New story: Rob Pelinka called the addition of Rui Hachimura a proud moment for the franchise and explained what it will take for LAL to part with those future 1st round picks in subsequent trades bit.ly/3j3KQfK12:09 AM

This game is a really good example of why the Lakers traded for a Rui Hachimura-sized player. AK – 11:02 PM

Excellent and-1 bucket by Deni Avdija in his first game since Tommy Sheppard said the Hachimura trade was partly about clearing the way for him to take on a larger role. pic.twitter.com/dOHy6QtI0j10:39 PM

The newest Laker Rui Hachimura getting a workout in before the game. He’s not making his debut tonight. Rob Pelinka loved Hachimura coming out of Gonzaga and was high on him in that draft so he’s happy to get him now. pic.twitter.com/bFyfQ4Bfjv10:10 PM

Mike Trudell @LakersReporter
Hachimura told people around him in college at Gonzaga that he wanted L.A. to be his home after playing in the city at then Staples Center.
He cited the weather at first, but significantly, said he has family and friends here, with 🇯🇵 only a 9-hour flight away. – 9:01 PM
Chase Hughes @ChaseHughesNBCS
Will Barton is now in the game and just hit a corner 3. He was out of the rotation, but the Hachimura trade and Porzingis injury have evidently opened the door for him. – 8:59 PM
Kyle Goon @kylegoon
Rob Pelinka, talking about the Rui Hachimura deal, says it doesn’t mean the Lakers are finished in the trade market before the deadline. – 8:55 PM

Dave McMenamin @mcten
Rob Pelinka said the Rui Hachimura trade was “an opportunity to strike early” in a mostly dormant trade market so far but added, “it doesn’t mean our work is finished.” – 8:53 PM
Mike Trudell @LakersReporter
Rui Hachimura told us on a @SpectrumSN interview (coming up on the pregame show) that he chose No. 8 in part due to being a Kobe fan growing up, and also because part of his name means 8 in Japanese.
With Kobe’s No. 8 retired, Hachimura will wear 28 as a Laker. – 8:52 PM
Kyle Goon @kylegoon
Seems like Phil Handy is getting a feel for what Rui Hachimura can do. They’ve done some catch and shoot, some corner threes stepping into the shot, and some post-up work like this. Rui seems to be in a good mood. pic.twitter.com/tCigMNDcqF8:17 PM

PMers: The Wizards, again, had to salvage rather than build w/the trade of former first-rounder Rui Hachimura Monday. Now they must try and turn the three second-round picks they got from the Lakers into someone that can make a difference. In @TheAthletic: bit.ly/3HtSPfF5:00 PM

I dove deep on the Rui Hachimura trade to the Lakers.
-Why and how Rui struggled in Washington
-Why I have some questions on if he’ll help LA if they make the playoffs
-Why I think this move probably still made sense for the Lakers to make.

The NBA franchises that perform well year-in, year-out tend to be the ones that consistently draft well. That is the crux of the Washington Wizards’ current predicament: They haven’t drafted well in recent years, as the Rui Hachimura trade demonstrates.

Hey! I wrote a bunch about Rui Hachimura, who he is and isn’t as a player at this point, and his fit on the Lakers. A substantial scouting deep dive on an interesting trade for LA:

The Washington Wizards drafted Rui Hachimura ninth overall in 2019. Trading him on Monday reflects the Wizards’ Achilles’ heel: their inability in recent years to build through the draft. Here’s my column for @TheAthletic:
