In our video above, Kupchak says despite the possibility of the Lakers ending up with one of the worst records in the league and therefore having a decent chance to wind up as one of the teams with a top five pick (protected) in the NBA Draft, Lakers head coach Byron Scott and his team are focused on winning games.

Will the Lakers make any moves before the trade deadline? Is there a plan for 2015 NBA free agency? What do the Lakers have to do differently next year to ensure that Kobe isn’t carrying the load? It’s all in our video above.
