With only four more games until the end of the 2016-2017 season, Lakers’ assistant general manager Glenn Carraro has resigned after seventeen years with the team.
Carraro, who joined the Lakers in 2000, was promoted to assistant GM in late May 2012, walked away from the club on Thursday. This came shortly after the Lakers had hired a new general manager, Rob Pelinka. Carraro was part of the soul of the team and played a big part as one of the Lakers main salary cap consultants. Pelinka now has the job of trying to turn the Lakers into a long term contender after a four year spell in the draft lottery, a process that has landed the Lakers with a lot of young players with high potential.
This move means that going into the 2017-2018 season, the Lakers will have a whole new front office, replacing Jim Buss, Mitch Kupchak, and Glenn Carraro with Magic Johnson and Rob Pelinka.
So which do you think will be better? This season’s front office or next?
