@KuzmaKyle Has 2 Highlights in The TOP 5 #NBAPreseason PLAYS by #NBARooks!
🎥 @nba (H/T @ryanwardla)

NBA analysts Jeff Van Gundy and Mark Jackson discussed the start of the 2017-18 NBA season in a media conference call with ESPN’s Gianina Thompson
_
Q: How realistic is it for the Lakers to not end up in one of the lottery positions this year?
_

JACKSON: Looking at the Lakers, to me it’s about defending, competing and their habits. I think after you get through the first five, six teams in the Western Conference, the other two or three teams that make the Playoffs will be the hardest working ones, the best defending ones and the ones that compete on a nightly basis. That could be between four or five teams that have a legitimate chance, and I think that it’s up for grabs. It’s how bad do you want it rather than saying you want it. I thought it was awfully impressive. I think ultimately they will play Kuzma and Ingram together in a smaller lineup because it gives them versatility, scoring power, and play-making ability.
_

VAN GUNDY: I think the Lakers have made a lot of good moves. I think Lonzo Ball is going to live up to all the hype. I think he’s going to have an outstanding year. I still don’t see them as a playoff team just because the West, there’s going to be good teams that don’t make the Playoffs.

Julius Randle did not practice today. He suffered a right intercostal strain (muscle in his side) during last night’s game. Randle woke up without soreness, which Lakers say is a good sign. He will be re-evaluated on Monday. (via Bill Oram)

The @Lakers have requested waivers on Vander Blue, Travis Wear and Briante Weber, it was announced today.
_
Blue played in five preseason games and averaged 3.4 points, while Weber notched 3.0 points, 1.7 assists and 1.7 rebounds in three games played.
The Lakers roster stands at 16
_
If Vander Blue clears waivers, expecting he will, he could end up back with Lakers on a 2 way deal, but that decision hasn't been made as of yet. (via Eric Pincus)
_
Travis Wear is on the Exhibit 10 contract, which basically gives him incentive to sign with the G-League and not go overseas. (via Serena Winters)
