Since getting hired to by the Lakers as the basketball and business adviser to owner Jeanie Buss, it seemed like Magic Johnson was coming for the jobs of general manager Mitch Kupchak and vice president of basketball operations Jim Buss. And after a few weeks of Johnson dropping hints, on Tuesday, the Lakers announced that Kupchak has been fired and Johnson has been promoted to president of basketball operations. Buss is also no longer in his role with the Lakers.

From the Lakers:

Los Angeles Lakers Governor Jeanie Buss announced today that the team has named Earvin “Magic” Johnson as President of Basketball Operations. In addition, General Manager Mitch Kupchak has been relieved of his duties, effective immediately. Furthermore, Jim Buss will no longer hold his role as Lakers Executive Vice President of Basketball Operations.
