A second unit of Jeremy Lin, Nick Young and Julius Randle will be a lot of fun. It won’t defend, but it will be entertaining.

Report: Lakers in talks to trade No. 7 pick for Klay Thompson, as part of deal that would send Kevin Love to Warriors
Jun 21, 2014, 9:30 AM EST
Deal would make sense for the Lakers, but Warriors are trying to acquire Love while keeping the Curry-Thompson backcourt intact.
Jun 19, 2014, 10:44 PM EST
Lakers don’t have any assets to trade along with the seventh overall pick, so they’re going to have to use it.

It’s not likely LeBron leaves Miami, but just in case the Lakers want to be ready.
Apr 10, 2014, 9:47 PM EST
Nick Young will almost certainly opt out of his player option for next season, but there’s still a good chance he could be back with the Lakers.

The Lakers have lost a lot of games this season (42 to be exact), but the historic 48-point blowout loss to the Clippers Thursday night on national television hit the fan base hard. Many of these fans rooting for them to lose and get a better draft pick were embarrassed at the lack of defensive…

Pau Gasol is still a Los Angeles Laker. He and his $19.3 million salary. He could have been moved at the trade deadline but the Lakers wanted assets back for the Spanish star. For example, talks with the Phoenix Suns fell apart when the Lakers wanted one of the top two of the four first…

The Lakers, already far and away leading the NBA in man-games lost to injury, continue to pad that lead. Not that they want to. Just as they got pretty much their entire point guard rotation back from injury, they have lost Nick Young for at least two weeks with a “non-displaced fracture of the patella…

The Lakers were already shorthanded heading into Wednesday’s contest against the Cavaliers, but by the time it was over, they didn’t have a combination of qualified and healthy players to even field a five-man team. L.A. led by as many as 29 points before holding on for the 119-108 victory, but things were a bit…

Late in the Timberwolves’ win over the Lakers on Tuesday, Kevin Love fell awkwardly after being fouled in the air by Robert Sacre. It initially appeared as though the problem was his tailbone, though the official reason given for him sitting out Wednesday night’s game in Oklahoma City is a stiff neck. That would make…

So much for that whole “easing him back in” thing… Steve Nash will not only be back and play for the Lakers on Tuesday night, he will start, coach Mike D’Antoni told the media, as reported by Mark Medina of the Los Angeles Daily News. Nash will play the first 5-8 minutes of the game…

Kobe Bryant is taking a $7 million pay cut next season. Of course, he’s still going to make $23 million and be the highest paid player in the NBA, which left a lot of Lakers’ fans shaking their heads. They get the business reasons this is a good deal for the Lakers, but how does…

Wise move, NBA television executives, choosing to pull Wednesday night’s Lakers at Rockets game off the national broadcast (not that the Spurs/Mavs game that replaced turned out to be a thriller). There is no Kobe Bryant and the “Dwight Howard reunion” drama had played itself out long ago. This was simply another mid-season NBA game…

With 11 seconds left and a tie game against the Lakers 103-103, the Jazz wisely put the ball in the hands of Gordon Hayward to create something. Derrick Favors came out by the arc and set a screen which Hayward used to drive right — Xavier Henry went over the top of the screen and…

There were rough patches — the 2-for-9 shooting, the eight turnovers — but there were also moments in Kobe Bryant‘s return to action Sunday night against Toronto where you said “that’s the Kobe I remember.” There was his first play, a bullet pass to Robert Sacre for an assist. Later there was the jab step…

LOS ANGELES — Kobe passed the first challenge he has set before himself. Eight months of never-ending therapy sessions and workouts to return to the court paid off — Kobe is back. He was introduced with Darth Vader’s theme music and Staples Center was buzzing like it was a playoff game. Kobe was on the court…
