The Summer Lakers were a rough watch for five games or so, but over the last two? A lot more fun! Thursday, the SPL crew won its second straight game, beating the Summer Cavs in a nailbiter. They were led by Dalton Knecht, Bronny James and Colin Castleton. Knecht is the only guy in the group expected to play a regular role on the big club, and he c…

The disappointment with missing out on Gary Trent Jr. for a minimum contract continued into Wednesday, at least on the show's YouTube page. Beyond all the contextual reasons why Trent might choose the Bucks over the Lakers -- cleaner fit, bigger role, chemistry with Dame, etc. -- there is a feeling that the Lakers simply can't lure players the way …

For much of the offseason, the inability of the Lakers to make anything happen with the roster has been a point of frustration for fans. But then again, there were always extenuating circumstances. Contextually, the Lakers either couldn't offer the right role, the right money, or the right role with the right money. They lack trade pieces teams see…

The US Men's National Team typically has some games in their prep for Olympic competition that give people reason to worry. Monday vs. Australia, they had just that, squeaking by the Aussies by six. People didn't like the results, but if you're just focused on the Lakers, it's harder to complain. Anthony Davis once again had an excellent game in re…

As it becomes more likely that the Lakers will head to training camp with the roster as currently constructed, more focus is being put on how new head coach JJ Redick might manage those players. What could the Lakers look like offensively? How will they look to improve their player development? What does that mean, beyond just working with the youn…

Well, if Anthony Davis and LeBron James are going to play in the Olympics - scaring many Lakers fans in the process - they might as well look good. And man alive, did Davis do just that on Wednesday in Vegas against Team Canada. 10 points, 11 rebounds, two assists, two steals and four blocks in only 19 minutes. That's some serious production. So wh…

On the one hand, it's obviously an honor to represent your country in the Olympics. You can't begrudge players for taking advantage of the opportunity to play when its given. And no question, LeBron James and Anthony Davis are both worthy of a spot on the roster. So kudos to them, go bring home a gold medal. On the other... those guys have a lot of…

There is tremendous frustration among Lakers fans about the inactivity in the offseason to this point. That much is clear. But how much has that frustration colored the view of how good the team actually is? The Lakers were a very, very un-fun squad last year. There was a poor vibe around the team for most of the year, and that sucked a lot of life…

The Lakers would love to improve their standing in the Western Conference, which would likely require figuring out how to drop some of the lesser players on the 15 man roster. Easy enough to dump a guy like Cam Reddish on another team, tossing in a second rounder for their trouble, right? Well, not really. The Lakers don't have a lot of second roun…

LeBron James, officially up and practicing with Team USA in preparation for the Paris Olympics, met with the media over the weekend. He talked about Bronny, and what has been a very, very quiet offseason. James didn't give a full throated defense of the front office, but he didn't fillet them, either. There was a strong, "it is what it is" kind of …

As expected, or at least as expected around these parts, LeBron James signed his new deal with the Lakers on Saturday and left just enough money on the table to keep the Lakers under the threshold for the dreaded second apron, where the NBA makes player transactions incredibly hard to execute. The difference in the contracts isn't massive - just un…

The inevitable happened on Wednesday, as the Lakers and LeBron James agreed to a two year contract for max (or near max -- getting to that in a moment) money, about $104 million. The second year? A player option. So there's a good chance LeBron and the Lakers are right back here next year. It means, first and foremost, that the window LeBron opened…

Rob Pelinka's window to shop is apparently closing. As expected, the Lakers and LeBron James have come to an agreement for his next deal, and since the Lakers couldn't make a big move, LeBron will be signing for the max, or really, really close to it. Reportedly, the deal is for two years, with a player option in year two (you've seen this structur…

Another day, another 24 hours of inaction from the Lakers. No trades, no signings, no nothin'. Not even an assistant coach to start populating JJ Redick's staff. None of this is to say the Lakers aren't trying, or are just killin' time before the regular season starts. Surely they're working the phones, and diligently trying to find some assistant …

Was Klay Thompson a good idea? A bad idea? Well, the Lakers were, according to Chris Haynes of Bleacher Report, willing to go as high as three or four years around $20 mil a year for Thompson. And, he has, reportedly, decided to go to the Mavericks instead. But whether the Lakers dodged a bullet or not, the fact remains they haven't done anything y…

The Lakers are trying to find ways to upgrade the roster, and in less than 24 hours since free agency opened, the names attached to them have been flying off the board. James Harden. Jonas Valanciunus. And now Klay Thompson, who felt like the guy with the best odds, between having grown up in L.A. rooting for the Lakers, his father Mychal's past/cu…

Free agency kicked off Sunday, and while it's moving slower than previous seasons—thanks, new CBA—it wasn't without any action. But for the Lakers, the big stuff happened before the opening bell. First, LeBron James opted out of his contract, though with the assumption that he's going to come back. There's no risk now of him leaving (whatever risk …

The consensus opinion coming out of the first round of the NBA Draft was that the Lakers picked up, if not a steal of the night, a steal in Tennessee guard/forward Dalton Knecht. Well, to learn more about the guy, we went to someone who watched every game the guy played with the Volunteers. Ric Butler covers Tennessee sports for Rocky Top Insider. …

The Lakers made some history on Thursday, selecting Bronny James with the 55th pick in the Draft. It was a move that surprised... well, nobody, but does set up the Lakers to have the first father/son combo on the floor in NBA history. That's pretty cool! And a testament to LeBron's longevity in the league. But was it a good pick? In some ways, it's…

Last season, the Lakers had opportunities to draft players in the first round that were projected to help an NBA team right away. They had a chance to draft the "lottery guy who falls." They did neither. This year, the same opportunity presented itself, this time with the same player. As names went off the board, University of Tennessee wing Dalton…

The Lakers have already had a busy week, and it gets busier today, with Day 1 of the NBA Draft (that's a new thing). With all the talk of player development coming with the hiring of JJ Redick, as well as Rob Pelinka talking Monday about the challenges of making trades in the new CBA, it does seem like a strong possibility that the Lakers use the p…

The Lakers introduced JJ Redick to the media Monday. It didn't take long to get a feel for why Redick did so well through the interview process. He came off as someone with a definitive world view about basketball, and how it should be played. He had thoughts about his star players, and how he wants to use them. Redick was candid about his lack of …

The Lakers are introducing JJ Redick Monday as their next head coach, throwing a big ol' press conference to celebrate. Given that this is the first time they've spoken to the media since firing Darvin Ham right after the end of the playoffs, there will be much to discuss, not just about Redick himself, but everything that's led up to this moment. …

At long (like, loooooong) last, the Lakers have finally hired a coach. As widely anticipated, save one brief/public with UConn's Dan Hurley, the new guy in town is JJ Redick, whose communication skills, charisma, and basketball intellect are being bet on to offset having never coached anybody older than children. Is this a brilliant roll of the dic…

Lakers have made if officially official! JJ Redick is now your head coach of the Los Angeles Lakers! Much to be discussed in this episode so not much else of a description needs to be written, these are JC De Leon's immediate thoughts to the news upon hearing the news once it broke.

In the end, we finished where we started. JJ Redick—who began the process as the frontrunner, then went back to the front of the line after a brief flirtation with UConn head coach Dan Hurley—agreed to a four-year deal with the Lakers, worth about $8 million a year. So the Lakers got their man to succeed Darvin Ham. There's plenty of intrigue built…

Well, the script writers are at it again. Have we entered PLOT TWIST character? Monty Williams -- the same Monty Williams who was a prime choice for the Lakers a few years back and turned them down before they eventually landed on Frank Vogel -- was let go by Detroit with approximately 11 years and $9 billion left on his contract. So with the proce…

With the Finals in our collective rear view mirror (maybe not THAT far in our collective rear view mirror but nonetheless in it), ESPN has it's first edition of the 2024-25, admittedly way too early Power Rankings. Of course, the idea of ranking teams now, when so much is going to change and we are almost literally as far as we'll be bfeore anyone …

Yeah, everyone saw. In a series that was about as lacking in drama as a series could have, the Boston Celtics polished off the Dallas Mavericks Monday night to win an 18th NBA title, putting them back ahead of the Lakers for most in league history. And it doesn't take a crackerjack NBA analyst to note that they are in much better position to keep a…

JJ Redick was in LA this weekend, meeting with the team for his "most formal" round of interviews yet, via the LA Times. How quickly the Lakers move from here is a matter of debate. On the one hand, it certainly seems like the Lakers are facing a time crunch, with the draft rolling around at the end of the month, and free agency starting soon after…
  continue reading
 
The Dan Hurley Saga is over, sort of. As the postmortem continues on this relatively short but extremely interesting chapter in Lakers history (people still talk about Coach K turning them down 20 years later), there's still the matter of finding the coach for next season. To that end, you'll never guess who is, reportedly, back in front... Or mayb…

No NBA franchise, save perhaps Celtics the has more names who could legitimately be placed on its proverbial Mt. Rushmore than the Los Angeles Lakers. And even with all that competition, it would be impossible to put together an honorary like that without including Jerry West. A man who would make a compelling case to be on the league's Mt. Rushmor…

A couple days after Dan Hurley turned down the Lakers, the news around the NBA is still very much centered around the fact that Dan Hurley turned down the Lakers. Everything about the story, from how it has been covered and who broke what (i.e. Woj vs. Shams) to big questions about the Lakers brand, the competence of the Lakers front office and whe…

It was going to be a big Monday one way or another, but it went the wrong way for the Lakers. UConn head coach Dan Hurley will remain UConn head coach. He turned down an offer from the Lakers reported to be worth $70 million over six years. That's a lot of money, no doubt, but was it the right offer for this situation? Or even close? A very solid a…
  continue reading
 
Well, the news indeed arrived on Monday, and it wasn't what Lakers fans wanted to hear. Dan Hurley said thanks, but no thanks, to the Lakers, and will remain in Storrs, Connecticut to coach the Huskies. So the Lakers are still without a head coach, except now they have a high profile failure in the headlines. Why did they fail? It's possible that H…
  continue reading
 
The Lakers, ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski reports, made a "compelling case" to be the team's next head coach. Hurley was "extremely impressed" by the "compelling vision" offered by management on how to bring his program and ethos to Los Angeles and build a new era of success with the team. So will it work? We'll find out today, he says. It's hard to re…
  continue reading
 
The Lakers shocked the NBA world Thursday when the news broke (via Woj) that the Lakers are pursing UConn head coach Dan Hurley for their open head coaching gig. They are, reportedly, ready and willing to pay through the wazoo and commit to a lengthy deal in order to entice Hurley to leave Storrs. They're intrigued by Hurley's ability to develop yo…
  continue reading
 
As far as Woj Bombs go, this one was atomic. The Lakers, he says, are targeting and have entered negotiations with UConn head coach Dan Hurley to become their next head coach. This was extremely shocking news, as everyone -- like truly everyone who does reporting on this -- didn't see it coming. All of the attention has been on ESPN's JJ Redick, an…
  continue reading
 
The Lakers are, presumably, waiting for the NBA Finals to end so the can go ahead and hire JJ Redick to be their next head coach. Redick, for his part, isn't commenting. Or says he won't until the Finals are over. Probably at his introductory press conference. So until anyone says otherwise, let's assume Redick is the guy. How exactly did we get he…
  continue reading
 
For weeks, the Lakers have been attached to ESPN's JJ Redick as the leading name in their search for a head coach. Nothing has come along to change the idea that the gig is Redick's to lose. Tuesday, that sense only grew stronger, as Shams Charania of The Athletic reported that the Lakers are "zeroing in on (Redick) as the front-runner to be the fr…
  continue reading
 
Lots of response to Monday's show, looking at the relative value of potentially available players like Chicago's Zach LaVine and Washington's Kyle Kuzma, and why raw talent isn't necessarily the best metric to use when deciding who to do after. There's a tricky calculus in play that also involves cost in salary and cost in talent, what's left over …
  continue reading
 
The Lakers are still feeling out that space between stars and depth. Depth and stars. But what about those guys who are big names but may not qualify as either? Like Chicago's Zach LaVine, who seems perpetually on the trade block now, and therefore always rumored to be a future Laker. The Bulls, reportedly, are getting LaVine back out on the market…
  continue reading
 
Earlier this week, we noted an interview done by our friend Trevor Lane of Lakers Nation fame with Taurean Prince in which Prince stated his hope that he's back with the team next season. He also talked about the team more broadly, reflecting on whether he believes they should try to run it back with continuity, or if the team needs big changes to …

Not that he was every really in play, but Ty Lue, the Lakers aspirational coach (who, of course, could/should have been hired a few years ago) finally came to an agreement with the Clippers that will keep him on their sidelines for the next five years. Maybe Rob Pelinka was secretly holding out hope that somehow Lue would become available. Well, no…

Things are taking a turn. Tuesday, Shams Charania of The Athletic reported that Bronny James has been invited by 10 or so teams to work out with them ahead of the NBA Draft. Nothing unusual there. Except James is only going to accept two of them. Phoenix, and the Lakers. Now that, if it holds is unusual. Bronny is not exactly in a position, based o…
  continue reading
 
The Lakers are reportedly ready to open up their coaching search a little wider this week, with interviews with the big batch of well-regarded assistants (David Adelman, Micah Nori, Chris Quinn) expected to happen relatively soon. In the meantime, it's a perfect time to get into the Locked On Lakers mailbag (found in the community section of the Yo…
  continue reading
 
The Lakers head coaching search is going slowly, in part because the apparent frontrunner still has a gig calling games for ESPN. Reports from Shams Charania (and others) continue to put JJ Redick at the front of the line for the Lakers, even while more interviews are set to happen this week, followed by another round of more intensive interviews a…
  continue reading
 
There hasn't been a ton of news out of El Segundo as the Lakers slow play their coaching search and nobody can really do much about next season from a personnel standpoint, because the playoffs are still happening. But on Thursday, the calm was shaken just a little bit. BJ Bickerstaff was let go by the Cleveland Cavaliers. Now in theory, that could…
