OPINIÓN ·Hoy os vengo a hablar de Vander Blue, jugador de nuestro filial en la D-League, los D-Fenders, quien se está haciendo un temporadón. ---------- ·Vander Blue anoche con sus 29 puntos se convirtió en el cuarto máximo anotador en la historia de la D-League. ---------- ·Se trata de un escolta de 1.93 de altura de tan solo 24 años que tiene una gran capacidad para anotar además de ser muy atlético. ---------- ·En estos momentos contamos con demasiados jugadores en la plantilla que no tienen ningún rol que sea medianamente importante como pueden ser Calderón, Huertas, Metta World Peace o incluso jugadores como Deng, quien no ha encontrado su puesto en el equipo. Por ello creo que lo más sano en el caso de los primeros tres, sería cortar a alguien o en el caso de Deng traspasarlo y subir a Blue quien a base de grandes actuaciones se ha ganado un sitio en la plantilla. ---------- ·Esperemos que el equipo se de cuenta y no le deje marchar a otra franquicia. ¿Y vosotros qué opináis? · · #Lakers#LakerNation#LakeShow#Blue#VanderBlue

Lakers Rumors: Shabazz Muhammad Considering Joining L.A.
With training camp just weeks away the Los Angeles Lakers currently have 19 total players under contract, with 14 of those being guaranteed. That leaves room for one more player to be invited to camp with a chance to make the team.
Things have been quiet on the Lakers front as far as bringing in another player, but one of the more intriguing free agent wings available is former Minnesota Timberwolves forward Shabazz Muhammad. The former lottery pick from UCLA has come into his own over the last couple of years as a dangerous scorer off the bench and according to Eric Pincus of Bleacher Report, Muhammad is considering joining the Lakers: I'm told #ShabazzMuhammad considering joining his former agent Rob Pelinka with Lakers, LA considering options as well. Muhammad is a very strong, physical wing who does a lot of his work inside the paint as most players at his position aren’t strong enough to stop him from getting to the basket. He does make sense for the Lakers as another potential bench scorer considering Luol Deng and Corey Brewer are more defensive-minded players.
It is interesting that the Lakers do have that connection already with Rob Pelinka being the general manager. When he was first hired, it was believed that his connections could help bring some free agents to L.A. and that could be the case here.
The Lakers do still possess a $4.3 million room exception that they could use to sign Muhammad or simply give him a minimum contract. Either way, at only 24 years old, Muhammad fits in with the young Lakers roster and could be a great get for the team on a one-year deal.
Last season in Minnesota Muhammad averaged 9.9 points and 2.8 rebounds while shooting 48.2 percent from the field in only 19.4 minutes per game.
BREAKING: The Los Angeles Lakers have been fined $500,000 for violating the NBA's rules against tampering after an investigation revealed they had impermissible contact with Paul George's agent, the league announced Thursday.
The investigation found Lakers general manager Rob Pelinka expressed interest in acquiring George while he was under contract with another team. According to the NBA's statement, the league had already warned the Lakers after team president Magic Johnson made impermissible comments about George on Jimmy Kimmel Live in April.
