And so it begins! Lakers start their pre-draft workouts tomorrow morning. Will be bringing you coverage from the Lakers facility.

Matt Steinmetz

Lakers weren't ready to play back in 1985 in Game 1 vs. Celtics. They lost 148-114. Won Finals in 6 games. This is rule more than exception.

Peter Vecsey

K.C. Jones turned 83 today & Celt teammate Bill Sharman, who had KC alongside him w Stars & Lakers, would've turned 89 Sent from my iPhone

Kobe Bryant on Lakers' Draft: 'Don't Pick a Player That Sucks' - goo.gl/alerts/8RHw #GoogleAlerts

Christopher Reina

The Knicks, Bulls and Lakers should be the NBA's three tentpole franchises and instead are mired in their own unique brands of dysfunction.

Baxter Holmes

On @br_radio, Lakers GM Mitch Kupchak said of Kobe Bryant: “He indicated to me, a year or two ago, that this was the last deal."

Steve Kyler

Lakers would have to pick up his option before the draft, not likely... on either front. twitter.com/Jared_M_Lizzi4…

Steve Kyler

Lakers are in a great spot for this draft class - they catch either big guy and they are really set going forward. twitter.com/Momotaros_KP/s…

Chris Sheridan

Never a bad idea to read up on the #Lakers and their luck. @Mark Heisler column: dailynews.com/sports/2015052…

Steve Kyler

Oh, not saying that I didn't have my team (psst it was the Lakers) - but in 17 years doing this that's gone away. twitter.com/scallionwag/st…

Steve Kyler

Lakers fan right? --- Buck are not trading @Giannis Antetokounmpo and he and Parker will be fine together twitter.com/kraftwerk355/s…

Ethan Strauss

Been so long since someone other than LeBron won the East that Lakers-Celtics were the Finals teams

Ethan J. Skolnick

Mitch Kupchak, Lakers GM, tells us that keeping the No. 2 pick is "probably the direction we'll go." @BR_Radio

Tom Moore

See if NYK want Okafor. Can still get Mudiay at 4. RT @thj0226 @A5hunnit @Tom Moore so Towns goes 1, Lakers take Russell, you're taking ??

Howard Beck

Our thanks again to @Jonathan Abrams. Coming up in a few, we'll be joined by Lakers GM Mitch Kupchak.

Tom Moore

Unlikely but possible. RT @Phila_delphi Tom, I need someone to tell me Lakers aren't going to steal Russell from us. Keeping me up at night

Tomorrow (9-11am) on "NBA Sunday Tip" on @br_radio w/ @Howard Beck ... Lakers GM Mitch Kupchak, @Rachel__Nichols @Jonathan Abrams & @Marc J. Spears

Eric Pincus

FWIW - Lakers may work out some 50+ players the next few weeks in preparation for 27/34th picks (plus 2nd)

Eric Pincus

Hearing that both the Lakers and Clippers (separately) will be working out Bowling Green's Richaun Holmes in early Jun, 6'10" 21-year old PF

Kurt Helin

Lakers GM: If free agents don’t choose L.A. because of Kobe Bryant, ‘we don’t want them. You should go someplace… dlvr.it/9xSbBr

Tom Moore

Probably not (or Towns). RT @WiLLSee4real: @M_Einslin @Tom Moore Don't think Lakers pass on Okafor.

Brian Mahoney

Came across preseason email that had McHale as most likely to get fired first, and Knicks & Lakers better title odds than Hawks. Um, no.

Steve Kyler

You have to keep up -- at no point did I say the Knicks or Lakers would do such a deal -- simply that I would twitter.com/SportCritik/st…

Gary Lee

Who should the Lakers select with the No. 2 pick? Click and vote here: woobox.com/mxw3dg http://t.co/8A5NUXgJUR

Steve Kyler

Again -- simply saying I would do it -- not saying Knicks or Lakers would. twitter.com/bbhkf78/status…

Steve Kyler

Would be surprising if its not... but you also have to keep in mind who the Lakers may pursue in free agency too. twitter.com/dmc_21/status/…

Ryan Ward

Pre-draft workouts for Lakers will be held on Tues & Thurs at team’s practice facility in El Segundo. Uncertain which players will attend.

Mark Medina

Lakers will hold pre-draft workouts next Tuesday and Thursday at their practice facility. Currently unclear which prospects will be there

Eric Pincus

Lakers GM Mitch Kupchak: Kobe Bryant (still) likely to retire in 2016 - nothing new here (read it though please) latimes.com/sports/lakers/…

Eric Pincus

Lakers GM Mitch Kupchak: No. 2 pick won't lead to immediate NBA title latimes.com/sports/lakers/…

Tim Kawakami

OK, since I'm using Twitter as my worksheet, let's clarify: If GSWs get to finals, they'd match 2004 Lakers for most time zones traveled...

Tim Kawakami

There's one I missed: 2004 Lakers had Central, Central, Central, then lost to Detroit (Eastern). twitter.com/CSNKevin/statu…

Tim Kawakami

The '88 champion Lakers traveled the most combined time zones in this period--8 total (including 3 TZs vs. Detroit in the finals).

Derek Bodner

For those asking, I would trade Noel + something for Towns. Lakers pick might be too much, but I'd seriously consider.

Gary Lee

With three draft picks on June 25, Lakers are expected to 'bring in 50-60 players' to workout for them. lakersnation.com/lakers-news-te…
