Something's up. We might have a trade lined up in which we take more players than we give up.

I see McKinnie getting waived at some point as well.

Nvm. I saw Boogie has been officially released.
I don't think it's a coincidence. We're probably giving him Cook's spot and preserve another spot for the buyout market down the road.

Seems likely. I still feel like rob is going to pull off one more trade this season. Could be minor but I feel like something will happen

It was bound to happen especially with the AD injury. Too bad for Cook though....no guaranteed money for him. Cook is actually decent as shown on the warriors when given a little time, but makes no sense the Lakers signed him when they know he won't see the floor.

For all the stats that say the Laker's defense is better this year, it's obvious they lack size and that teams are targeting that with lots of easy attempts to the basket.

Not sure about the cousins rumors though. I don't like it because he's slow and shoots a bunch of 3s and basically have Gasol for that. I wonder if the Lakers made him an offer in the offseason though. Even if the Lakers made an offer, I can see why the Rockets were more enticing as he was expecting to start there before Woods signed or started putting up numbers

Just read they're targeting whiteside. I'll take slow ass cousins over whiteside. Whiteside fills a need, but he's either just plain lazy or has a really low bball IQ. When you watch him sometimes, it's like what the hell are you doing.

Hope not, McKinnie is nice. I'd rather see him get run over THT/Kuzma sometimes.

He has two more years after this season.
Hopefully that will be moot, if he re-signs with Los Angeles again when the time comes.
