According to The Athletic, Anthony Davis and LeBron James will occupy Lakers’ froncourt lineup. Newcomers Russell Westbrook and Wayne Ellington will fill up the backcourt spot, while returning Trevor Ariza will serve as a wingman.
Meanwhile, third-year guard Talen Horton-Tucker is expected to compete in camp for a possible starting role.
