Mike Trudell: Kupchak on using/not using cap space: "We don't want to use our cap room to win 40 games, which doesn't get you into the playoffs." Kupchak's focus, as always in building a team, is to use 1) the Draft; 2) Free agency; 3) Trades. All works together. Twitter @LakersReporter
Mike Bresnahan: Kupchak isn't so sure what to expect from Kobe next season. "I don't know. The make-up of the team right now is not clear enough to draw Kobe in and say ‘This is what we’re going to expect. Can you do it?’ " Twitter @Mike_Bresnahan
Serena Winters: Tarik Black on his meeting w/ Scott & Kupchak: "They definitely praised me for the potential that I have and instilled a lot of confidence and encouragement in saying that I have a bright future." Twitter @SerenaWinters
Eric Pincus: Vander Blue signed his contract at the airport - didn't have time to read it. Blue: "I literally got off the plane & played 25 minutes on the road - didn't get to warm up"- "Everyones seen my jersey" on off-centered 12 Twitter @EricPincus
