Los Angeles Rumors
Showing up to play in the Drew League in Los Angeles this week with gray hair, a gray beard and a big bald spot in the back, Muttino showed off some of the skills that earned him a 20-year career in the NBA. As The Big Lead perfectly put it, “Cuttino Mobley Dominated Drew League While Looking Like Uncle Drew.”
The Los Angeles Lakers have signed forward Brandon Bass to a multi-year contract, it was announced today by General Manager Mitch Kupchak.

The Los Angeles Lakers have signed reigning NBA Sixth Man of the Year Lou Williams to a multi-year contract, it was announced today by General Manager Mitch Kupchak. Per team policy, terms of the deal were not released. “I am pleased to welcome Lou to the Laker family,” said Kupchak. “We look forward to his contributions both on-court in bolstering our guard rotation, and also for the veteran leadership he can provide to our young players in the locker room.”
Free-agent center JaVale McGee is a serious consideration for the Los Angeles Clippers, and plans to have a telephone conversation with president and coach Doc Rivers on Saturday, league sources told Yahoo Sports. The Clippers, who lost center DeAndre Jordan to the Dallas Mavericks in free agency, are taking a strong look at McGee, league sources told Yahoo Sports. The Clippers have roughly $2.2 million in exception space left to pay a player beyond the league’s minimum salary slot of $1.4 million.
Q: Big news this week for your team was when the Los Angeles Clippers stole Paul Pierce away. What did Pierce mean to the Wizards last season? Bradley Beal: He was great for us. Definitely a mentor who was a great vet for us. He was the first one in the gym and the last one to leave. He was a professional with everything that he did. That passion and that drive I think really helped to get us to where we got to. I think his swagger and his approach to the game as well as his confidence in this team is what really pushed us all to the next level. It was great for me to be able to play with him. He’s a future hall-of-famer so I’m glad I was able to have the opportunity to play with him. I wish him nothing but the best (in Los Angeles).
Free agent DeAndre Jordan is likely looking to sign a four-year deal that allows him to opt out after three seasons, which would nullify the Los Angeles Clippers’ advantage in keeping the center, sources told ESPN on Tuesday. The Clippers could offer Jordan a deal that includes a fifth year worth $27 million.
