Earlier today, the NBA held their annual NBA pre-draft combine in Chicago and the Lakers were able to conduct interviews with several college prospects. The team met with players such as Marcus Smart, Rodney Hood, and would eventually speak with Dante Exum later in the day.
Also, general manager Mitch Kupchak spoke about different topics regarding Kobe Bryant. He mentions that Bryant will not have an input on the coaching search and also expects him to be ready for opening night based on his health status.
