Lol, don't know if this means they're really good or starters aren't doing that great yet.

Hahah yeah though I think it's more Lonzo making the other better. Kuzma, who was a beast in Summer League, also played with Lonzo- so that certainly helped.

Larry Nance doing a job thus far- looking for him to really elevate his game even more this season (and of course stay healthy).

Thanks for the updates kk!

You know if Nance continues to grow even more this year and Kuzma has a break out year for a rookie, that will give us more options when we try and move Deng this summer.

I understand the hype with Ball, he looks great offensively. It's defensively that worries me.

Defensively the whole team worries me.

KCP was signed to be defensive stopper, but he had a down year and was terrible on defense last year.

We talk about this every year lol, you can't sign 1 defensively sound player and expect to be decent on the defensive end. The team defense was a joke last year, from the personnel to the defensive sets. I'm interested to see how they combat that this season.

I don't recall him being called out for his notable defense last season either and imo he got lucky due to circumstances and his contract is hugely overpriced. I would rather have both Clarkson and Blue before him and perhaps Josh Hart as well whenever we get a chance to see him play. Given the defensive hype, I would have expected him to showcase this skill last night but as usual, the Lakers perimeter was Swiss cheese. Anyone can have a bad shooting night but there's never an excuse for playing weak defense unless injured. In other words, he's not about 'O' so for $18M, he better be lock down on defense. Fans are hard on Clarkson but he's nearly always quietly effective and always contributes, shoots well and makes his foul shots. He would be a starter on more than half of the NBA teams I figure.

For all the non playoff teams then? Lol Just busting your huevos. Anyways, yes he is vastly over paid, I just wish management would actually rebuild instead of hoarding cap space or throwing it away.

I just saw this and I too decided that it did not deserve a new thread as well. Does this make sense at all unless the Lakers are looking to make a trade soon? Wear would be the worst forward on the Lakers by a longshot.

Just saw this, maybe Ennis or someone else will not make final roster.

He can shoot the ball, and they need shooting, judging from their preseason games.

Why not just bring back the guy in the summer league that was lighting it up like Paxson if they need shooting or is he that guy that was in the summer league?

Perhaps a bit better than Nance and Randle but he won't get his shot off in the NBA which is why he played for the Knicks for 2/3rds of a season and then found himself back in the Grubb League.

He's a guard and besides, when the Lakers have a logjam at any position, they go and get more of them... I suppose another 2 would follow that pattern too?

I figure that they know they must make a trade involving at least 2 of their 4's.

He signed in Spanish league, Matt Thomas. Really thought he would get 2 way contract.

Yeah he is a pure shooter and like you I was hoping they would sign him along with Caruso.

I think KCP looks content to just cash in the $18k without breaking into a sweat this season. Lol. I have a feeling he’s already looking ahead. Hope I’m wrong.

In a contract year I think he'll go all out to get next big contract. But I still say 75% of this signing was about LBJ. But LBJ would be a fool to leave East now, it's basically a cake walk through East now.

That’s really quite devastating for Blue. The guy can’t get a break.
