Lakers Nation Week in Review: February 15 – February 22
The trade deadline has finally passed us and Pau Gasol, Jordan Hill and Chris Kaman are still members of the Los Angeles Lakers. However, Steve Blake was surprisingly traded and the Lakers brought in two young players from the Golden State Warriors.
Even though the front office was fairly quite during this deadline, there is a good chance they will be very busy over the summer as they try to rebuild. Nevertheless, it was another busy week and here is a look back at the past seven days.
