
It’s been a whirlwind few months for the Lakers and fans are quite satisfied with all they’ve done.
The team has improved its backcourt with the re-signings of Reaves and Russell as well as the addition of Vincent.
But they have also enhanced the frontcourt too with Hayes and Wood.
The roster they had last year was good enough to go all the way to the Western Conference Finals.
And now that roster is undoubtedly stronger.
But will that be enough to get further than last season?
While the Lakers are in a good position with this group, they will be facing some tough competition from the likes of the new-and-improved Phoenix Suns, Golden State Warriors, and of course the reigning champions, the Denver Nuggets.
Will this group of players work well together?
Will injuries once again get in the way of victory?
Lakers fans are unquestionably excited but uncertainty remains.
