The Los Angeles Lakers are hopeful they will be able to visit the White House at some point during the season, per Chris Haynes of Yahoo Sports.

With President-elect Joe Biden taking over, the Lakers believe they will be able to visit the White House.

“The Los Angeles Lakers are looking forward to reconvening a post-championship tradition of visiting the White House at some point during the 2020-21 season after President-elect Joe Biden is sworn into office as the 46th President of the United States, league sources told Yahoo Sports.

Waiting to see if Biden’s schedule will be freed up for the lone occasion the Lakers travel to take on the Washington Wizards, and gathering information on what the White House COVID-19 protocols will look like are all determining factors, sources said,” Haynes reports, via Lakers Nation.

The defending champions Lakers could visit the House in the second part of the season, when they will travel to Washington to face the Wizards.

The last NBA team that visited the White House was the Cleveland Cavaliers back in 2016.
