LaMarcus Aldridge gives Lakers a second look

To borrow from Mark Twain, reports of the Lakers’ offseason demise were greatly exaggerated. Or at the very least, premature. After enduring 36 hours of public ridicule following reports that the Lakers botched their Tuesday night meeting with top...

The Warriors made 883 three-pointers last season — third most in the history of the game — so it sounds silly that they want a shooter.

The Warriors agreed in principle to a five-year, $82 million deal with Green on Wednesday, keeping the restricted free agent from persuing other offers. When Curry signed his...
