Sacramento Kings Rumors
Ty Lawson, the former Nuggets point guard who now plays for the Sacramento Kings, appeared in a Denver court on Thursday and denied allegations he violated his probation after pleading guilty in 2015 to driving while his ability was impaired.
The 29-year-old, through his attorney, Harvey Steinberg, asked that he be monitored by an alcohol testing device in the time before his next court hearing in six weeks. “We want to get on that (device) so Mr. Lawson can prove” he’s not using alcohol, Steinberg told the court.
Here’s how the exchange went between Lowe and Shelburne, who is as plugged into the Lakers as anyone. Shelburne: (The trade) was supposed to be Ingram and D’Angelo. That was what the Kings wanted. Lowe: Do you think when push comes to shove, the Lakers do that? Shelburne: No. Actually, I think Jim would’ve. At that moment, I heard he was very in favor of doing the trade for Cousins. (Cousins) is a great player and the Lakers feel like they need a great player and every organization at some level has to have that confidence to say well it didn’t work over there but we can make it work here.
