Haley was a free spirit. When he was with the Los Angeles Lakers in the 1991-92 season, they played preseason games in Europe. Haley stopped by the grave of Jim Morrison of The Doors and left a bottle of whiskey as a symbol of tribute. His affection for music didn't end there. Haley actually has a bit role in Aerosmith's "Love In An Elevator" video. FoxSports.com

Price added he “absolutely” would remain interested in staying with the Lakers even as a third-string point guard. The Lakers appear invested in developing rookie guard Jordan Clarkson and could also upgrade the position through free agency (Rajon Rondo, Goran Dragic) or through the NBA Draft. Price also added he would like more stability after having various stops in Sacramento (2005-07), Utah (2007-11), Phoenix (2011-12), Portland (2012-13) and Orlando (2013-14). “I would love to have a chance to play for Byron Scott again. I respect him as a coach and respect his leadership,” said Price, who joined the Lakers this season on a one-year, non-guaranteed deal worth $1.3 million. “Byron stayed consistent throughout the entire year as far as what he expects from us, what he wants us to do on the floor and how we’re supposed to approach the game.” Los Angeles Daily News

Consider the feeling mutual. “He’s definitely a guy we’ll consider,” Scott said of Price before the Lakers played the Golden State Warriors on Monday night at Oracle Arena. “He showed he can play and he is a type of guy you want on a team. But we have to see what we do in the draft and free agent market.” Los Angeles Daily News

The Lakers cleared Randle last week to rehab his leg in weight-bearing exercises. He also has completed light shooting sessions. Scott said Randle also will travel with the Lakers next week, including stops in Oklahoma City (March 24), Minnesota (March 25), Toronto (March 27), Brooklyn (March 29) and Philadelphia (March 30). “You could see he was a pretty sharp kid, had a good basketball IQ, picked things up quickly and asked very good questions,” Scott said of Randle during training camp. “I don’t think the learning curve will take a long time. It’s just a matter of getting back into the swing of things.” Los Angeles Daily News

These days, Shammgod is not a performer but a teacher, a role he has always enjoyed. He said he showed Kobe Bryant dribble moves when they were both at the prestigious ABCD summer camp in high school. When Shammgod played in China, he worked with guards on the national team there. In the past three years at Providence, he has had a role in the development of guards Bryce Cotton and Kris Dunn, who were both first-team all-Big East selections. New York Times
