The Lakers are reportedly looking at the possibility of moving Kyle Kuzma, but can they actually complete a deal? Or will they end up focusing more on the buyout market? We discussed all that and more on our latest podcasts.
Silver Screen and Roll
Host Harrison Faigen (@hmfaigen) was joined by his internet stepfather, “Coach” Pete Zayas of The Athletic, Spectrum SportsNet and Locked on Lakers (@LakerFilmRoom) to discuss the latest reports on Kuzma, and to have a wide-ranging conversation on all the human factors that may (completely understandably) limit the Lakers at the trade deadline.
Essentially, what this all boils down to is that the Lakers just went through about as difficult of a week as any NBA team has ever faced on an emotional level. Would the front office really break up all of these guys after that? Are they even in a position to? Pete and Harrison gave their best predictions on what they think will happen when the 12:00 p.m. PST, Feb. 6 deadline rolls around, and if the Lakers will make a move before then, or just wait for the buyout market to try and improve their team.
Locked on Lakers
On the other episode of their crossover event, Harrison and Pete discussed the latest reports on Andre Iguodala and Darren Collison, both of whom have been oft-rumored targets for L.A.
Harrison and Pete debated the merits of the buyout market vs. a trade, and also discussed the latest reports on the Clippers’ concern about the Lakers, as well as what Pete would change about the Lakers’ offense.
