Lakers Free Agency Rumors: Lakers had 45-minute meeting with Ian Clark, Luke Walton involved

The Lakers are getting closer to the final moves of their summer. The Los Angeles Lakers met with unrestricted free agent guard Ian Clark for approximately 45 minutes Thursday, reports Mark Medina of the Los Angeles Daily News. Magic Johnson and Rob Pelinka are closing in on finalizing the final roster before wrapping up their offseason. Their priority is finding additional backcourt depth, and Clark is an intriguing player to fill that role. It certainly doesn’t hurt that Clark has spent the past two seasons getting an up-close look at how the Golden State Warriors function. He’s...

Lakers News: Lonzo Ball ‘can’t wait’ to play with Kentavious Caldwell-Pope

The Lakers have a brand new backcourt next season, and Lonzo’s excited about the fit. The Los Angeles Lakers have been busy in Las Vegas handling summer league, but the front office took their operation back to Los Angeles to focus on rounding out their roster in free agency. Their one and only signing thus far, Kentavious Caldwell-Pope, finishes a complete renovation of their backcourt in a single summer. Head coach Luke Walton told Zach Lowe on The Lowe Post that he plans on starting Caldwell-Pope at the two-guard slot, and Lozno Ball had the runway cleared for him to land as the...

Lakers News: Luke Walton says Julius Randle studies Draymond Green film with him

Lakers News: Luke Walton says Julius Randle studies Draymond Green film with him

Coach Luke has big expectations for Randle. Comparing Julius Randle to Draymond Green was a thing well before Luke Walton became head coach of the Los Angeles Lakers, but the idea of Julius filling that role has only intensified since. That makes plenty of sense considering Walton watched Green become one of the best players in the NBA while he was with the Golden State Warriors. If he could only impart some of what helped Green turn the corner into becoming an elite, versatile big man, the Lakers would be better off for it. It sounds like the duo of Walton and Randle definitely have that...

Lakers News: Luke Walton says Brook Lopez’s 3-point shooting will open up offense, ‘blown away’ by his form

Lakers News: Luke Walton says Brook Lopez’s 3-point shooting will open up offense, ‘blown away’ by his form

Luke is ready to watch Brook shoot some dang three-pointers. The Los Angeles Lakers are going to look like a very different team next season, led by a new franchise point guard in Lonzo Ball, expected starting shooting guard in Kentavious Caldwell-Pope and three-point shooting big man in Brook Lopez. It’s that last part that has Lakers head coach Luke Walton thrilled about what the team might look like next season. Having Lopez, who shot 34.6 percent from deep while sinking 134 three-pointers, to space the floor can open up everything for the Lakers’ offense. It’s not just about...

Lakers News: Luke Walton says he hopes D’Angelo Russell ‘kicks our butts’

He also says there hasn’t been as much shade thrown at Russell as some think. The Los Angeles Lakers’ decision to move D’Angelo Russell to the Brooklyn Nets in order to get salary cap relief from Timofey Mozgov’s contract was nothing if not controversial. According Lakers head coach Luke Walton during an appearance on “The Lowe Post Podcast,” it also wasn’t easy. "It was hard for multiple reasons. Just his talent alone, he's a second-year player and he averaged like 16-6-5 this year. Then you get to know the players and you work with them day in and day out and you're sitting...

Lakers News: Luke Walton really loves Lonzo Ball’s push-ahead passes

Lakers News: Luke Walton really loves Lonzo Ball’s push-ahead passes

Like, really, REALLY loves them. Lonzo Ball’s passing has turned plenty of heads (and hit others in practice) but few things can impact a game the way his ability to get the ball up the court can. Luke Walton appeared on ESPN’s “The Lowe Post” with Zach Lowe and spoke about those passes and, well, it’s safe to say he’s a fan. “It's a simple thing,” Walton said. “But, like you said, when you're a wing player or you're a big man and you know if you run the floor, that ball's going to hit you, and he does it 100 percent of the time. “We preach to our wings and our bigs to...

Nick Young to sign one-year, $5.2 million deal with Warriors

Free-agent guard Nick Young has agreed to a one-year, $5.2 million contract with the Warriors, a source has confirmed with The Chronicle. Though not known as much of a passer, Young is a quality three-point shooter who impressed Lakers head coach Luke Walton — a Steve Kerr protege — with his defense last season. Young has averaged 12 points on 41.9 percent shooting, including 37.6 percent from beyond the arc, over a 10-year career that has spanned stops with the Wizards, Clippers, 76ers and Lakers. In his first and only season under Walton, he enjoyed a bounce-back campaign, averaging...
