The 2015-16 Los Angeles Lakers season was the franchise's 68th season, its 67th season in the National Basketball Association (NBA), and its 56th in Los Angeles. The Lakers looked to rebound following its worst season in franchise history in 2014-15, but would finish with a new franchise-worst 17-65 record, which included a season-high, 10-game losing streak in January. Jordan Hill, Jeremy Lin, Wesley Johnson, Wayne Ellington, Carlos Boozer, Ronnie Price and Ed Davis all departed respectively. The Lakers drafted D'Angelo Russell, Larry Nance, Jr., and Anthony Brown in the 2015 NBA Draft. Afterwards, the Lakers traded for former Pacers' center Roy Hibbert and signed for the reigning Sixth Man of the Year, Lou Williams, and forward Brandon Bass. Former Lakers forward, Metta World Peace, was brought back to the team as well after the Lakers amnestied him in 2013.

This was Kobe Bryant's final season with the team and in the NBA after he announced his retirement. Playing 20 years in the league, Bryant won 5 championships with the Lakers and is believed as one of the greatest basketball players of all time. Bryant was one of the 2 last remaining active players from the 1996 NBA Draft, along with Ray Allen, whom at the time was a free agent after not playing a game since the end of the 2013-14 season. Allen officially announced his retirement in November 2016.[1]

Following the season, Byron Scott was fired as head coach and replaced by Luke Walton.
