Los Angeles Lakers Rumors
Anthony Puccio: D’Angelo Russell is one of five players to record 30+ points and 10+ assists in consecutive games this season. The others? James Harden, LeBron James, Damian Lillard & Trae Young. He’s also the 1st player in franchise history with 76+ points and 22+ assists in a 2-game stretch.
The Los Angeles Lakers have signed guard Scott Machado to a 10-day contract, it was announced today.
And the timing here is crucial. The Lakers need to project stability going into yet another critical offseason if they hope to attract a second superstar to pair with James. After Paul George ignored the Lakers last summer, most league insiders believe the biggest names in this year’s loaded class of free agents will follow his lead.
