Magic Johnson — who surprisingly stepped down as Lakers president on April 9 without telling anyone in the organization — may be wishing he’s the top executive of the team now.

The Lakers legend, who cited his desire to return to the simpler life he enjoyed as a wealthy businessman and beloved former player, went to Twitter to say how much he liked Saturday’s Anthony Davis-to-the-Lakers deal.

He threw bouquets at everyone in the organization, even general manager Rob Pelinka, whom he reportedly had issues with while he was running the team.

“Great job by Owner Jeanie Buss bringing Anthony Davis to the Lakers!,” Johnson tweeted. “Laker Nation, the Lakers are back in a championship hunt! Congratulations to the entire organization. I know LeBron James has a big smile on his face. I’m loving this!!”

“Laker Nation, you wanted the great Jeanie Buss to step up and bring a championship team back to LA and she’s doing just that! And the Lakers still have over $30 million of cap space to spend on free agents starting June 30th.”

After an eight-minute Twitter gap from his other complimentary statements, Johnson grudgingly took the high road and gave Pelinka, who he hired in 2017, his props.

“Great trade Rob Pelinka! Job well done,” Johnson tweeted.

Apparently time may have softened Johnson’s view of Pelinka, whom he wouldn’t endorse the day after he announced he was leaving the organization.

“Do I think Rob is the right GM? That’s a decision Jeanie [Buss] has to make,” Johnson said a day after, via The Athletic’s Bill Oram.

Despite Johnson’s love of the deal, the Lakers did give up a lot of promising young players to the Pelicans. They agreed to send Lonzo Ball, Brandon Ingram, Josh Hart and three first-round picks – including the No. 4 pick in 2019 – in exchange for the All-Star big man.

The nine suspects indicted in the shooting of Red Sox great David Ortiz will remain behind bars for at least a year while the investigation continues, according to a report.

The suspects were led into a Dominican courtroom Friday wearing vests and helmets to protect them from an angry mob upset about the attack on the local sports hero, the Boston Globe reported.

A judge cited the case’s complexity for the unusual decision to order a lengthy jail term before trial.

Prosecutors announced Friday that they expect to provide a detailed account of the shooting and identify the masterminds as early as next week, the paper reported.

Officials want to keep the alleged hit men separated and will divide them among four different prisons, it said.

The Red Sox slugger was at an outdoor bar in his hometown of Santo Domingo Sunday when a man jumped off a motorcycle and shot him from behind. He is in stable condition at a Boston hospital, where he underwent a second surgery Monday.

CHICAGO — You don’t pitch, you don’t win.

That’s been a baseball commandment ever since Mike Francesa invented the game.

If you dissect the June swoon the Yankees were in when they faced the White Sox on Saturday night at Guaranteed Rate Field (how bad of a name is that for a ballpark?), there is certainly a case to be made that the starting rotation is the biggest reason for the reeling visitors having lost 8 of 11 and the AL East lead to the Rays.

After the White Sox were done pummeling cutter-less CC Sabathia in Friday night’s 10-2 beat down, the rotation numbers looked like something from a last-place club instead of one that started Saturday’s action a half-length out of first.

In the past six starts (not counting Chad Green’s two-inning stint as the opener last Sunday in Cleveland), Yankees starters had been atrocious heading into another bullpen day Saturday, when Green took the mound for his fifth “start.’’

They were 1-4 with a 7.84 ERA and had given up 42 hits (10 home runs) in 31 innings.

Since the biggest question entering the season was the rotation and the area GM Brian Cashman will undoubtedly address prior to the July 31 trade deadline, it isn’t a shock. Especially since former staff ace Luis Severino hasn’t thrown a pitch yet and nine-game winner Domingo German joined Severino on the injured list last week.

Yet, the problems run deeper than the rotation.

Aaron Hicks has 86 at-bats since coming off the injured list on May 15 and lugged a .209 (18-for-86) average into Saturday night’s game. He had four homers and 16 RBIs with a .649 OPS. The switch-hitting center fielder appeared on the uptick when he went 3-for-9 with two homers and four RBIs in two games (June 6-7), but in the five games since Hicks batted .105 (2-for-19).

Fellow outfielder Brett Gardner hit .162 (6-for-27) with a .184 on-base percentage in the previous 10 games, three of which he homered in. Gio Urshela, a career .225 hitter entering the season, was bound to cool off, and he has. In the past dozen games, Urshela has hit .179 (7-for-39) with a .603 OPS.

Then there are the 33 errors in the past 37 games — with Urshela, who showed Gold Glove ability at third earlier, leading the team with 10 miscues. Add too many plays that weren’t made but should have been. They aren’t logged as errors but hurt just as much.

“Obviously, it’s been a tough stretch for us, the last 10 days or whatever it’s been, but it’s been a little bit of everything,’’ manager Aaron Boone said following Friday night’s loss. “Some nights it has been pitching, some nights we haven’t been able to mount enough offensively. A couple of games we haven’t played clean defensively. Just got to be better overall and do it as a group. It is inevitable you are going to hit a [rough] patch. We have to play better, no question about it.’’

Getting Giancarlo Stanton back from the IL, possibly Tuesday, should help. Aaron Judge started a minor league rehab stint with Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre on Friday, and there is a chance he will return on the upcoming home stand.

Again, the rotation hasn’t been good, but more support defensively — the Yankees’ 55 errors were tied for second with the White Sox among 30 MLB teams going into Saturday’s action — and from the lineup would soften the blow a bit.

LeBron James has his man.

Pelicans superstar Anthony Davis is on his way to the Lakers, according to ESPN. The Lakers agreed to send Lonzo Ball, Brandon Ingram, Josh Hart and three 2019 first-round picks – including the No. 4 pick – in exchange for the All-Star big man.

The deal comes after the Lakers failed to acquire he disgruntled Davis, who wanted out of New Orleans, at this past season’s trade deadline. The Pelicans now hold the No. 1 and No. 4 picks in this year’s draft and James finally gets his second superstar to play with in L.A. after the team missed the playoff in his first season there.

The team tells you.

Not Brodie Van Wagenen preening that the Mets are the club to beat in the NL East. Not Mickey Callaway with his near-daily invocation that the Mets are on the brink of taking off. They are paid spokesmen for the organization. Their jobs, particularly Callaway’s in the short run, rest on the Mets playing well or, failing that, getting enough folks to buy that they soon will.

But a 162-game schedule is revelatory. A ball can bounce a few times in the NFL and turn 7-9 into 9-7. But 71-91 is not becoming 91-71 in the majors with a few quirky results. Excellence is measured day to day, month to month, relentlessly. And 43 percent into this Mets season, has anyone sensed excellence beyond the hyperbole in their spokespersons’ mouths?

Van Wagenen said Saturday that, “Coming into the games on Thursday and Friday, we were right where we wanted to be.” Really? They were 33-34 and a third-place team. Is that where they wanted to be? Is that the stuff of the team to beat?

Watch the club. That will reveal what you need to know. And what is being revealed is the Mets can bob and weave with .500, but not push beyond it. They went under on May 4 and have yet to do better than break even since. They began Saturday 33-36 with an atrocious defense and bullpen, a league-average offense and a rotation that has been good, but not as elite as hoped when brilliance is the best method to overcome the defense and pen, particularly.

Van Wagenen continued to stress his “mission statement,” which is “to win as many games as possible” in 2019. Time remained to rally. Before 1986, the trade deadline was June 15, which in 2019 was Saturday. The most traumatic moment in franchise history occurred June 15, 1977 — when Tom Seaver was traded to the Reds at the deadline.

This year’s Mets have six-plus weeks until the July 31 deadline to determine if they are going to trade more big starters, such as Zack Wheeler and maybe Noah Syndergaard. For now, Van Wagenen remains in upgrade mode. He completed a minor trade with Cleveland for Brooks Pounders, who was pitching well at Triple-A, and promoted Chris Flexen, believing the righty’s stuff will play up as a reliever. These Saturday transactions fall into the “try something” category when a bullpen is as bad as that of the Mets, who have an MLB-high 16 blown saves plus the NL’s third-worst ERA at 5.31.

“My hope is and my belief is that we can be in contention over the next several weeks and we can continue to push that gas pedal down,” Van Wagenen said.

But can these Mets really speed out of their current condition?

One bromide the Mets offered in the worst of times over the first two months was a version of, “Yeah, we are not performing well, but neither is anyone in the division.” But the Braves have surged, and the Mets began Saturday as many games back of Atlanta in the loss column (seven) as they were ahead of last-place Miami. The Nationals were playing considerably better and were a game behind the third-place Mets. The Phillies were wobbling, but still 4 ¹/₂ games ahead of the Mets and poised to be more active in the trade market.

Van Wagenen noted the home-and-home series approaching with the Braves and Phillies, interspersed with four games at Wrigley Field and two home games against the Yankees. That takes the Mets to the All-Star break.

And what can we expect of the second-half Mets? The Athletics were 34-35 through June 14 last year, then went an MLB-best 63-30 to earn a wild card. But Oakland in this century has regularly surged — the A’s have six of the 65 best second-half records since 2001. The Mets have none of those.

Will this be the year they author one? Well, do you think that is more likely than one of their starters breaking down? And if one of the starters breaks down, who exactly is going into the rotation to help a second-half surge?

“I don’t think we are looking at anything as a lost season,” Van Wagenen said. “We have talent, we have heart and we have a group of people who believe in each other and will pick each other up.”

Those are optimistic words — or spin. Watch the Mets. Do those words line up with what you are seeing? The team always tells you what you need to know.

The Rangers and Islanders are among the most aggressive teams in pursuit of Jets defenseman Jacob Trouba, The Post has learned, with the Devils also in the chase.

Trouba, the 25-year-old impending restricted free agent for whom the Jets are soliciting offers, would slide into the right side of the first pair for either club. But his acquisition would come at a steep cost, both in terms of personnel going the other way in a trade package and the long-term contract Trouba would command.

Winnipeg, according to several sources, has yet to give permission to inquiring clubs to speak with Trouba’s agent, Kurt Overhardt, about a contract. One would figure seven years at up to $7.5 million per season for the Michigan native — who recorded 50 points (8-42) last season, 13th most among defensemen. His 42 assists tied for ninth among blue-liners.

There are up to a dozen teams in the chase for Trouba, a mobile, 6-foot-3, 220-pound puck mover, transporter and power-play guy. The Jets, who are facing a serious cap crunch, are believed to be looking for a first-rounder and a pair of legitimate prospects or young NHLers in return.

The Rangers, of course, own Winnipeg’s first-rounder at 20th overall, as part of the bounty — Brendan Lemieux, too — obtained in the lend-lease deal for Kevin Hayes. General manager Jeff Gorton, whom we are told is pushing mighty hard for Trouba, could offer that pick, impending restricted free agent Pavel Buchnevich and, perhaps, Nils Lundkvist to the Jets.

That might not be enough, not with Lou Lamoriello lurking … and, for that matter, Ray Shero, as well. Both the Islanders and Devils are loaded with prospects who might be expendable in a deal for Trouba, who has played six seasons in the NHL out of the University of Michigan following his 2012 ninth-overall selection by the Jets.

Question: Does the price become too high for the Rangers if the Jets demand Lias Andersson be included in the package?

For the Islanders, would Lamoriello be willing to include defenseman Noah Dobson, last year’s 12th-overall pick, in a deal for Trouba. For the Devils, would Shero be willing to send Jesper Bratt and Jesper Boqvist or Ty Smith back the other way? Smith, almost certainly not.

The Rangers line up with Kevin Shattenkirk, Adam Fox, Tony DeAngelo and Neal Pionk on the right side. It is difficult to imagine Shattenkirk — at a $6.65 million cap hit — remaining if the Blueshirts add Trouba, who would presumably split the power-play quarterback responsibilities with Fox, the rookie out of Harvard whom the Rangers acquired from Carolina in April.

The first buyout period opened on Saturday, with the Rangers quiet. They could trim payroll by moving Jimmy Vesey ($2.275 million) and/or Vlad Namestnikov ($4 million), though the team will need people to play up front.

Or, they could go the buyout route with Shattenkirk and/or Brendan Smith ($4.35 million). Buyouts of both would represent a cap saving of approximately $7.47 million, though generating a combined $2.6 million of dead cap space down the line. There is time for those decisions — if not by the June 30 deadline, then during the second summer buyout window following arbitration filings.

But as the entry draft looms next weekend in Vancouver with the July 1 opening of the free-agent market — looking at you, Artemi Panarin — not all that far behind, the Rangers are working hard to land Trouba.
They’re not the only ones.

A group of hackers known for targeting oil and gas companies has its sights on the nation’s electric grid.

Xenotime started “probing” the networks of US electric utilities late last year, a study by Maryland-based cybersecurity group Dragos found.

So far, none of the group’s efforts have been successful, but “the persistent attempts, and expansion in scope is cause for definite concern,” the report said. It could also be a signal the group is preparing future cyberattacks.

Electric utilities and other vulnerable companies must prepare for attacks and beef up their cybersecurity capabilities, Dragos said.

Xenotime is the same group behind malware called Trisis that was deployed against a Saudi Arabian oil and gas facility in 2017. It’s the only known group that targets companies with the intent of destroying or disrupting their operations, and it has expanded globally from its original focus on the Middle East.

In a fiery, sarcastic graduation speech that went viral, the class valedictorian at a San Diego high school thanked one teacher for being a drunk and praised her guidance counselor and main office staff for their incompetence.

“To my counselor, thank you for letting me fend for myself — you were always unavailable,” Nataly Buhr snarked at one point in the speech, which repeatedly led to cheers and roars of laughter.

Buhr began the speech thanking specific teachers at the San Ysidro High School, calling them “invested” in their students’ educations and futures, CBS News reported.

Then she let some other teachers and staffers have it.

“To the teacher that was regularly intoxicated during class this year, thank you for using yourself to teach these students about the dangers of alcoholism,” she said.

The main office staff caught hell for failing to inform her until the last minute about lucrative scholarships, which “potentially caused me to miss out on thousands of dollars.”

Afterward, the school district had no comment — and Buhr’s mom, Monica, was thrilled.

“I was proud that she spoke up and got it out,” the mom told KFMB.

“It is something that takes a lot of courage to do.”
