The Clippers offseason rebranding, I'm told, will not include a name change.

I'm hearing the Clippers are exploring changing their logo, colors and uniforms and could introduce changes as early as this summer.

Arash Markazi

Doc Rivers on Gregg Popovich: "I think every coach in the league wants to be like Pop. Players want to be like Mike we want to be like Pop."

Bill Oram

I don't know. Think repeatedly dropping that she's on TV is sign of one getting to big for her britches. twitter.com/LALocalOne/sta…

Ben Bolch

Jamal Crawford on Spurs' ability to win without homecourt advantage: "They can play anywhere. You can take them to Mars."

Mike Trudell

One more note: Kupchak said he believes Julius Randle lost 18 pounds since December. Could be big for quickness, first step.

Ben Bolch

Doc Rivers compared me to a 2-year-old tattletale because I asked for a response to Charles Barkley's comments. Haha.

Mike Trudell

And …. that concludes 2014-15 exit interviews.

Ben Bolch

DeAndre Jordan on Charles Barkley's criticism of his offense: "How many rings does Charles Barkley have?"

Mike Trudell

Kupchak said the Lakers will not jeopardize having Julius Randle fully healthy by October for Summer League, but it's a realistic goal.

Kamenetzky Brothers

... Mitch: Given opportunity to make = offers, LA has advantage. Q is whether that advantage is larger than bigger $ others can offer. BK

Serena Winters

Mitch Kupchak thinks that Summer League is a realistic expectation for Julius Randle, but says "the real goal is October."

Mike Trudell

Kupchak: "We're very impressed with (Randle's) maturity. He's clearly eager to get back on the court." Said he was a real student this year.

Kamenetzky Brothers

Mitch: "I think the biggest advantage we have (selling FA's) is the city of Los Angeles and our fans." ... BK

Mike Trudell

Kupchak: "I think the biggest advantage we have is the city of Los Angeles and our fans. Our legacy is (a consideration)."

Serena Winters

Mitch Kupchak on possibly the biggest advantage the Lakers have: "city of Los Angeles & our fans."

Bill Oram

In free agency, Kupchak said, "I think the biggest advantage we have is the city of Los Angeles and our fans.”

Kevin Ding

Kupchak: “Makeup of the team right now is just not clear enough for us to drop Kobe in and say, ‘This is what we expect. Can you do it?’ ”

Mike Bresnahan

MK: "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?’ "

Mike Trudell

Kupchak said having space in 2015-16 could be a "strategic advantage" given how much the cap will increase in 2016-17.

Mike Bresnahan

Kupchak isn't so sure what to expect from Kobe next season. "I don't know." (1/2)

Mike Bresnahan

Did Kupchak have any regrets last two years? "I do wish that we would have been able to keep Pau Gasol. He's still playing at a high level."

Mike Trudell

Kupchak on TV $: "It's pretty crazy. We spend a lot of time looking at spreadsheets and the new CBA to figure out what players will do."

Serena Winters

Kupchak: "I thought Ed had a great year. We had several guys that came here on 1 yr deals that really played basketball the right way"

Serena Winters

Kupchak also says he assumes Ed Davis will opt out of his player option, though he said it wasn't specifically discussed in their meeting

Serena Winters

Mitch Kupchak honestly on what he expects from Kobe next season: "I don't know."

Mike Trudell

Kupchak: "It's not to say the only player we'll spend our money on this summer is a max player," but LAL want top talent.

Gary Lee

"We rarely sell the past and the legacy here" - GM Mitch Kupchak on recruiting upcoming free agents. lakersnation.com/mitch-kupchak-…

Mike Trudell

Kupchak was impressed with Ed Davis, whom he expects to opt out of his player option for 2015-16: "We'd love to have Ed Davis on our team."

Serena Winters

Mitch Kupchak: "We’d love to have Ed Davis on our team."

Bill Oram

Mitch on Ed Davis: "He clearly helped himself by coming here this year. ... We'd love to have Ed Davis on our team."

Mike Trudell

2/2: Kupchak's focus, as always in building a team, is to use 1) the Draft; 2) Free agency; 3) Trades. All works together.

Mike Trudell

1/2: 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."
