Following the news that the Los Angeles Lakers and Oklahoma City Thunder have an agreement in principle on a deal to send point guard Dennis Schroder to Los Angeles, and veteran swingman Danny Green along with No. 28 pick in Wednesday’s Draft to Oklahoma, the Lakers ex-president of basketball operations Earvin “Magic” Johnson, who is one of the architects of the current Lakers, took to Twitter to react to the trade:

The deal can’t be finalized until Monday. Last season, Schroder averaged 18.9 points, 3.6 rebounds, and 4.0 assists per game, while shooting at 46.9 percent from the floor and 38.5 percent from three.
