Lakers players say Walton has stayed on an even keel throughout a brutal campaign. “It’s been Luke every day,” says veteran swingman Metta World Peace. “It’s just been him. And that’s hard to do. He has a hard job, but he’s making it look real easy.” Says veteran forward Luol Deng, “He’s human. He has times where you can tell he’s frustrated. There’s times when he’s extra happy or extra proud of the guys. But, for the most part, he’s maintained.”

The Los Angeles Lakers have effectively shut down healthy veterans Luol Deng and Timofey Mozgov for the rest of the season to give the majority of playing time over the final 15 games to their younger players, sources told ESPN. Deng and Mozgov were the Lakers’ big free-agent acquisitions last summer, signing contracts worth a combined $136 million over four seasons. Neither has been particularly effective in their first season with the Lakers: Mozgov averaged 7.4 points and 4.9 rebounds in nearly 21 minutes a game; Deng averaged 7.6 points and 5.3 rebounds in nearly 27 minutes a game.
