The NBA’s most famous brothers are on vacation with their ladies. Pau and Marc Gasol were spotted yachting in Spain this week looking like they don’t have a care in the world…or much muscle. I’m surprised to see such highly paid athletes in such below average to mediocre shape.-TO

Kelly, 6-feet-11 and 230 pounds, averaged 12.9 points and 5.3 rebounds as a senior in 2012-13. He could give the Lakers a much-needed dimension as a perimeter shooter with the size to stretch defenses.
However, Kelly was limited to only 23 games last season because of a broken...

The Los Angeles Lakers will hire Mark Madsen as an assistant coach.
Madsen was hired as the head coach of the Los Angeles D-Fenders in mid-May, but has received the promotion to be an NBA assistant.
Dan D'Antoni is the only holdover from Mike D'Antoni's staff last season.
Gilbert Arenas is currently signed the Shanghai Sharks of the Chinese Basketball Association, his NBA having petered out after stints with the Orlando Magic and Memphis Grizzlies. It’s probably worth pointing out that China invented fireworks (along with gunpowder) all the way back in the 7th century, so perhaps Arenas was just cognizant of a different set of laws.
