The rookie was also the only Lakers player not wearing a Lakers uniform. He was back on the court late Tuesday evening, as well, showing off his ability with a video on Instagram.

A post shared by Lakers Nation (@bleedpurpleandgold) on Sep 19, 2017 at 7:01am PDTThe Lakers, meanwhile, are also busy trying to persuade LeBron James to choose L.A. as his next destination, and to opt out of his contract with the Cavs next summer.
It seems, increasingly, that James will not be playing in Cleveland come next summer, and heading for Los Angeles instead. This theory was reported by The Ringer’s Kevin O’Connor in June, and echoed by Yahoo’s Adrian Wojnarowski earlier this summer, both saying James would end up in L.A. with either the Lakers or the Clippers. Peter Vecsey, the Bleacher Report columnist, went one step further this week to say the decision had already been made and he was going to the Lakers.
