The Lakers waived Shawne Williams on Tuesday before his contract became fully-guaranteed which brings down the roster size to 14 players. Could Mitch Kupchak and co. look to fill that roster spot relatively quickly?
My guess is no, though it probably wouldnâ€™t hurt to sign a player to a 10-day contract and give them a trial run with the team.
One player who the Lakers may have their...

Before tonightâ€™s game with the Knicks, coach Brad Stevens said it would be important for Boston to get off to a fast start. Well the Celtics did just that, burying all four of their three-pointers in the first 6 minutes to open-up an 18-4 lead. Ball movement was crisp, guys were moving and things looked good.
Knicks got themselves back into the ballgame in the 2nd, mostly due to...
