Sign those "star free agents" with what ?
Mitch never had capspace like this.
Oh and BTW he was still able to build 2 championship teams without it.

It is so unfortunate that one of the most storied franchises in the NBA, cannot draw players that could turn around their current misfortune. Gone are the fun days of Wilt, West, Magic and Kareem, Shaq, all players that made people want to come and play with them, as just a phone call from any of these players convinced top tier players to take on lesser roles for the better of the team. Bob McAdoo, Karl Malone, GP, all came willingly, and now, nobody wants to even consider the Los Angeles Lakers.
Jayden Brown or Ben Simmons?
It seems that free agents didn't have a problem coming while Shaq was there. He is a legend, and people had no issues playing with the Lakers while both he and Kobe were in the locker room while with the Lakers.
