Free agency is less than a week away, and the Lakers will look to make a splash, after acquiring Anthony Davis.

The Lakers can possibly sign a player such as Kawhi Leonard, Jimmy Butler, or Kyrie Irving. Kawhi Leonard should be the only player that the Lakers give a max contract to if they have enough money to offer a max contract. But, the Lakers have another option as well.
