Lakers Nation Senior Writer Trevor Lane is back with another edition of the Lakers Nation Podcast, this time breaking down the Lakers’ 116-104 preseason loss to the Sacramento Kings. We get into D’Angelo Russell’s incredible bounce-back performance and also discuss the team’s defensive struggles as the young players attempt to grow as professionals. Plus, we take a look at guard Lou William’s rough outing against the Kings’ veteran starters, and whether or not we may see a change to the starting lineup during Saturday’s game against the Golden State Warriors.
In this episode we also dive into the decision to release Travis Wear, Julian Jacobs, and Zach Auguste, and what this might mean for the Lakers D-League affiliate, the D-Fenders. We also take a moment to talk about the exciting news regarding a new Collective Bargaining Agreement and how the rumored changes might impact Los Angeles down the road.
All that and more in today’s jam-packed episode:
