Los Angeles Lakers

In the Lakers’ offseason, on August 3, 2021, the team signed 37-year-old forward Carmelo Anthony to a one-year deal. Three days later, the Lakers traded Kyle Kuzma, Kentavious Caldwell-Pope and Montrezl Harrell to the Washington Wizards for Russell Westbrook and three future second-round draft picks. On the same day, the organization signed Dwight Howard, Kendrick Nunn, Malik Monk, Trevor Ariza and Wayne Ellington. Plus, the team re-signed Talen Horton-Tucker.

On August 31st, after being waived by the Memphis Grizzlies, the Lakers signed Rajon Rondo. Not to mention, center DeAndre Jordan is expected to be waived by the Pistons soon; his contract was bought out by the team. So, the Lakers are interested in signing him. Moreover, the team is about to have eight career All-Stars on their roster. Both Howard and Rondo helped contribute during the Lakers’ 2019-20 championship season. This is all why they are the selected favorites to win the Western Conference.

Brooklyn Nets

As for the Nets, the organization’s Big Three remains intact; Kyrie Irving, James Harden and Kevin Durant are all capable of carrying this team back to the finals, helping them get there for the first time since the 2002-03 NBA season. In the 2003 Finals, the San Antonio Spurs defeated the Nets in Game 6. Anyways, on August 5th, Brooklyn signed Cam Thomas.

A day later, they signed Jevon Carter and James Johnson. Then, Blake Griffin was re-signed to the roster and Patty Mills was later signed. Last week, it was first reported that 36-year-old LaMarcus Aldridge was medically cleared to return playing.

The guard retired abruptly on April 15th after experiencing irregular heartbeats. However, Aldridge too has been re-signed by the organization. This past Friday, DeAndre Jordan was traded by the Nets to the Pistons for four second-round draft picks, Sekou Doumbouya and Jahlil Okafor. Therefore, this all makes sense why the Nets are projected to make it out of the Eastern Conference.
