Keith Parish of the Fastbreak Breakfast Podcast invited me on to discuss the future of the Lakers and I happily obliged. We talked some of the young players, why I remain high on Brandon Ingram’s future, whether I would trade the Lakers’ lottery pick (if they keep it), and even what type of role I envision for Luol Deng and Timo Mozgov next season.

This was a fun conversation and I appreciate Keith having me on. Click through to listen to the entire pod:

In our latest Laker Film Room Podcast, Pete and I discuss the sea-change of the post-trade deadline Lakers, what we hope some of the individual young players get out of the team’s final 20 games, and offer some assessments and concerns regarding some of the lasting habits we’re seeing from a couple of the specific youngsters.

I recently joined Aaron Fischman and Loren Lee Chen on their On the NBA Beat Podcast to talk Lakers. Topics covered include why I was on board not trading Brandon Ingram in a package for DeMarcus Cousins, what I see in D’Angelo Russell as a passer, the team’s defensive struggles, and why I think the player development coaches matter just as much as Magic Johnson and Rob Pelinka to turning things around.

I’ve never seen a player actually be in the All-Star game and then get traded within an hour of when that game ended, but that’s exactly what happened Sunday night when the Kings dealt DeMarcus Cousins to the Pelicans for a package which is being widely mocked around the league.

Stemming from that deal was the report the Lakers were discussing a deal for Cousins themselves before refusing to include Brandon Ingram. In the latest episode of the Laker Film Room Podcast, Pete and I discuss that Lakers’ decision, trade rumors¬†focusing on Lou Williams, and what types of deals the team should explore heading into Thursday’s trade deadline.
