Just did a phone interview with new Lakers big man @Ed Davis. Article will be up in the morning. I'll tweet it out when it's on the site.

Chris Palmer

Hindsight: Lakers should have made Eric Bledsoe their No. 1 target. Melo was never coming.

Alex Kennedy

I still can't believe the Lakers were able to sign Ed Davis to a 2-year, $2 million deal (with a player option next season). That's a steal.

Alex Kennedy

Check out the Lakers' salary page on @BBallInsiders to see who they've committed money to over the next five years: basketballinsiders.com/los-angeles-la…

Eric Pincus

Lakers have chosen to celebrate my birthday tomorrow by introducing Ed Davis at 11am

Alex Kennedy

We interviewed several Lakers (including Julius Randle and Jordan Clarkson among others) in Vegas. Videos here: basketballinsiders.com/los-angeles-la…

Arash Markazi

Consensus from Lakers fans tweeting at me is Byron Scott is a better coach than Doc Rivers. Perfectly reasonable assertion.

Arash Markazi

Sorry Lakers fans, Doc Rivers won't be the next Lakers coach. Even if he left the Clippers, he has two years left on a 3-year contract.

Parsons said Clippers TV deal won't similar to the Lakers TV deal. "The Clippers are not the Lakers yet."

Kent Bazemore

It's tough to maintain greatest,salute to you brotha @Kobe Bryant and to the @Los Angeles Lakers org., thank you for helping me with my bucket list! #TTW

Eric Pincus

After signing Young, Kelly, Lakers have climbed over NBA's salary cap - very little spending power left latimes.com/sports/lakers/…

Gary Lee

According to @danielbuergeLA, here’s how development and experience is most important for the 2014-15 Lakers. lakersnation.com/for-lakers-in-…

Janis Carr

Lakers will introduce three players this week -- Davis, Lin and Boozer -- but no word on a coach #coachkobe

Chris Sheridan

With @Pau Gasol on board, can #Bulls play hi-lo with Noah & Gibson the way #Lakers did with Pau & Bynum? #NBA sheridanhoops.com/2014/07/22/bau…

Charles F. Gardner

Marshall blossomed under Mike D'Antoni with the Lakers last season after a brief D-League stint. Now he gets a chance to play for J Kidd.

David Brickley

Also, whats not mentioned is how Melo was impressed that the Lakers take care of their stars and didn't ask KB to take major pay-cut.

Gary Lee

Jeremy Lin seems excited for a fresh start with the Lakers and he hopes for a more important role next season. lakersnation.com/lakers-news-je…

Eric Pincus

From Shawn Marion's perspective - or my interpretation of what it would be - Lakers w/8 forwards and a so-so team in West for min? Nah

Eric Pincus

Lakers essentially have 8 forwards - no, they're not getting Shawn Marion (opinion but come on)

Eric Pincus

Remember - Lakers couldn't sign Jordan Hill until they used their cap room on Nick Young

Eric Pincus

Updated the @BBallInsiders Los Angeles Lakers Team Salary - Ryan Kelly, Swaggy P - $1.08 mil left of Room Ex. basketballinsiders.com/los-angeles-la…

Eric Pincus

The Lakers are basically down to minimum signings give or take (what's left of Room Ex isn't much to speak of $1.1 mil)

Eric Pincus

Also - stretching Nash would put Lakers at $5.3 mil in cap space - but take away $3.2 mil in 2015 and 2016 - don't see that either

Eric Pincus

I don't expect Lakers to trade Nash for nothing though . . .

Eric Pincus

Lakers salary including 3 min cap holds is $63.7 mil - over the cap - trading Nash for no salary would get team to $8.6 mil under

Eric Pincus

My suspicion, for those keeping track, Lakers likely renounced Young and Kelly before re-signing - not official, but what the math suggests

Eric Pincus

If Carlos Boozer was a free agent - Lakers might have used their Room Exception on him if he'd take it - so arguably a wash- but no Marshall

Eric Pincus

Essentially claiming Carlos Boozer cost the Lakers their Room Exception and Kendall Marshall - from a perspective anyway

Eric Pincus

I had broken down on twitter (and in the LAT blog) the Lakers' cap situation - expected Kelly to be part or all of team's Room Exception

Eric Pincus

The Lakers should have $1.08 mil of their room exception left - which is less than some minimum salaries (depending on years of service)

Brad Turner

Former Lakers star Michael Cooper is diagnosed with tongue cancer fw.to/iNgiZGS

Eric Pincus

Nick Young will make $4,994,420 this season and $21.3 million over his contract with Lakers

Eric Pincus

Ryan Kelly officially re-signs with Lakers - for 2 years - terms still TBD latimes.com/sports/lakers/…

Janis Carr

Lakers take care of business Monday officially sign Nick Young and Ryan Kelly. Now, about that coaching spot.....

Arash Markazi

"You get a two-year deal! And you get a two-year deal! And you get a two-year deal!" #Lakers #TheRebuild

Marc Stein

Official numbers on Ryan Kelly's new deal with Lakers: $1,650,000 in 2014-15, $1,724,250 in 2015-16

Magic Johnson

We gave the Amadeus staff Dodgers hats, Lakers hats and jackets! http://t.co/QtGadVb3Wt

Lakers great Michael Cooper diagnosed with cancer dlvr.it/6Nm7pH

Marcelo Bousquet

Mala noticia: Michael Cooper, pieza fundamental del Showtime de Lakers en los 80, tiene cáncer de lengua. Aunque dicen que no está avanzado

Ryan Kelly

So happy to continue my career with the @lakers #Godisgood !! I am very blessed! #lakeshow instagram.com/p/quqb_Qk7E7/

Arash Markazi
