Magic Johnson plans on helping the Los Angeles Lakers during free agency but won’t be allowed to join official meetings with available players due to NBA rules, according to ESPN’s Ramona Shelburne.
“A friend of mine called and says Kawhi (Leonard) wants to meet with you,” Johnson said, according to Shelburne. “I said no problem. I’m available if that’s what this man wants.”
“But I got a great life. I’m not trying to mess with anybody’s job.”
It was previously reported that Johnson was planning on joining Lakers owner Jeanie Buss in a meeting with Leonard’s camp. However, Johnson claimed that neither the Lakers nor Buss have asked him to participate
