    Is Iggy still in play for us?

      The Lakers still have a roster spot open, put it that way. No one really knows what is going on behind the scenes. The Grizz are supposedly trying to trade him, but perhaps they’re talking a buy out. If so, I guess he would be in play, but based on the Lakers moves, I think they know something we don’t and might go a different direction. Even though we have JaVale-Boogie-AD-Kuz to share time at the 4-5, with LeBron and Dudley playing some power forward, too, I think we’re one guy short. I would have rather see us pass on Rondo and leave two spots open for Iggy and a big (Ryan Anderson, Noah, Faried, Nene -- all unsigned right now). We’ll see.

        Can anyone we’ve signed be traded in exchange for Iggy?

          No. Dec. 15th is the earliest.

              Another thought, Seely. Nothing is etched in stone that the #46 pick, Talen Horton-Tucker, will make the team, although he probably will. It makes me wonder whether the Lakers can sign him to a two-way contract to open 2 roster spots. He’s likely to spend the entire season on the South Bay Lakers anyway, but I suppose he could turn down that offer and find a spot on another team. The Lakers are obviously in a win-now mode and might sacrifice THT for an Iggy and Korver, hypothetically.

      This Westbrook thing makes that contract valuable when it comes to matching Russ’ massive salary. I wonder if the Grizz are looking to get into a multi-team deal and end up with a draft pick? That would be Kawhi screwing us for a 2nd time since he’s pretty much the cause of OKC’s breakup…

        It’s also possible that Iggy’s salary will get included in a trade for Westbrook to a team like Miami. where they’re hard capped and have to waive him. The Clippers and Lakers both used their room exceptions so it would be a question of where he wants to go. He’s a Pelinka client so I think we’re still in the mix. Note that we didn’t use our room exception until the Clippers used their room exception. One thing for sure, Grizzlies aren’t going to pay him $17 million. He will get bought out and Lakers will keep that 15th spot open. They could also waive Troy Daniels who’s on a 1-year deal to open up another spot if they wanted to sign Korver and still keep a slot open for Iggy.

    And just like THAT, the pundits are writing off the Lakers in favor of Clippers to win the title. Bobby Marks and Woj predictably, and Vegas. No matter what, Los Angeles will always be Lakers town, regardless of who signs with the Clippers.

      Couldn’t agree more. Muscala is a joke, Zubac was developing into a solid back up and potential starter. Just don’t see anything resembling logic here.

      LD and KP are a fearsome tandem but everything hinges on the oft-injured Kristaps.

    • LakerTom (Publisher) 2:31 PM on January 31, 2019 Permalink | Log in to Reply

      After the initial shock wore off, it’s easy to see this was a get ahead of the curve move by the Knicks and could eliminate them bidders should Anthony Davis be available this summer. The relationship between Porzingis and the Knicks had deteriorated so much he was planning on accepting his qualifying offer so he could leave the following year so the Knicks decided to cut bait and clear enough cap space not only to sign one but two superstar free agents. They’ll still be well short of a true contender even with two superstars but it’s New York and they’re the Knicks so they’ll get somebody.

      What nobody will talk about also is how the deal went down so quickly. By the time everybody started tweeting about other teams getting involved, the deal was done and the tweets were MOA -- Moot on Arrival. The hypocrisy of the general managers complaining about players making deals among their friends is insulting. The Lakers might have been willing to use their $38 million in cap space to pair Porzingis with LeBron and Anthony Davis. LMAO about the complaints and criticism of LeBron, Paul, Magic, and the Lakers. Hypocrites.

      I think BI likes having Rondo back. He’s shooting 73% since Rondo’s return. If it wasn’t for fouls he would have 30 last game to. He did have 3 of our 20 turnovers but I’ll take it. Brandon won this round of 1 vs 2 in his draft class. Simmons couldnt stop him and neither could Butler.

      Thibs has has a well deserved reputation for running his players into the ground. T Wolves are up 25 with like 5-6 minutes left And Luke empties his bench. But Thibs leaves starters in? That’s just plain stupid. Towns had already taken one nasty fall. Anything can happen. There was no reason to take that kind of risk.

        Didn’t he get fired for pretty much the same reason in Chicago? I remember us discussing this a few years ago when he got hired for both GM and coach.

    Awww man!!! I just saw the compilation of all the LeBron shots from last night. I started watching the game but could not keep my eyes open in the 3rd quarter and missed great Lakers basketball. I had a medical procedure done yesterday and they gave me all the good stuff like morphine and percoset. Try as I might I could not keep my eyes open. Dang! What a game to miss!!!!!

      On YouTube you click on Share then on the menu look for Embed which should open a second window. If you’re using MS Edge it may cut off the Copy button so you would have to manually …LT just beat me to it! lol, good one LT

      Best way is to post a tweet to the story, Seely. You can do that two ways. First, is copy the headline for the story you want to link to and paste it into the search window in Twitter. The select a Tweet to the article that you like, open the tweet, copy the URL at the top of the page, and paste that into the body of the post.
      If you want, you can copy and paste a paragraph or two from the article to make a point and add a headline for the blog. The Tweet and your comments will then appear as a post in the blog.

      If you have a Twitter account, you can also just click the Bird symbol on the page where the story is and it will open a window to let you create a new Tweet to the story. You then post that Tweet to the blog. Let me know if you still have questions. Just test it out. If it doesn’t work, don’t worry. I’ll clean it up.
