Magic Johnson is hoping to see the Los Angeles Lakers improving this offseason to return to the NBA Finals. The Lakers’ legend believes the franchise should make a move for Chris Paul if he opts out from the last year of his contract.

Paul could become an unrestricted free agent if he declines his $44M option. The veteran superstar is coming off an incredible season, helping the Suns reach the NBA Finals for the first time in 28 years.

After the Milwaukee Bucks defeated the Phoenix Suns in six games in the NBA Finals, Magic started working to try to recruit Chris Paul to the Lakers, giving a big idea to LeBron James.

Johnson would love to see a big three consisted of LeBron, Anthony Davis, and Chris Paul. The Lakers are hoping to improve their chances of winning a title next season, and CP3 is maybe a way to do that.
