Lakers are interested in trading for Rajon Rondo

This would be a huge move for the Lakers because Steve Nash is getting older and he has not helped the Lakers do anything in the past couple of years.  Kobe Bryant needs a solid young point guard and Rondo is the perfect guy for the Lakers. In this deal the players that the Lakers could be giving up are Kendall Marshall and Robert Sacre.  Rondo clearly needs players around him...

Projecting the Los Angeles Lakers Starting Five for the 2014-2015 Season

The Los Angeles Lakers have a very thin roster currently, with only Kendall Marshall (team option), Steve Nash, Kobe Bryant, Robert Sacre, and recent first round pick, Julius Randle under contract right now.

L.A. Lakers draft preview: how the rebuild begins

The L.A. Lakers have a whopping three players under contract for next season: Kobe Bryant, Steve Nash and Robert Sacre. That’s it. So this is a proverbial transition year or “rebuilding year.” Obviously, things aren’t going to turn around any time soon, so don’t be too shocked if they end up in the lottery again in 2015. I know it sounds weird to say that: L.A. Lakers in...

Lakers Draft Needs

Overview:The Los Angeles Lakers just had a rough season, to sum it up. They could have tanked just like the Sixers or Bucks and aimed for the Wiggins or Parker pick, but you could tell that they were giving it their all in every game. Which ended up with them likely getting the 6th pick in the draft, because that's how low their talent level was. They have three players under...

Robert Sacre a rare bright spot

Amid a Lakers season filled with flimsy defense, there remains one consistent presence that hustles on every possession. Amid a team filled with players who occasionally try to pad their statistics, the Lakers have one player who does not worry about such a thing. Amid a roster filled with potential free agents who have uncertain futures, there’s one player that has no such concern...

Laker Rumors: Lakers have three under contract, so what's remaining?

The Los Angeles Lakers only have three players who will be under contract at the start of next season, Kobe Bryant, Steve Nash and Robert Sacre. Ok, so counting Nash and his bad back, more like two and a half men. As poorly as this team is playing this season, that is probably a good thing to shed some of these current players and maybe start over. This is uncommon territory for...

VIDEO: Robert Sacre fouls out versus Cavs, has to stay in game due to Lakers’ injury woes

Last night’s game was kinda weird. In the NBA, you don’t expect a team to run out of players. However, seeing as the Lakers are the most banged up team in the league right now, they found themselves in a strange position on Wednesday night while playing the Cleveland Cavaliers. Starting the game with just eight guys due to injuries the previous night to Jodie Meeks (ankle) and...
