Reed lays out all the Lakers options for sign one or two more superstars.

The bottom line is that the Lakers have the following options for adding max level stars:

1. Wait, sign one max star in free agency in 2019, and have $13M more to spend next summer.

2. Trade for one max star now and have $15M more to spend next summer.

3. Trade for one max star this summer and another max star during the season.

4. Trade for two max stars during the season.

5. The Lakers cannot trade for two max stars this summer.

6. The Lakers cannot add one max star now (this summer or during the year) and then have room to sign another next summer.
