Think about it: Pau Gasol is out, and Carlos Boozer, Julius Randle and Ed Davis are in. Jeremy Lin is also in with players such as Steve Blake (mid 2014) and Jodie Meeks having moved on.
Even Kobe Bryant, despite being one of the most recognized figures in franchise history, can be counted as a major addition, as he played just six games throughout the entire 2013-14 campaign.
Will L.A. be a contender this upcoming season? Not likely. But the organization can find solace in the fact that it hasn't sat still while it waits for substantial change in 2015 and 2016.
