- Los Angeles Lakers: 1948 to October 5, 1954
Draft Picks, Trades, and Free Agent Signings
In some cases the starting date and/or ending date for
an executive could not be found, so conservative estimates are used in
their place. Therefore, transactions from the beginning and/or end of an
executive's tenure with a particular franchise may be missing from the
Los Angeles Lakers Franchise (January 1, 1948 - October 5, 1954)
