What does it all mean? There was constant noise around Covington and possible destinations but the return was looked at as less than what the Blazers gave up two years ago (two 1st round picks, Trevor Ariza) — significantly so. Meanwhile, Norman Powell was viewed as a good player on a solid contract that perhaps went out a year or two too many but ultimately there was value in the deal. So how do those two pieces end up netting the Blazers this return? What happens next?

It's been a struggle all season for the Lakers to find supporting players to put around their Big 3 (it's been a struggle to keep the Big 3 on the floor, too, but that's a different story). Kent Bazemore, Wayne Ellington, and Trevor Ariza have all been ineffective. DeAndre Jordan, too. Kendrick Nunn is yet to play. A bright spot, though, has been the pickup of Stanley Johnson, who has brought badly needed athleticism on the defensive end, and quickly become a favorite of Frank Vogel. Wednesday, the Lakers reached an agreement with Johnson that will keep him around for the rest of the season, and give the Lakers first dibs on his services next year as well. It's a good deal for all involved, and it's not impossible that, stripped of the expectations that come with being a high lottery pick, Johnson, still only 25, could find a niche and develop with the Lakers. Not into a star - that ship has sailed - but as a valuable role player. It's a cool payoff for a player who worked very hard to make his way back to the NBA. From there... the great NBA writer Marc Stein has news about Russell Westbrook, and those rumors about a potential deal to the Houston Rockets for John Wall. It seems the Lakers, rightly, are unwilling to include a first round pick to rid themselves of Westbrook. But it's an applaudingly cheeky move from the Rockets to put that possibility out there, just in case things melt down and the Lakers get desperate. Meanwhile, Ramona Shelburne of ESPN wrote a great feature this week talking about Westbrook post-benching, and how he and the Lakers are trying to get the on-court results from this roster to match expectations. A couple important takeaways: There's no Plan B. The Lakers know they're pot-committed to this experiment. Westbrook's comfort zone extends well beyond what he's doing on the floor. HOSTS: Andy and Brian Kamenetzky SEGMENT 1: Stanley Johnson gets a contract. Cool for him, smart for the Lakers. SEGMENT 2: On Westbrook for Wall. The Lakers, it seems have their limits when it comes to undoing the Westbrook deal. SEGMENT 3: What goes into Westbrook's overall comfort? How have off court adjustments impacted him?

At long last, Anthony Davis is back in uniform! And not surprisingly, unless you've truly given up on any hope for this season and officially entered the gloom sphere, the Lakers looked notably better during a 106-96 win in Brooklyn over the Nets. It wasn't so much that Davis dominated while on the court. He only scored eight points, spent much of the game in foul trouble and often looked like a player still getting his timing back. But given his talent and importance to this team on both sides of the ball, his mere presence made a tangible difference, whether schematically or just psychologically. The Lakers are now, save Kendrick Nunn, whole again, with a rotation that's largely set, and Davis' availability allows them to play their best guys. (Trevor Ariza and Dwight Howard both went from starters to DNP-CD, and Stanley Johnson joined the first five.) Guys felt more comfortable taking chances defensively, knowing AD constituted the backline. Down the line, things fell into place. To be clear, Davis isn't a panacea by himself, and there's still a LOT of work to be done moving forward. But if the Lakers at least want an opportunity to reach their highest ceiling, however high you think that is, the opportunity ain't happening without AD.

With the taste of Wednesday's hideous loss to the Kings still too fresh in the collective mouth of Lakers Nation, it's no surprise that Thursday's news was centered a lot around potential trades. Reports that the Lakers are interested in Toronto Raptors swingman Gary Trent Jr., who at only 23 has come into his own as a shooter and would certainly give the Lakers another threat on the perimeter. Could he be had for the standard Lakers package of Talen Horton-Tucker, Kendrick Nunn and draft considerations? Would that be a deal worth making for LA? Is the team any closer to a viable path to Detroit's Jerami Grant, now that the Knicks (an awkward but frequently mentioned potential suitor for the Pistons forward) acquired former Hawk Cam Reddish Thursday afternoon? How about a hypothetical uber-blockbuster that would send Westbrook to Philly for Simmons AND Tobias Harris, who is apparently available if it helps the Sixers move their disgruntled star. The RealGM trade constructor says a deal can be done. But would Philly, or any team, agree to take on Westbrook given his current performance and huge player option for next year? Those topics, plus a look at the team's supporting cast. Trevor Ariza is back in the lineup, but of late at least looks every bit of 36 years old. Stanley Johnson, meanwhile, continues playing hard but with more exposure it's easy to see his limitations, and why he was available for the Lakers to begin with. One question the Lakers have to consider: Is this team worth trying to rescue? Or would it be better to wait until the offseason, when it's easier to construct deals and the market is more stable? HOSTS: Andy and Brian Kamenetzky SEGMENT 1: Ariza and Johnson - How is this going to play out? Can either be significant contributors over the second half? What would that look like? SEGMENT 2: Looking at rumors around Gary Trent Jr.. If the Lakers could swing it, should they? Would Toronto agree to that? SEGMENT 3: How about a hypothetical built around Ben Simmons? Yes? No? Either way, it demonstrates how hard it will be to unwind the Russ deal. Support Us By Supporting Our Sponsors! Built Bar Built Bar is a protein bar that tastes like a candy bar.

Portland Trailblazers vs. LA Lakers NBA Pick Prediction 12/31/2021 by Tony T. Trailblazers at Lakers—LAL is without Davis, Nunn and Rondo. Avery Bradley is questionable. Trevor Ariza may play. For Portland out are CJ McCollum, Covington and Nurkic plus several reserves. Portland has lost eight of ten following their 120-105 home defeat to Utah Jazz. Trailblazers 26th in defensive efficiency in this span by allowing 114.2 points per 100 possessions. LA has lost six of seven with their 104-99 road defeat on a back to back to the Memphis Grizzlies. Lakers 28th in offensive efficiency in this period by averaging 104.2 points per 100 possessions while surrendering 114.5 per 100 on defense. Trailblazers have lost 12 of 14 on the road. LAL net rating of -10.3 in this period makes it tough to lay nearly two possessions. Play Portland +5.5.

Looking Back at a Disappointing 2021 for the Lakers, Finding Some Optimism for 2022

Locked On Lakers - Daily Podcast On The Los Angeles Lakers

Not that you need to be told, but 2021 was not exactly a good 12 months for the Lakers. One season with high hopes flamed out in a wave of injuries, and another is on track to disappoint as well, thanks to another combination of bad health and bad roster choices. But that future isn't yet written! It's time to look back at the year that was, and find reasons for Lakers fans to be optimistic about what still could be for the 2021-22 squad. Any sense of hope, though, is contingent at least in part on winning all the winnable games the Lakers have in front of them, even with Anthony Davis still sidelined. That starts with the next four games on the schedule -- Friday vs. Portland, Sunday vs. Minnesota, then games against the Kings and Hawks. All at home. All teams below .500, two of them (the Wolves and Sacto) tightly packed behind the Lakers in the West. That these games are more important than Wednesday's loss in Memphis, or upcoming games against, say, Utah, explain where the team is right now. The Lakers will get some reinforcements, though, which should help them capitalize on what's coming. Austin Reaves, Trevor Ariza and Kent Bazemore will all be available this weekend, opening up more options for Frank Vogel/David Fizdale as the team leans into small lineups. It's time to shove the old year out the door, and welcome in a new one! HOSTS: Andy and Brian Kamenetzky SEGMENT 1: The Lakers have four very winnable games coming up, all at home. They need to take advantage. SEGMENT 2: The Lakers are getting (badly needed) players back. Is that going to squeeze Talen Horton-Tucker from the rotation? Why the Lakers could find themselves in a bit of a Catch-22. SEGMENT 3: Looking back at 2021, finding reasons for optimism in 2022. Support Us By Supporting Our Sponsors!

After the Lakers' tough loss to Phoenix on Tuesday, one of many moments of a continually tough season, interim head coach David Fizdale explained how LeBron James and Frank Vogel are working in concert to help the team stay patient, but also focused and accountable. Beyond this being good to hear from a process standpoint, it was also nice to hear just as verification of the two on the same page, given the rumors flying around that Vogel is coaching for his job. Frankly, you know things are getting weird when Shams Charania of The Athletic and Stadium was asked on Pat McAfee's show about internet chatter that LeBron may ask for a trade. A very far-fetched prospect indeed, but dumb rumors like this are only happening because the team is stuck at .500, Anthony Davis is hurt, LeBron ain't getting any younger, etc. As such, it's important for LeBron and Vogel to be unified. Meanwhile, should Trevor Ariza, who played well against the Suns, get moved into the starting lineup, presumably for Talen Horton-Tucker? How can his minutes, and the minutes of his fellow oldies, be kept down, whether starting or coming off the bench? And finally, Thursday's game against the Spurs marks the final game inside Staples Center, heretofore (or until the next naming rights deal) known as Crypto.Com Arena. A lot of fans don't like this change. Are they making something out of nothing? Or is the name of the building meaningfully connected to what's happened there? Hosts: Andy and Brian Kamenetzky Segment 1: The Kamenetzkys discuss chatter that LeBron would want to be traded, plus his relationship with Frank Vogel Segment 2: Should the Lakers consider starting Trevor Ariza, or just taking Talen Horton-Tucker out of that lineup?

The Lakers were shorthanded entering Tuesday's game against the Phoenix Suns, arguably the best team in the NBA. L.A. has had zero continuity all season long, the Suns as much as any team in the league. The Lakers have a roster that is, to be sure, kinda weird. Phoenix has one of the most well-constructed groups you'll find. No surprise then that after a slow first half where they couldn't hit the broad side of a barn, the Suns used the final two quarters to pull away from the home team, beating the Lakers at Staples, 108-90. LeBron James played very well, Russell Westbrook did too (until some late turnovers, at least), illustrating how little margin for error the Lakers have right now. How they navigate games, particularly against good teams, is going to be tricky. On a positive note, the Lakers got a good performance from Trevor Ariza in his second game of the year, hitting all three of his triples and playing his typically steady, well-positioned defense. Talen Horton-Tucker, however, in his first game back from Covid protocols, was a disaster, as was Isaiah Thomas. Who can be a reliable "third guy" for the time being? Finally, Adam Silver has said the NBA won't be going on a Covid-related hiatus. Should it? Is it safe to keep playing? Or has the world changed enough with vaccines and treatments that the response has to change as well? HOSTS: Andy and Brian Kamenetzky SEGMENT 1: The Lakers lose on Tuesday, frankly as expected. What does it say about what's coming? SEGMENT 2: Ariza looked good, THT looked terrible, and the Lakers had better perform over their next few games, or they could have real problems in the Western Conference standings.

In a season filled with a string of disappointments, from bad losses to injuries to, now, what appears to be a (hopefully contained) Covid outbreak, the Lakers have been short on genuinely good and joyous stories. The exception there has been undrafted rookie Austin Reaves, who started off as a ready-made substitute to make Alex Caruso-themed jokes, before building into a player the Lakers might be able to use more than expected, before becoming someone the Lakers needed in their rotation. Wednesday in Dallas, Reaves became a damned hero, nailing the game winner in overtime to give the Lakers a third straight win. He hit five of six from downtown, overall, and Frank Vogel said after he couldn't pull Reaves off the floor because his defense was too good. In the short term, the Lakers will give Reaves a lot of floor time because they don't have many players (Malik Monk, Talen Horton-Tucker and Dwight Howard are in the Covid protocols and Trevor Ariza is still not ready) but long term for a team desperate for predictable two-way players, Reaves is quickly becoming indispensable. Meanwhile, it wasn't a great night for the Big Three. None were bad, none were great, and yet the Lakers won. That hasn't been the norm through most of the season. It's because they got just enough when it was needed most, and the team was willing to commit for four quarters (plus five minutes) defensively. Yes, the Mavs struggled on their own, but LA put in the work. Are they turning a corner, not necessarily in their performance (they were held under 100 points in regulation, so the offense has some work left to do. But they won anyway. LeBron talked about it after - what does this say about the group's evolution? HOSTS: Andy and Brian Kamenetzky SEGMENT 1: Austin Reaves, the hero the Lakers want AND the hero the Lakers need. This is a really cool story. SEGMENT 2: The Big Three weren't great, but the Lakers won anyway. That's meaningful for this team, given their track record this season. SEGMENT 3: LeBron talked about the team's identity. How are they recalibrating their sense of collective self? How important is that for turning things around in a meaningful way?

LeBron James won his eleventybillionth Conference Player of the Week award this week, to go along with other honoraries he's gained over the course of his career. Little things like Conference Player of the Month, MVP and Finals MVP. But while it's nice, and indicative of the way he's played of late, obviously LeBron doesn't care about that sort of thing. It is, however, one small sign that things are slowly turning around for L.A.. Or could be, at least. That's if LeBron can stay healthy, given his workload. And if Anthony Davis can recover quickly from his knee injury. And if Trevor Ariza returns quickly enough from his absence, and then contributes in the way the Lakers hope he can. So there are variables! Meanwhile, it's about time for some early season MVP predictions and straw polls, and what's notable for the Lakers isn't who is on the list, but that the people you'd expect to be on it aren't. Not that LeBron, Davis or Russell Westbrook are necessarily worthy of MVP votes, but it shows how nothing this season is going to plan. The MVP thing doesn't "matter" in any real way but it's a good proxy for how things are going. If by the end of the year Davis, James and even Westbrook gain some votes, it'll mean the Lakers have gone up in the standings and are seen again as high end contenders. If they don't... ooof. Meanwhile, LeBron revealed some of his sleeping habits on Sunday following the win over Orlando. And it has given the hosts all sorts of jealous feelings. Finally, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports that the Lakers are interested in both Detroit's Jerami Grant and Philly's Ben Simmons. How realistic are either one of these scenarios, on a scale of 0-10? What would adding Simmons mean, particularly if the Lakers did it while keeping Westbrook? Support Us By Supporting Our Sponsors!

The wins against bad teams don't tend to impress, but given where the Lakers are in the standings and in their schedule, you can make a solid argument that games against OKC (Friday) and Orlando (Sunday) are the most important ones they play. Because as the schedule tightens up - and it will - some losses are going to come. The Lakers simply can't let games against terrible opposition get away from them. They took care of business Friday, and did it again Sunday, knocking off the Magic 106-94 at Staples. Once again, Anthony Davis was on the sidelines with a bum knee. Once again, LeBron James set a tone for the team and led them to victory. 30 points, 11 rebounds, 10 assists, three blocked shots. James was big on both sides of the ball, and after the game his high end play was the topic of conversation. First, as a sign he's getting healthier, but also prompting the totally legitimate question of whether or not this sort of engagement and production is sustainable through the rest of the year, or if it's a good idea to ask for it. (And, by extension, if it's a bad sign they might have to.) But beyond health, is any sensitivity to potential criticism of "LeGM" following the Russell Westbrook play part of his resurgence? There has been some chatter, and LeBron hears everything... Finally, Talen Horton-Tucker had one of his stronger games since returning to the starting lineup, with 19 points, three triples and six (6!) steals. After, Frank Vogel talked about why he's in the starting lineup and what is expected of him. Does he stay there, though, when Trevor Ariza returns and provides Vogel more optionality on defense? HOSTS: Andy and Brian Kamenetzky SEGMENT 1: LeBron leads the Lakers to a second straight win. Are the Lakers playing with fire by requiring him to do this much? SEGMENT 2: What accounts for LeBron's resurgence? Is it just health? Is there a little more at play? And are the Lakers finally catching a little bit of sustained good fortune? The kind that will give them enough space to actually start putting the pieces together in a meaningful way? SEGMENT 3: THT's space in the starting lineup. Why he's there, despite some spacing fits, and whether or not he stays. Support Us By Supporting Our Sponsors! Built Bar Built Bar is a protein bar that tastes like a candy bar.

The struggle has been real for the Lakers this season. Not enough wins, period, but virtually nothing against any of the NBA's decent-or-better squads. The closest thing LA had to a signature win going into Tuesday's matchup with the Celtics at Staples was one over Miami... who was missing Jimmy Butler for most of the contest. But Boston came in playing well, with an offense that was clicking big time, and after a hot start from Jayson Tatum, the Lakers shut the visitors down, rolling to a 117-102 win. There was a lot going on - LA's Big Three all showed up. LeBron James set a tone early and finished with 30 points. Russell Westbrook, who has been the best and most consistent Laker over the last couple weeks, was again excellent, with 25 points and 11 assists against only four turnovers. Anthony Davis had 17 points, but was active inside, led the Lakers with 16 rebounds and had two blocks. Frank Vogel leaned into his smaller lineups. The Lakers pushed pace, hard. So is this the win that jump starts the squad? Was Frank Vogel feeling quite as chesty after this one as he did when the Lakers beat down the Kings last week? Is the lineup we saw tonight the one that'll stick going forward, with Trevor Ariza sliding in once available? And how much of tonight's hyper-engaged performance from LeBron can be linked to his comments about Vogel and his job security? So much to discuss on one of the happiest nights of the year for Lakers fans, and the team, too. HOSTS: Andy and Brian Kamenetzky SEGMENT 1: Winning big feels nice. Winning big against the Celtics? EVEN BETTER! The Lakers played some serious D behind a very serious LeBron, and the results were strong. Is this the blueprint? SEGMENT 2: Westbrook continues to play well. Are we done talking about his struggles? Are the lineup choices Vogel made the ones we'll see going forward? SEGMENT 3: Asked this week about Vogel's work, LeBron didn't throw him under the bus, but he didn't exactly deliver a full-throated endorsement of him, either. What's going on here?

Avery Bradley's playing time (as in "why does he play so much?") has been a source of great controversy among Lakers fans and media. Well, Frank Vogel was asked by Brian himself on Monday after Lakers practice exactly what keeps Bradley in the lineup. As Vogel explained, a lot has to do with Bradley's mindset, which mirrors what his coach wants from a team that's not playing hard enough on a regular basis. And say what you will about Bradley, but he never takes off possessions. Still, is that a valid reason, when the numbers say way otherwise? Another interesting wrinkle from practice was a Q&A with Trevor Ariza, who's been largely out of sight while recovering from ankle surgery. There's still no timetable for a return, but that he spoke with the media at all would indicate he's relatively close. @DodgerDanD told the Kamenetzkys via Twitter (@kambrothers) that Vogel propping up the 37 year-old Ariza as a future difference maker is ridiculous. Is he right? And finally, another harsh fan comment, this time on the Locked On Lakers YouTube channel from "TK." In a nutshell, the poster thinks Anthony Davis is overrated and not doing nearly enough to elevate the Lakers. Hosts; Andy and Brian Kamenetzky SEGMENT ONE: Frank Vogel explains his rationale for starting Avery Bradley. Does it hold water? SEGMENT TWO: More on Bradley, plus an update on Trevor Ariza.

The Lakers are coming off a win where they held Houston to 85 points. Granted, the Rockets are a godawful team, with about six months of collective NBA experience between the players, but that's still a very low score. Is this a sign of the Lakers starting to drill down on Frank Vogel's defensive principles? Without getting ahead of ourselves... perhaps. Russell Westbrook talked after Monday's practice pretty candidly about how he needs to adjust some past habits of gambling and going for steals, and play within a more structured defensive scheme. Westbrook isn't known (rightly) as a particularly good defender, and correcting bad habits isn't simple, especially for superstars used to getting their way, but trying to is the first step. And an important one, since this team isn't blessed with enough plus defenders where guys can get away with doing their own thing. Along these lines, Avery Bradley's minutes have been steadily rising, which wasn't necessarily expected when he signed a late preseason non-guaranteed deal. But perhaps it should have been, because Vogel loves Bradley, and Bradley is a very conscientious, determined defender. It doesn't feel coincidental that he's starting to play more, nor does it feel as certain that his stay with the team will be short. If he's a permanent part of the rotation, particularly once guys like Trevor Ariza, Talen Horton-Tucker and Kendrick Nunn return, what will that mean for the divvying of minutes? For that matter, do we imagine him as a permanent part of a small ball starting lineup like Vogel ran out Sunday? Finally, Carmelo Anthony is thriving as a sixth man, but takes exception with a narrative where it's surprising that he'd accept this role. Does he have a point?

The Lakers are now above .500 after a 95-85 win over a seriously hapless Houston Rockets squad, and by flipping their typical script. For once, it was their defense that was most reliable, while the offense was spotty. Granted, it snuck up on Brian that the Lakers' offense has been so effective in the first place, but frankly, given the defense the front office sacrificed this offseason to improve the scoring, it ought to be better. Take away a penchant for awful turnovers, like the Lakers actually did on Sunday, and for the most part, that's been the case. But how much was the improved defense indicative of better execution vs. the fortune of a terrible opponent? It's hard to say. But similar to Carmelo Anthony's four block/two steal night, which isn't likely to be repeated anytime soon, as long as the Lakers can regularly do something in between tonight and their most pathetic, at least some issues can be fixed until the return of potentially helpful folks like Trevor Ariza, Talen Horton-Tucker and Kendrick Nunn. (This is another area where if the Lakers stopped turning the ball over so much, it would help a lot.) Finally, Frank Vogel changed the starting lineup, sliding Anthony Davis to center and putting Avery Bradley into the backcourt alongside Russell Westbrook. The decision was sparked in part by Dwight Howard's unavailability (neck stiffness), so they needed DeAndre Jordan as a backup center option. But it was something Vogel had considered anyway, and the Rockets were a good match for this experiment. Time will tell how often Vogel keeps this look, but either way, it felt like a sign of more minutes to come for Bradley.

The sting of Wednesday's loss to Oklahoma City, in which the Lakers blew a 26-point lead, is still pretty fresh. The concern over a second straight missed game for LeBron James is palpable. Kendrick Nunn, Talen Horton-Tucker, Trevor Ariza and Wayne Ellington remain on the sidelines. The Lakers have not even staged a single practice with their full roster intact, and it's not going to get better anytime soon. So what exactly can accomplish right now? Those are the big issues for Friday's show, starting with LeBron's ankle injury. No word yet about his status for Friday's game against Cleveland at Staples Center, but whether he plays or not, given his injury history with the Lakers, how much concern should missed games in the first couple weeks create? Especially given how critical he is to the team's identity and on-court continuity? What about the defense? Guys are missing, for sure. How much impact will the return of important rotation players actually have? On the one hand, the guys they're missing are among the team's best defenders. On the other, we're not talking about a bunch of Defensive Player of the Year candidates, here. Are the Lakers going to be too reliant on LeBron and Anthony Davis to play high end defense for an entire season? What does that mean for their health, and the ability to produce on the other end? How good is good enough? Finally, it's time to check out Davis, who was the subject of an interesting mini-debate on Lakers Twitter about his performance thus far. How has his offense evolved? Where are the shots coming from this year relative to others in L.A.? Should Davis abandon the 3-point shot, which he's been encouraged to take for a while now? HOSTS: Andy and Brian Kamenetzky SEGMENT 1: Ok, LeBron's hurt. It's ok to be nervous, right? Because he's the sun around which the rest of this stuff orbits? SEGMENT 2: What's real and what's not through five games, particularly on defense. How much is fixable today, what might be fixed when guys get healthy, and once they are back... just how good can this team be? SEGMENT 3: Davis is managing very high expectations. How has he played? Is the shot selection as ideal as it should be? Spoiler alert: The answer to the last one has little to do with whether he plays center or power forward. Support Us By Supporting Our Sponsors!

The last several days have not been kind to the Lakers. They've yet to win a preseason game. Trevor Ariza is out indefinitely after ankle surgery. Malik Monk is sidelined (albeit hopefully not for long) with a groin issue. And then came Monday's news that Talen Horton Tucker will require surgery to repair torn ligaments in his thumb. It's not yet known how long the recovery will take, but it goes without saying that the Lakers will be without their emerging young player for a sizable period. Beyond the loss of THT's individual skills, the Lakers are extremely low on dudes who could conceivably (much less credibly) play small forward. It's basically now LeBron James, Kent Bazemore... and crickets. This was already a thin position on the roster, but Rob Pelinka seemed content to keep the fifteenth roster spot open, rather than add some depth, Now that feels damn near impossible to justify. Whether James Ennis, Wes Matthews or whoever, the Lakers need a live body who can credibly play 10-15 minutes at the spot. On the positive side, Tuesday's preseason game against the Warriors should finally feature the long-awaited preseason debuts of LeBron, Anthony Davis and Russell Westbrook as a trio.

The Lakers are the Oldest team in the NBA -The Los Angeles Lakers have filled out most of the roster and we are at the point in the offseason where the team is going to explore its final roster options. This will likely include the team signing a locker room veteran (such as Jared Dudley) but it could also include a young player to develop or a sharpshooter to help the rotation.It would not be all that surprising to see the Lakers also leave one open roster spot for a future 10-day contract or buyout signing. It is smart to go into the season with 14 players instead of 15. The Lakers are currently at 12.There has been a bit of a trend this offseason as Rob Pelinka has brought back four players who were formerly on the Lakers. Dwight Howard, Trevor Ariza, Wayne Ellington and Kent Bazemore are all former Lakers.We have explored some of the former Lakers on the market but one name that has not come up much is Isaiah Thomas — who is in the news right now as he dropped an 81-point game, Kobe Bryant style…

There is some serious trouble brewing in Los Angeles! The L.A Lakers are missing Anthony Davis, Marc Gasol, and most recently, LeBron James. The team was barely holding it together when AD and Gasol were out, but they were able to win 4 games in a row because LeBron was playing at an MVP level. with him out, how far will the Lakers fall in the standings? Across the hall, the L.A clippers are 6-8 in their last 14 games, and cannot sem to string two wins together, even the teams' superstar Kawhi Leonard and Coach Ty Lue both voiced their concerns about the teams' lack of consistency. The news around the league is that they are shopping for a starting point guard, are any of the available players the answer to their problem? especially looking at how restricted they are with the salary cap.We also discuss the Miami Heat's resurgence and their addition of veteran forward Trevor Ariza, The Milwaukee Bucks, and their addition of PJ Tucker as well as the future for the Toronto Raptors!Hope you enjoy this episode!

Now that the dust has settled after a rapid-fire offseason, the Portland Trail Blazers appear to have a deeper and more talented roster, especially on defense. STORY:  The NBA fast-tracked its offseason, with the start of trade season, the draft and free agency all starting and (mostly) wrapping up last week. In a stretch of seven days, Portland made the following moves: Traded for Robert Covington. Portland gave up forward Trevor Ariza, this year's first-round pick and a future first-round pick. Drafted C.J. Elleby in the second round. Traded for Enes Kanter. This was part of a three-team deal that sent guard/forward Mario Hezonja to Memphis. Resigned Rodney Hood Signed free agent Derrick Jones Jr. Resigned Carmelo Anthony Signed free agent Harry Giles The move for Covington was the headliner and the reason so many national pundits have raved about the Blazers' offseason. "The Blazers felt one medium-sized move and some good health away from being a problem," said ESPN's Zach Lowe. Covington might be the perfect piece to lock everything into its proper place." But the Blazers also shored up their depth. Depending on who starts, Portland's reserve unit could feature Gary Trent Jr., Anthony, Kanter and Collins, Hood or Jones Jr. "We wanted to be more athletic, we wanted to be better defensively this year," said Neil Olshey, the Trail Blazers' president of basketball operations. "We wanted more versatility on the perimeter, we wanted to be able to switch more and be more disruptive on defense, more aggressive on that end." At least on paper, it seems like Olshey and the Blazers accomplished many of those goals. How it all gels on the court remains to be seen, but Blazers fans won't have to wait much longer. NBA preseason games begin Dec. 11 and the regular season starts Dec. 22. KGW's 3-on-3 Blazers podcast team got together Wednesday to talk about the Blazers' moves and make some predictions about the season ahead. Learn more about your ad choices.

There's also a great game of "Where is...?" (Pau Gasol, Jordan Bell, DeMarre Carroll & Trevor Ariza), and predictions for worst record in the league (not picking on the Knicks this time), and best 3-point percentage!
