After losing Kobe Bryant again, the Lakers had an impressive win over the Minnesota Timberwolves on Friday. Unfortunately, they lost their other star in Pau Gasol prior to the second game of a back-to-back against the Golden State Warriors, and they were blown out as a result. Although the Lakers are not looking to bring in more money to keep cap space open when big names hit free agency, trade rumors are still swirling around with names such as Gasol and Houston Rockets’ point guard Jeremy Lin involved.
Lacking a point guard, the Lakers have been struggling to move the ball around, and players such as Wesley Johnson have expressed and shown frustration that it has been difficult to get the ball where they want it. The Lakers acted fast to bring in help after Bryant went down by picking up Kendall Marshall, a former Phoenix Sun’s lottery pick, who saw his first minutes with the team on Saturday. With the injuries they are dealing with, it is no secret that the Lakers’ hopes to reach the playoffs this season are fading away, but still they have remained an exciting team to watch.
