"You want to put somebody on the court, but you can't because of minutes", he said. The two-time NBA Defensive Player of the Year was injured Friday during a victory against the Phoenix Suns.
"With Kobe [Bryant] gone and the young core players that we have, and I think players understand and see what Lonzo Ball brings to the table as a point guard, I really think we are in a good place and I think [Johnson] will be able to deliver next year".

"Whatever you want to say about LaVar Ball, he has smoked out the fact that the Lakers do not support Luke Walton", Windhorst said (h/t Slam's Ryne Nelson). "Luke doesn't have control of the team no more".
The trade proposal I am going to talk about has no rumblings outside of initial talks in mid-December before breaking down, but is the one that would actually work out for both sides.
