1) Lakers don't even know if they have a pick.
2) Kupchak doesn't let much get out so all these rumors are just shit talk usually.
3) Bird would want the pick and a LOT more for George who is on a very nice contract given the explosion next year.
You guys heard it here first: the Lakers will offer the Kings next years top three pick for Boogie. The Kings won't accept though.
Edit: how's that work with Larry Sanders? Wasn't he under contract when he "retired"? Can he be picked up by another team if he decides to unretire or does he have to go back to the Bucks? Would he be worth having a look at if he wanted to play again?

The Los Angeles Lakers are expected to wear Magic Johnson-era throwbacks from the 1980s at some point this season, according to multiple sources.
The Lakers' previous yellow uniforms had purple numbers with a white shadow compared to their current white numbers with a purple outline that were introduced for the 99-00 season when the team moved from The Forum to Staples Center.
The white numbers actually was a nod to the uniforms during the Jerry West and Elgin Baylor era of the franchise.

Good job young fellas.
Next game: play some defense.
I love D'Lo's game, that kid is so smooth.

What? That's nonsense. Only reason Randle dropped was because of the concerns regarding his foot.
Randle has improved compared to last year. He's much more restrained and has fewer slip-ups aka bull in the china shop moments where he's just out of control with no idea what to do. He isn't setting effective screens at this point but that's something that can be taught over time.
Compared to last season he's doing a much better job of pushing the ball after a rebound, he's showing more effort on defense after showing he took plays off last season, he's less hesitant to take that 17-18 foot jumper (and actually hitting some of them) and he's playing within the system.
See the play against the Suns when he and Chandler got in to it. Last year he'd take the ball to the hole, lose it some how or throw up an awful shot. Yesterday he drew the defense towards him and made the correct play by passing it to Clarkson for the three. That's growth.
As tough as I am on him we must remember he's basically in his second season.
Oh and he's actually developing/using his right hand.
Completely disagree with your assessment of Randle.
