Although the Los Angeles Lakers chose to stand pat at the NBA trade deadline for the second consecutive year, the club still found a way to add a big name (and body) with their signing of Andre Drummond, who practiced for the team for the first time on Tuesday.

Drummond also offers the Lakers the additional big they’ve long been rumored to be looking for. So with Drummond set to make his starting debut on Wednesday against the Milwaukee Bucks — and other Lakers rumblings bubbling up to the surface — our hosts Alex Padilla and Alex Regla had a lot to talk about on this week’s edition of “Talk-O Tuesday.”
