Jim Buss Rumors

President of basketball operations Jim Buss has said he’ll step down after next season if he can’t get the franchise headed in “the right direction.” He has never wavered from that timeline, nor has his sister Jeanie Buss, the Lakers president, ever let up in holding him to it. General manager Mitch Kupchak’s contract runs several years beyond next season, but it’s hard to imagine him continuing in his role if Jim Buss were to step down.
