The Lakers don't want to get into any trouble during this year's free agency period. 

Los Angeles co-owner and governor Jeanie Buss called a meeting, which was led by president of basketball operations Magic Johnson, to warn employees not to tamper ahead of the free agent signing period, according to ESPN. 

The Lakers are expected to be a big player in the free agency market and it's been speculated the franchise will target LeBron James and Paul George.

They could also consider trading for Kawhi Leonard, especially after reports have surfaced that the Spurs star wants out of San Antonio. ESPN reported earlier this week that Leonard would prefer to be traded to the Lakers. 

Per NBA rules, teams are prohibited from negotiating with free agents until midnight on July 1.

Los Angeles has received punishment twice in the past for tampering, but this year the Lakers want to make sure the rules are "crystal clear to everyone" to avoid punishment from the league.
