Another rumor deals with the Lakers coaching search. Although his name has been tied to the open head coaching position, Derek Fisher has an outside shot of becoming the one to replace Mike D’Antoni. If he were to become a coach, he would do so without any form of experience.

Around the NBA, Chris Bosh revealed his intention to re-sign with the Miami Heat, even if it means taking less money to do so. Elsewhere, the Cleveland Cavaliers haven’t had much interest in bringing Luol Deng back. With Deng potentially available for other teams, the Lakers might consider him an option this upcoming summer.

    We need to land LeBron and Westbook over the next few years. Should bring us back to the top once again.

  • Silo Silo

    Can someone tell me why the hell lakers can’t use some of that time warner money and pay the luxury tax already and make us a contender ? Also, they could sign ANY superstar to 4 year deal where they get paid 1/4 in the first two years and the remaining balance in the last two

    • JohnSmith00

      The Lakers WILL have the cap space to give a superstar max contract, but that’s pretty much it. Though that really doesn’t matter because the likelihood of the top two free agents and superstars (Carmelo and Lebron) coming to L.A at this point is extremely slim. Really the biggest issue here is Kobe’s and Nash’s contracts eating away at the Lakers cap this summer.

      It completely diminishes the team’s ability to do much of anything. Other than having to go with plan b which is trying to create a contender with pseudo stars for example: Deng, Lowry, Bledsoe, Monroe, Randolph, etc. Which also presents the Lakers with another dilemma; rebuild this summer or rinse & repeat and hold out for next summer which has better prospect than this one.

      • Jes

        Rinse and repeat. Trying to reload quickly this summer is like putting a band-aid over a shotgun blast.

    • Warren

      The money they get annually from TW does NOT go into their pockets 100%. The Lakers turn around and send nearly HALF of that to the NBA as part of the new revenue sharing agreement of the new CBA. Fans really need to read up on the CBA and the business behind NBA team operations, but I guess it’s easier to just blindly go “BAAAAHHH! Spend some money, you got a Gillion dollar TV deal and charge a lot for tickets blah blah blah”

      • Warren

        Not to mention that the luxury tax escalates exponentially after every year you are over the cap. It’s no longer dollar for dollar like it was 5 or so years ago. I

  • Jim213

    Per Bill Oram:

    “The Spanish radio voice of the Lakers has filed a lawsuit against the team and its broadcast partner, TWC, that alleges 17 years of discrimination based on race and age. The Lakers refuted the claims of Fernando Gonzalez, a Mexican-American who has worked for the team since 1996.”

    Don’t the Lakers have an HR Department?

  • eric

    the lakers need to sign a coach before free agency…they need to trade the 7th pick…they need to resign gasol/hill/marshall and meeks at least…they need to trade sacres and nash’s expiring contract…they need to sign a starting power forward/a starting small forward/a starting point guard/a back up center/a back up small forward/a bench forward and a bench guard and they will be just fine with what I just mentioned as long as they sign a good laker coach/resign those free agents of theirs I mentioned/did those trades and signed the other free agents I mentioned that can defend besides score….because defense does win championships and you do need a bench and a team with role players to your stars….
    thusly the lakers can go cheap this year and still put together a contender….if they want youth…find good ones and offer them the long term contracts but lessen the salary then on them….they can even add vets but do the same with them as well…but don’t give long contracts just a few years but still make it cheap…the odds are most wouldn’t mind ending their careers as lakers while having a good shot at a few rings as well….some like gooden for example and gasol….or granger for that matter
