Magic Johnson Becomes President of Los Angeles Lakers

The Los Angeles Lakers made a major shakeup to their front office on Tuesday. His experience as an agent could help him, as he will have a firm understanding of player interests as well as the legalese behind the NBA's CBA.

Williams leads the league in points off the bench, averaging 18.6 per game, whereas Corey Brewer has struggled throughout the year. Lakers have relieved GM Mitch Kupchak and Jim Buss as role of VP of their duties. It makes sense considering that's where the Lakers reside and Showtime alum Magic Johnson is now leading the charge. Pelinka's group now represents James Harden, Eric Gordon, and Andre Iguodala, although he will have to divest himself to take the Lakers job.

Bob Garcia IV is a sports journalist from Southern California.

The Vertical reported Pelinka will turn his firm over to employees as he takes on the position with the Lakers until he comes up with a long-term sales proposition for the company. This is his first experience in a front office position with an National Basketball Association team.

"Those days are over - no one looks at the Lakers like that right now", one exec told Amico Hoops.

And now, 100 straight wins. "No one really knew who was going to be "The Guy" or guys that would take over", Williams said. For more on these wonderful women and their legendary coach, Geno Auriemma, I'm joined by USA Today's Christine Brennan .

Now that Johnson and Pelinka are in place, will the third member of the trifecta be the recently retired Bryant? The dynasty went on during Kobe Bryant's reign on the court. Johnson wants to work alongside a person who will be knowledgeable with the new CBA guidelines, and someone who knows LA Lakers in every inch of the franchise' history.

"I'm not going to have every answer".

We can't wait to see what kind of ideas he has for the Lakers. "There is no certain role".

A giant bonus to Myers and Pelinka's path to National Basketball Association front offices is that their work as agents has already build relationships inside National Basketball Association front offices and with players and coaches. "Jerry Buss demanded and our fans rightly expect", Jeanie Buss said in the statement. Magic Johnson is known to have some weird opinions, so it's not guaranteed that this was a great signing, but as I said, at least they got rid of the original problem and are making an effort to rectify it.
