Los Angeles Lakers VIDEOS
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. "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. Twitter @LakersReporter
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." Twitter @Mike_Bresnahan
Serena Winters: Kupchak asked about using Lakers past to recruit: "When we entertain or recruit free agents, we rarely sell the past or the legacy here. That’s not something we feel like we have to sell….and frankly, they don't want to hear about it." Twitter @SerenaWinters
Mike Trudell: 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." Kupchak's focus, as always in building a team, is to use 1) the Draft; 2) Free agency; 3) Trades. All works together. Twitter @LakersReporter
