Lakers agree to free agent deals with Kentavious Caldwell-Pope, Lance Stephenson, JaVale McGee

After agreeing to a deal with LeBron James, the Lakers are bringing back Kentavious Caldwell-Pope while adding Lance Stephenson and JaVale McGee

With LeBron James on board, the rest of the dominoes are beginning to fall.

Another Klutch Sports client, Kentavious Caldwell-Pope, agreed to return to the Lakers on a $12 million, one-year deal, according to Chris Haynes from ESPN.

Meanwhile, the Lakers also added Lance Stephenson on a one-year deal worth $4.5 million, according to ESPN, and will sign JaVale McGee to the minimum for one season, per Haynes.

So, who will be next? The Lakers still have a decision to make on Julius Randle, who is a restricted free agent, and the purple and gold could still attempt to snag Kawhi Leonard away from the San Antonio Spurs via trade.

There will also like be more options for the Lakers to sign players to minimum deals now they have LeBron on their side. Stay tuned.
