Much has been made of the Los Angeles Lakers acquiring veteran talent over the offseason but how does it stack up compared to the rest of the league?
The Lakers are indeed the oldest team by average age, with the Miami Heat and Milwaukee Bucks rounding out the top three.
On the opposite end of the scale, the Oklahoma City Thunder are the youngest team, with the Memphis Grizzlies and Orlando Magic second and third youngest respectively. With an average age of just 24.0, the Grizzlies performance to reach the postseason in 2021 is all the more impressive.
With just over a month until tip-off in the 2021-22 season, let's take a look at the age profiles for each team in the NBA.
