As always, there are a lot of storylines to follow with the Los Angeles Lakers in the upcoming season.
Of course, the biggest question regarding the team will be if they can reverse the damage done last year and finally have a winning season again.
There are also questions about their new head coach, Darvin Ham.
Lakers head coach Darvin Ham will make his return to Milwaukee when the Bucks host the Lakers on Dec. 2, sources tell @TheAthletic.
The Lakers will also play in Cleveland on Dec. 6 on TNT, sources say.

Ham, who was previously an assistant coach for the Milwaukee Bucks, will be seeing his old team on December 2.
That is when the Lakers will travel to Milwaukee to play against Giannis Antetokounmpo and the Bucks.
Meanwhile, the team will then play against the Cleveland Cavaliers on December 6, just days later.
That will be a very special game because great things happen whenever LeBron James returns home.
By the time the Lakers square off against the Bucks and Cavaliers, we will know so much more about how well they are doing.
When December rolls around, enough time will have passed to get a good idea of how good or bad the Lakers are now.
Will they have addressed what ails them or will they still be on the rocky road that started last season?
Ham has a lot to prove to those loyal to the Lakers.
He did great things as an assistant coach for Milwaukee and was a major part of the rise of Antetokounmpo.
That’s one of the main reasons why LA was so interested in hiring him as their new head coach – they imagined a scenario where he could work well with big man Anthony Davis and improve the team’s defense and work well with the seasoned vets too.
Time will tell if the Lakers made the right choice with Ham.
