The NBA offseason is in its final weeks as the 2021-22 preseason games are almost here.

The Los Angeles Lakers will essentially debut an entirely new roster on the court, as LeBron James, Anthony Davis and Talen Horton-Tucker are the only returners from last year.

Russell Westbrook will be the most prominent debutant when the Lakers take on the Brooklyn Nets to open the preseason. Los Angeles acquired Westbrook to be the third star and help James and Davis lead L.A. to a title.

Since the preseason games don’t count, it’ll be an opportunity for the team to start developing chemistry on the court and be as prepared as possible for opening night.

Here are the six games L.A. will play:
