Magic Still Communicates With Lakers, Despite Resigning from Role

Although he is no longer the team’s president of basketball operations, Magic Johnson is still around.

Those Laker lifers, eh?

“No. The same,” Johnson said in an interview with TMZ Sports. “Everybody knows I love the Lakers, and so I’m gonna always help them. Like right now, I’m gonna still help them. I love my team, I love my franchise, and I love this city.

“You have to do things sometimes on your own terms. It doesn’t matter what other people think, see? And I’m that guy. But I’m still helping them. It’s almost like I never left (laughs). I’m still talking to them every day,” Johnson continued. “I’m gonna help them get the Lakers back right, you can believe that.”

Johnson also added that he still communicates with the Lakers organization on a daily basis since resigning from his post. He hopes to still act as an advisor for the team, providing input on free agency and potential trade targets.

“I love Jeanie,” Johnson said. “I’m trying to help. Listen, I may not be in there physically, but I’m still there.”

As of now, team owner Jeanie Buss and the franchise have no plans of finding a replacement for Johnson. General manager Rob Pelinka has been spearheading the coaching search and has been granted more power within the organization.
