The Los Angeles Lakers played terribly for nearly three quarters in Tuesday’s game against the Chicago Bulls. Luckily, they were able to mount a huge comeback and head coach Luke Walton believed two people were responsible for turning the tide: Julius Randle and Josh Hart. “We had to find people to spark us. Once we got sparked, our guys did a great job,” Walton said. “Julius was a big part of that, Josh Hart was a big part of that. As far as changing our aggression and energy level. In the second half we played at a much better level of pace and control of the game.” I think it took Julius and Josh getting put in the game, two of our tougher players, to really spark the energy and effort level. Once we got it, we didn’t turn it off.”
As ESPN.com’s Ramona Shelburne recently reported, Deng would welcome a move out of Los Angeles since he’s well outside of head coach Luke Walton’s rotation. If up to 10 franchises have the cap space necessary to take on Deng’s contract, what kind of price would the Lakers have to pay to make a deal? “I would say a [first-round pick] with a good chance to convey in the lottery,” said an executive with another franchise. “I would say that’s in addition to Julius Randle unless the protections were very favorable to the receiving team.”
