LeBron James led the Lakers to a convincing victory over the Utah Jazz on Friday night, scoring 32 points, 7 rebounds, and 10 assists on 54% shooting.

And while that performance was a good sign for the Lakers, they are not quite done making moves.

Former Finals MVP Andre Iguodala is seeking an exile from the Grizzlies, and the Lakeshow have every intention of signing him before the season's out. Iguodala offers them defensive intensity, locker room stability, and veteran Championship experience.

If they lose him, though, it would be a significant blow to their season. Andre Iguodala described it as a "real problem" for the Lakers.

If Iguodala signs with the Clippers, not only do they lose out on a big-impact player, but they'd lose him to their biggest rivals and competitors in the West.

With a 2-0 start (wins coming against the Lakers and Warriors), they are putting on a convincing display of dominance behind Kawhi Leonard, Lou Williams, and company. ith Paul George's return later in the season, they will only improve as a team in the coming weeks.

So, for the Lakers, the difference between winning a Championship and losing to the Clippers could just be Andre Iguodala. He could be the key to that elusive title.
