Darius Morris has agreed to a partially guaranteed contract with the Philadelphia 76ers, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports:
Los Angeles Lakers free-agent guard Darius Morris is finalizing an agreement with the Philadelphia 76ers, league sources told Yahoo Sports.
Morris, 22, will sign a partially guaranteed contract for the 2013-14 season, but is expected to make the 76ers’ roster and play meaningful backcourt minutes this season.
Despite showing promise last season and becoming one of Mike D’Antoni‘s favorite players, the Los Angeles Lakers never seemed all that interested in retaining the services of their second-year guard. The Lakers didn’t extend a qualifying offer to Morris when the off-season got underway – they also declined to do so with Andrew Goudelock and Devin Ebanks; Goudelock is now in Russia and Ebanks is currently working out for various NBA teams – though Mitch Kupchak said there was a place for Morris on the Lakers’ Summer League team, albeit with n...

Last week, Xavier Henry quickly became a member of the Los Angeles Lakers - one minute the purple and gold reportedly had interest in him and the next he signed on the dotted line.
Now he’s officially a member of the Lakeshow, Henry told Lakers.com that he’s looking forward to learning from Kobe Bryant on a day-to-day basis. The guard also hopes to draw a lot of fouls and get...
Now that the great Dr. Jerry Buss has sadly departed, someone else must make the final call within the Los Angeles Lakers organization. While many observers would assume that Jim Buss would have the final word, Jim himself claims that his sister Jeanie Buss is the one with the “ultimate say”.
Here’s what Jim said today in a radio interview with AM570:
I would say Jeanie [Buss...
Pau Gasol has been bearded for quite a while now. Sure, when he arrived in Los Angeles he tamed it a little, but we haven’t seen a clean shaven Pau for quite some time. Until today, that is.
Pau lost a bet with his brother Marc, and he paid it off by shaving off his beard. This wasn’t just some silly wager between two brothers, though: it was all in aid of the Gasol Foundation...
Despite Jim Buss being involved in the decision making process for the Los Angeles Lakers for over a decade now, many fans are still uneasy about Dr. Jerry Buss‘ son running their beloved franchise.
However, Jim isn’t the only one in charge; all of Dr. Buss’ children own a stake of the team, and Jim himself said yesterday that Jeanie Buss has the “ultimate say” when it...

The Lakers are perennially among the NBA’s leaders in television appearances, but this is a little bit different. Legendary coach Phil Jackson and his fiancee, Lakers vice president Jeanie Buss, will reportedly serve as executive producers for a new cable television series about a family that owns a professional basketball team, sound familiar?
Dr. Jerry Buss will be honored at halftime of USC’s football game versus Boston College on Saturday, according to Kevin Ding and Janis Carr of the O.C. Register.
Buss, a USC graduate, will be remembered as the marching band performs some of his favorite songs; the Laker Girls will also be present, according to Carr:

The Dallas Mavericks have signed Devin Ebanks, according to the team’s official website:
The Dallas Mavericks announced today they have signed forward Devin Ebanks. Per team policy, terms of the deal were not disclosed.
Ebanks worked out for the Orlando Magic yesterday and headed to Dallas straight after; it seems the Mavs liked him enough to sign him up there and then. It is unclear...
ESPN.com is reporting that the Mavs have signed former Lakers forward Devin Ebanks to a non guaranteed contract.
The 6-foot-9 Ebanks played three seasons for the Los Angeles Lakers after being selected with the 43rd overall pick in the 2010 draft.
He has career averages of 3.6 points and 1.9 rebounds in 63 games.
It’s not hard to get a mental image of someone in the Lakers’ marketing department, mallet in hand, relentlessly trying to hammer a square peg into a round hole.
That’s essentially what the Lakers did Wednesday when they tweeted a photo of Kobe Bryant, circa 2001, along with the words “#NEVERFORGET” in a ham-handed attempt at a 9/11 remembrance. The reaction from fans and...
Last Thursday, two wives of the biggest names in the NBA game got dinner together in West LA as Vanessa Bryant (Kobe Bryant’s wife) and La La Anthony (Carmelo Anthony’s wife) grabbed some grub at trendy Madeo restaurant.
Below is an Instagram image of the two smiling together that Kobe’s wife posted to her account:

Pau Gasol is a man of his word. The Lakers forward shaved his beard for the first time in nine years Thursday after losing a bet, regarding The Gasol Foundation, to brother, Marc Gasol.
Apparently this "former NBA player/coach/whatever turned executive producer for whatever reason thing" is becoming a trend. First, LeBron James decided to help develop a pseudo-reality show with Starz, and now we have Phil Jackson teaming up with Showtime.
Showtime is developing a one-hour scripted drama set behind the scenes of a pro basketball...
The Dallas Mavericks have signed Devin Ebanks.
Ebanks was a second round pick in 2010 out of West Virginia by the Los Angeles Lakers.
