Rob Pelinka opened up about what the top priority is for the Lakers this offseason.
Pelinka, the GM and vice president of basketball operations of the Lakers, named the health of LeBron James and Anthony Davis as the team’s top priority.
“But I will say, one of our top priorities this summer has to be, I view the role of any organization, front office, coaching staff, is to be a role of support and we have to pour all we can resource-wise into helping LeBron finalize getting through the end of his high ankle sprain and then Anthony Davis, of course, the injuries he faced,” Pelinka said about the Lakers superstars, via Lakers Nation.
LeBron James and Anthony Davis missed significant time as they were dealing with injuries in the last part of the season. As a result, they couldn’t be at their best in the playoffs and that cost the Lakers their qualification for the next round of the postseason.
