Lakers News: Team Unlikely To Add Player During Road Trip

Share on FacebookTweet about this on Twitter

With the Los Angeles Lakers set to face the Minnesota Timberwolves tomorrow in the first of a three-game road trip, the team has a lot of decisions to make as the February trade deadline approaches. While the team is in discussions with the Phoenix Suns about a possible Pau Gasol trade, Los Angeles has decided not to retain Manny Harris once his 10-day contract expires.

With Steve Nash and Steve Blake expected to return tomorrow and Jordan Farmar on his way back as well, the decision to not bring back Harris makes sense as the backcourt has quickly become crowded. While the frontcourt may need an extra player with Gasol out for a week, ESPN’s Ramona Shelburne says the Lakers won’t be adding another player during the road trip:

With the Lakers depleted by injuries for the second straight season, they are currently one game from the worst record in the Western Conference at 16-31. Although the Lakers started the season at 10-9 without Kobe Bryant, having most of their backcourt players out for an extended period of time has destroyed any chances of making the playoffs.

While the Lakers will look to make changes before the trade deadline to prepare for the future, having their three point guards back should help them be competitive in games.

    Yeah save it for a rainy day.But maybe add a player via trade by deadline.

    Hype but plausible..

    “According to Arizona Sports Radio’s (John Gambadoro) the Suns may be planning to acquire Gasol in order to trade Pau at a later date to the imberwolves in exchange for Kevin Love…”

    Possible if they’re willing to give up their first rounders in order to attain Love. The Nuns are basically are trying to gain/lure/attract a star to fill the seats aside of bettering their odds to contend down the road.

      Seriously?

          I simply meant that it was wishful thinking on that writer’s part and whoever he got the ‘information’ from, that’s all.
          Nothing against you personally…sorry if it came out that way.

            None taken though sounded more as laughing my ass on the floor while cutting one loose.

            Well said and FWIW, “my posterior has separated from my body” translates as ‘ass off’, just so there’s no further confusion. ;)

    Bleacher Report Interview, Dante Exum:

    “Definitely L.A. is one option,” Exum told Jared Zwerling. “I’ve been to
    L.A. many times and I love the city, and it’s a great city. If I get
    the opportunity to go to L.A. and play for the Lakers, I know I’ll have
    love for the city. And their fans are loyal and they have the rivalry
    with the Clippers. But just to be in an environment where you have a
    great player like Kobe, where you have a mentor in a way as a rookie, I
    think that would be the best option.” :O

    “I just want to know his work ethic,” Exum said of Bryant. “What he’s
    done to be where he is at the moment, because he’s definitely in the
    talk of one of the greatest of all time. So I want to just pick his
    brain, what he’s done, how he’s adapted over the years and still been
    able to average over 20 points in the league.” :>

    “I don’t want to go to a team, somewhere like the (Los Angeles)
    Clippers, that have Chris Paul and I’ll be kind of stuck behind him,”
    Exum told other reporters “I really want to go to a team that’s going to want me, need me, and hopefully I can get minutes in the first season.” :)

    Playing in Australia…

      Would love to see Exum land with the Lakers…Kobe II anyone?
