Lakers trade Marc Gasol to Memphis, ending ‘chaotic’ 1-year run

Marc Gasol’s NBA tenure began when the Lakers traded his draft rights to Memphis 13 years ago. The stage is set for his career to end with the same move. The Lakers traded the 36-year-old center to Memphis on Friday, ending a tumultuous one-year campaign that saw Gasol oscillate between starter and benchwarmer and didn’t end the way either party would have liked. Gasol averaged just 5 points and 4.1 rebounds last season – at times showing signs of his All-Star past, but at others winding up disg...

From Nets to Lakers, DeAndre Jordan ready to chase a championship again

The man best-positioned to turn up the heat in the NBA’s Cold War decided to hold off escalation – at least on his first day of work. After flipping coasts and NBA star-powered rosters, DeAndre Jordan asked how he’s getting along with Kevin Durant, James Harden, Kyrie Irving and his old teammates in Brooklyn these days. “We’re definitely not friends anymore,” he dead-panned, before laughing off the playful jab. Jordan, 33, isn’t looking to start drama as a new member of the Lakers, who officiall...

Report: DeAndre Jordan intends to join Lakers after buyout

After hoarding veterans in their 30s this offseason, the Lakers aren’t done yet. The team is widely expected to sign DeAndre Jordan, a three-time All-NBA center who made his name with the rival Clippers as a rim-running, rebound-grabbing defensive presence. After Jordan was traded from the Brooklyn Nets to the Detroit Pistons in a cost-cutting move on Friday, ESPN was first to report that the Lakers are the favorites to pick him up once he clears waivers on a buyout of the remaining two years an...

Lakers headline NBA schedule with 42 games on national networks

It remains to be seen how far the Lakers can go in the postseason with their new power trio of LeBron James, Russell Westbrook and Anthony Davis. One thing is already clear: They’re a headlining act. The NBA has pushed the Lakers front and center in the upcoming 2021-22 regular season, the first 82-game schedule the league is hoping to complete since the 2018-19 season. After playing 71 games in the 2019-20 bubble season and 72 games in the pandemic-shortened 2020-21 season, the Lakers will be p...

In short order, the Lakers will see how their new Big Three stacks up against the NBA’s competing star trios.

Whicker: In Lakers’ leisure world, Westbrook is a raging fountain of youth

The Lakers have an old team, which is a great thing. It provides writers with provisions to survive the 82-game trek. For instance: • The Lakers all learned the Euro Step when they were growing up in the Austro-Hungarian Empire. • They should give an entire playoff share to the guy who charges up their Life Alerts. • And they’ve already said they’re not lifting a finger until Jeanie Buss shells out for that new shuffleboard court at their El Segundo practice facility. It will also be a great thi...

Lakers face tough decisions at start of free agency

The headliner is in: While free agency will make the NBA move and shake, for the Lakers, there’s no bigger deal ahead than the one they swung just before Thursday’s draft. Russell Westbrook arriving via trade from the Washington Wizards will be the move that defines their season. And yet it might just be the moves in the margins that truly push the Lakers over the top, extracting the maximum amount of value for the least amount of money when the free agency frenzy begins Monday at 3 p.m. PT.

Westbrook is the quickest fix in the NBA, but the Lakers still depend on Davis’ health

The Lakers just became clear favorites to win the 2016 NBA championship. Russell Westbrook’s birth certificate says he will turn 33 on Nov. 12. LeBron James’s papers say he will turn 37 on Dec. 25. Anthony Davis’ MRIs indicate his legs might be older than either. Officially, he is only 28. But the trade for Westbrook is red meat to the inhabitants of Lakerland, who strongly believe that every notable player in the NBA is holding one of those buzzers they give out in family restaurants, on busy n...

NBA Draft: USC’s Evan Mobley selected third by Cleveland Cavaliers

His name just called by NBA commissioner Adam Silver, Evan Mobley — usually so stoic — cracked a wide smile. The 7-footer stood up, and before he could go far, his father Eric began buttoning Mobley’s powder blue jacket. After getting the parental approval, and few hugs around the table, it was time for Mobley to step up to the stage at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn and begin his NBA journey. Mobley, who in his one year at USC lifted the Trojans to rare heights, was selected by the Cleveland C...

Analysis: Lakers face tricky choice of priorities at No. 22 in NBA Draft

For many franchises, the NBA Draft is a wellspring of hope, the possibility that lean years might turn around and they might uncover the star who changes their fortunes. That’s no longer true for the Lakers, who already have the stars they need to win and have indeed already won with them. So what does a shot at the future represent to a team that keeps pushing its chips to the present? Thursday will bring an answer to how the Lakers’ front office values a draft pick: as a young player who can h...

Lakers part ways with assistant Lionel Hollins, promote Mike Penberthy

After two years of coaching continuity, the Lakers are continuing to shuffle their bench under Frank Vogel. Assistant coach Lionel Hollins, a two-time former head coach who helped the team primarily on the defensive end, is out after two seasons, he confirmed to Southern California News Group. The opening on the front of the bench will allow Mike Penberthy, an assistant who has also been on staff for the past two years, to move up to one of the ranking coaches on staff. The Athletic was the firs...

Lakers make Talen Horton-Tucker a restricted free agent

The Lakers will have the inside track to retain Talen Horton-Tucker, a 20-year-old bright spot at shooting guard, when free agency opens next month. As expected, the team extended a qualifying offer to the 6-foot-4 Horton-Tucker, making him a restricted free agent. The Lakers will have the right to match any offer Horton-Tucker receives this summer, if they don’t come to an extension agreement with the Chicago native first. Horton-Tucker averaged 9 points and 2.8 assists in his second season, sh...

Lakers scour for win-now prospects in 2021 NBA draft

On March 14, Ayo Dosunmu celebrated a Big Ten title with a tribute to his favorite player: In the shower of the locker room, he posed with one arm wrapped around the conference title trophy, and another cradling his face in a somewhat vacant expression. Laker fans will find the resemblance unmistakable: a direct homage to Kobe Bryant moments after winning the 2001 Larry O’Brien trophy. “Mamba is someone I always looked up to when I was younger,” Dosunmu said. “It’s just really unreal just being ...

Editor’s note: This is the Thursday July 30 edition of the Purple & Bold Lakers newsletter from reporter Kyle Goon. To receive the newsletter in your inbox, sign up here. There’s a natural assumption in the NBA, backed by decades of evidence: Where there is a disgruntled star, the Lakers remain positioned in the wings, ready to swoop in and snatch him. From Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, to Shaquille O’Neal now to Anthony Davis, it’s understandable that fans could stray toward overconfidence when it com...
