Lakers receive mixed reviews for their offseason moves

Lakers fans hoped to make Russell Westbrook into Kyrie Irving when free agency started at the end of June.

Los Angeles' free agent additions have been enticing yet limited.

If the Lakers sign Kyrie Irving, everything changes, but nobody can anticipate how it will play out

not even Irving. With their free agent additions, the Lakers clearly intended to get younger this offseason.

LeBron James, Anthony Davis, and Russell Westbrook didn't have much shooting last season, and now they don't have Monk

On paper, the defence is superior, but none of the additions are stoppers.

Christie is a good player but too far away to aid a championship team. Irving would help, but L.A.'s situation isn't terrific. Grade: C"
