Lakers will apply for disabled player exception following Nash news. If granted, exception would be worth roughly $4.85 million.
Scott said he has not spoken with Nash. Said he prefers to let him come to grips with this reality first. "You need to give them some space"
Scott thought Nash's season would be like last year. Didn't see him missing the whole year. "I had no idea, I didn’t sense this whatsoever.”
Scott declined to talk Nash specifics: "I might have stayed at a Holiday Inn last night but I’m not a doctor." He actually stayed at the MGM
Byron Scott says Lakers are "probably going to have to look for another" point guard to bolster depth.
To clarify, Lin's not complaining about not starting. But he said his experience in Houston is preparing him for a backseat if necessary.
Don Mattingly will be the Dodgers' manager next season. http://t.co/iW4ZFjid2Q
Ronnie Price starts for Lakers tonight at PG. Lin, who will come off bench: "One thing I've leaned...nothing's guaranteed in this league."
This seriously blows my mind. http://t.co/RNxaWZjeON
Just realized in lines released YESTERDAY by @bovadalv the over/under on games played for Steve Nash was 51 1/2. Who got that action?
Large coffee in the lobby Starbucks of @renaissanceLV: $4.32. No wonder everyone goes home broke.
Mattingly's initial conversations with Friedman went well, source said. He cane away feeling Friedman liked "continuity"
Just a prediction, but if the Celtics waive Will Bynum, I can see the Lakers signing him.
Source close to Mattingly said he's "heard nothing from the Dodgers & doesn't anticipate hearing anything" beyond initial conversations ...
Dodgers source says Maddon news reported by Buster Olney has "nothing to do with us"
Andrew Friedman said Don Mattingly would manage the Dodgers next season last week. Then again, Joe Maddon wasn't available then.
Remember when Orlando swung and miss on the Grant Hill / T-Mac experiment. It happens to franchises.
In 2012, the Lakers swung for the fences on Dwight and Nash and missed. Thats why Lakers are now in rebuilding mode. Plain and simple.
I believe Peyton just told the fans of Denver they should buy a Buick. BK
Something doesn't quite fit here. http://t.co/Z8XnFaHqD9
... what roster decision they would make. Price/Ellington put Lakers at 15. Would have to waive Ellington before using exception.
Lakers presumably wll be granted disabled player exception, which they could sign or trade for a player making ~$4.85 million.Question is...
Steve Nash wasn't just a Hall of Fame player, he was a Hall of Fame person. One of the nicest guys ever. Bummed L.A. never got to see both.
Is this the end of Steve Nash's career? He announces he wont play this season, his 19th. A sad ending
While it's depressing today, it's less depressing to see Nash end it now than play this out over 82 games of can he play tonight? BK
It is so beyond depressing to see a career like Steve Nash's go out like the sports equivalent of Old Yeller. AK
Steve Nash's time with the Lakers wasn't what we expected, but an incredible journey for a person who defied the odds throughout his career.
Kupchak: “..but unfortunately he simply hasn’t been able to get there up to this point in time.”
“We know how hard he’s worked the last two years to try to get his body right for the rigors of the NBA, and how badly he wants to play…”
Kupchak on Nash: “As disappointed as we are for ourselves and our fans, we’re even more disappointed for Steve”
Nash: "I will continue to support my team during this period of rest, and will focus on my long-term health.”
Nash: “I work very hard to stay healthy and unfortunately my recent setback makes performing at full capacity difficult.”
Steve Nash: “Being on the court this season has been my top priority and it is disappointing to not be able to do that right now,”
Lakers just announced that Steve Nash is out for the season, meaning his Hall of Fame career is likely over.
Statements from Nash and Kupchak http://t.co/BQcC6nYIT2
Lakers announce Steve Nash is out for the season, effectively ending the 40-year-old's career.
It’s been decided that Steve Nash will be out for the season due to a recurring back injury. http://t.co/XEQ6gbkG7z
Nash hasn't determined whether he will retire, according to a person familiar with the situation. He'll figure that out at some point soon.
Ronnie Price, Lakers starting point god.
In SportsCenter interview, Jeanie Buss calls free agents who wouldnt want to play with Kobe "losers" and wouldnt want them on the Lakers.
