Any undefeated teams in the summer league?
Lakers have also waived Kendall Marshall. And still no follow back from Kobe Bryant =( http://t.co/cDQPtKGSnV
At the moment, Lakers PG depth looks something like Nash-Lin-Clarkson. But that's assuming a healthy Nash. Otherwise seems a bit thin.
Marshall appeared in 54 games with the Lakers last season (45 starts), averaging 8 pts, 8.8 assists.
Marshall had averaged 8.3 ppg, 3 apg at Vegas Summer League. Added Jordan Clarkson, Jeremy Lin this summer at PG.
Lakers basic problem: Trying to rebuild while trying to compete means serving two masters, and the former suffers/extends w/ the latter. BK
The Lakers have waived Kendall Marshall.
BREAKING: Xavier Henry re-signs with the Lakers. http://t.co/gxF6g46s1H
Henry also fielded some interest from MIA and IND, but preferred to stay in LA and build on what he established last season
The Lakers have reached a one-year agreement to bring back Xavier Henry on a minimum contract, per league sources.
The NFL hasn't played a game in LA since Christmas Eve 1994. Hosting the 2015 NFL draft would be a step in the right direction for a return.
Lakers make it official that they landed Boozer through amnesty waiver claim.
LeBron James, Kyrie Irving & Kevin Love > LeBron James, Dwyane Wade & Chris Bosh
Maybe the problem with Byron is holes in the resume? New Jersey Nets? New Orleans Hornets? THOSE TEAMS DON'T EVEN EXIST! BK
Like Kaman last season, Boozer is this year’s “pointless” signing for the Lakers. AK
If the Lakers were playing for something this year, I'd feel differently. Boozer could help. But they're not, so it's counterproductive. BK
Guess we know what the B in the Lakers' Plan B stood for: Boozer, Carlos
It's also worth noting: NOBODY LIKES CARLOS BOOZER. Like, nobody. Mrs. Boozer probably doesn't like Carlos Boozer. BK
The way this makes sense: The Lakers think he's awful, but know fans will recognize the name, see it as a positive. Best of both worlds. BK
As I said before, I don’t see the point w/Boozer. Not gonna make them contenders. Blocks Randle, Kelly. And no, he’s not a center. AK
The Lakers clearly have absolutely no self-awareness right now. BK
Lakers taking Carlos Boozer instead of giving time to a more developmental player reflects a desire to compete better now.
Reggie Bullock and C.J. Wilcox round out the current 12-man roster with three spots available.
Clippers Two-Deep: 1. C.Paul – J.Farmar 2. J.Redick – J.Crawford 3. M.Barnes – J.Dudley 4. B.Griffin – G.Davis 5. D.Jordan – S.Hawes
I gotta make it..
Oh man, a throwback to college newspapering, thanks to the Montana J-School's centennial publication. http://t.co/8RRgTlrbzU
Randle said Summer League is easier offensively than NCAA in the sense that the spacing on the floor allows for more room to operate.
Asked Randle his preference on O. Said he likes to start facing up if possible against bigger players. Will take smaller guys in the post.
Julius Randle on the Lakers fan experience at Summer League: "It's ridiculous. It's kind of like Vegas is L.A. almost."
Julius Randle on Las Vegas: "It's almost like it's L.A. here." Lakers fans everywhere.
L.A. shot just 34.8% and committed 24 turnovers, hitting only 3 of 23 triples and 14 of 21 free throws in the loss to Philly.
FINAL: Lakers lose to the 76ers, 85-63. Julius Randle and Kevin Murphy led the way with 12 a piece.
Well, I mean this is the Orlando Summer League CHAMPION Philadelphia 76ers we're talking about ...
LAL chopped 12 points off PHI's halftime lead to make it a 66-56 deficit after 3. Draft picks Randle & Clarkson continue to play well.
At the end of three quarters here in Vegas, Lakers trail by 10 to the Philadelphia 76ers, 66-56.
Julius Randle in 16 minutes tonight: 10 points (4 of 9 FG's), 5 boards, 3 assists, 1 steal, 1 block, 3 TO's. Some good, versatile stuff.
