The Los Angeles Lakers hope to become the first NBA champions to visit the White House since 2016 when president elect Joe Biden takes office.

No team has visited the White House under the presidency of Donald Trump.

President Trump rescinded invitations to NBA championship winning teams in recent years after several players stated they did not wish to visit.

But US media claim the Lakers would be keen to visit Biden after he is sworn into office on January 20.
