There are so many rumors flying around about the Los Angeles Lakers during times like the NBA Draft and free agency, sometimes it's hard to keep track of all of the latest scuttlebutt. To help out our readers out a little bit, we decided to try and compile a list of every report about the Lakers we've seen so far, updated throughout the silly season with all of the latest info as it breaks.

Enjoy, and remember, check for the verifications on all Woj tweets. May none of you fall victim to fake accounts.

-The Lakers re-signed Jordan Clarkson and Tarik Black!

- And Luol Deng too

-Roy Hibbert appears to be headed for the exit, possibly to sign with the Charlotte Hornets.

- Kevin Durant is not meeting with the Lakers. Sorry guys.

- Hassan Whiteside also does not plan to meet with Los Angeles (He will re-sign with the Heat).

- Chandler Parsons and the Lakers are interested in each other (Update: Parsons is signing with the Memphis Grizzlies)

- Evan Turner and the Lakers are also interested in each other (Update: Turner signed a HUGE deal with the Blazers)

- The Lakers made Marcelo "The Catalyst" Huertas a restricted free agent.

- They did not do the same for Ryan Kelly.

- The Lakers will meet with DeMar DeRozan (Update: DeRozan re-signed with the Raptors)

- They will also "recruit" Derrick Williams

- The Lakers are additionally interested in Mike Conley (Update: he will sign a mammoth contract to stay in Memphis)

- They will also try to meet with Nicolas Batum, who is reportedly one of their top targets (Update: Batum will  sign back with the Hornets)

- The team has shown interest in Mo Harkless too.

- The Lakers are interested in signing Al Horford as well. (Update: he will sign with the Celtics)

- The team is also said to be mulling a run at Harrison Barnes

- The Lakers are reportedly sniffing around D-League star Nick Minnerath as well.

- So... Mitch Kupchak's first call at 12:01 was to Timofey Mozgov, who will sign a four-year deal worth $16 million annually.

- To round it all out, Ramona Shelburne of ESPN reports that the Lakers are interested in Ryan Anderson, Kent Bazemore, and Tyler Zeller

- The Lakers reached out to Bazemore on the first night of free agency (Update: He re-signed with Atlanta)

If the Lakers sign all of these players, that will be a few too many for a 15-man roster by my count, so look for some of this reported interest to not pan out.
