The Lakers’ newcomers in Roy Hibbert, Lou Williams and Brandon were all asked if Bryant touched base with them at all ever since joining the purple and gold. Hibbert shook his head ‘no.’ Williams and Bass continuously stared at Hibbert. Bass soon smiled over the awkward silence. But instead of considering this a red flag in future team chemistry, Lakers general manager Mitch Kupchak represented one of many who found the incident amusing. “It’s kind of comical and funny to be honest with you,” Kupchak said recently on SiriusXM NBA Radio with Brian Geltzeiler and Rick Mahorn. “It was a good moment in TV. They asked a question and the three players kind of looked at each other and kind of just shrugged their shoulders, ‘No.”

Bass believes that he can help the young players with the everyday things needed to survive in the NBA. He spoke about things such as keeping the body right, nutrition, and proper workout and practice habits that he can provide to the young Lakers. Spending the last four seasons with the Boston Celtics also has given Bass an inside look at the NBA’s premier rivalry. Bass said that coaches would downplay it, especially in recent years, but he could tell with how players like Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett prepared that it was a special game.

Prior to acquiring Hibbert, the Lakers committed $21 million to Williams over three years, paying him a flat $7 million per season. The Lakers also locked in Bass on a two-year, $6.1-million deal with a player option on the second season. The former Boston Celtics forward will make $3.0 million for 2015-16. Brown, the 34th overall pick in June’s NBA draft, was given a strong commitment from the Lakers with a three-year deal. His first season will be for a fully guaranteed $700,000 — above the rookie minimum of $525,093.
