Lakers News: Luol Deng says he wants to play power forward more next season

Lakers News: Luol Deng says he wants to play power forward more next season

Los Angeles’ highest-paid player wants to maximize his talents by moving up a position. When the Los Angeles Lakers handed Luol Deng a four-year contract reportedly worth $72 million last summer, it was one of the most scrutinized deals of the off-season. Would it be an overpay? Would Deng block minutes from Brandon Ingram? Would he be able to play his most effective position from the season before (power forward) in the Lakers’ crowded frontcourt? The answers to those questions were: “Yes,” “kind of” and “not really.” Deng has already said he wants to “shut up” his...

Lakers News: D’Angelo Russell plans to ‘reach out’ to Kobe Bryant this summer

Lakers News: D’Angelo Russell plans to ‘reach out’ to Kobe Bryant this summer

Will the two train together? One of the major pieces of “news” to come out of the Los Angeles Lakers’ exit interviews was that Brandon Ingram was planning to work out with Kobe Bryant this summer. Ingram wants to make it happen, and so do Rob Pelinka and Luke Walton. Part of the reason the Lakers want Ingram to work out with Bryant is probably because he never played with the legendary shooting guard, something D’Angelo Russell did do during his rookie season. As for whether or not Russell plans to join Ingram in setting something up with Bryant, he told Drew Ruiz of Slam Magazine...

Brandon Ingram’s growth was a major talking point at Lakers exit interviews

Brandon Ingram’s growth was a major talking point at Lakers exit interviews

The rookie earned his respect, which he received in droves. When 15 interviews are conducted in a single sitting, it’s pretty easy to notice trends. During the Los Angeles Lakers’ exit interviews, the respect for Brandon Ingram was pretty hard — if not outright impossible — to avoid. He earned it, and his season speaks for itself. I’ll get to the quotes in a second, but context is important. Before the All-Star Break, Ingram was averaging a pretty measly eight points per game on just 36% shooting. He was shooting around eight times per game and getting to the line for 2.6...

Luke Walton and Rob Pelinka explained why the Lakers want Brandon Ingram to work with Kobe Bryant

Los Angeles wants one of their former stars to work with one of their most promising young players. Los Angeles Lakers Head Coach Luke Walton managed to have a 10-year playing career, but it wasn’t because he was a superstar player. Walton was obviously more talented than the general population, but for an NBA player, he didn’t have the potential that allows a player to get to the next level. He and the Lakers front office believe rookie forward Brandon Ingram does have that type of talent, and it’s why they want him to work with Kobe Bryant this summer. Walton said a reason they...

Luke Walton shares his favorite memories from the Lakers’ season

Los Angeles’ head coach keeps things positive. When a team finishes with a 26-56 record, obviously a lot went wrong. The Los Angeles Lakers are no exception, finishing up a season filled with often unwatchable basketball with a 109-94 loss to the Golden State Warriors Wednesday. Still, the season wasn’t all bad for Los Angeles. The Lakers improved upon their previous campaign by nine wins, and saw tons of growth from rookie forward Brandon Ingram down the stretch as well as flashes from their young core of D’Angelo Russell, Julius Randle, Larry Nance, Jr., Jordan Clarkson and Ivica...

Lakers News: Brandon Ingram really wants to be a leader

Saying the right things is never a bad place to start. Brandon Ingram entered the year with expectations that were probably unrealistic given his age and, well, honestly, people stink at setting realistic expectations. As the offseason is upon him, he doesn’t seem all that bothered by the expectations from a year ago. He’s looking forward, and wants to improve on and off the court. Ingram finished his rookie campaign having averaged just over nine points, four rebounds and a couple assists per game. Those numbers are hampered a bit by the first half of the year, but overall, most...

Kevin Durant led the way with 29 points, dominating the Lakers early. The Warriors dropped 43 points on the Lakers in the first quarter and never looked back.
