Lakers News & Rumors Recap: Plan B in Full Effect

Kobe, Gasol, NashDwight departed Los Angeles last week, but that hasn’t stopped the Lakers from making some crucial team decisions. The problem is that the Lakers are very limited financially what they can offer to fill in the roster for next season.

Rumors started this weekend that the Lakers have reached out to Lamar Odom. The star had played seven seasons with the Lakers and was also Sixth Man of the Year in 2011. He won two championships with the team in 2009 and 2010. Even though he averaged 13.8 points and 9.5 rebounds per game with the Lakers, his season with the Clippers wasn’t as promising as he only averaged 4.0 points and 5.9 rebounds per game. The Lakers could offer him the veteran minimum.

The team did not cut Pau Gasol after Howard went elsewhere, which has been a relief to many fans, but a gap was still left in the big man position until today. The Lakers have agreed to a one-year deal with Chris Kaman, who will most likely be a solid back-up for Gasol who has knee issues. Plus, the fact that it’s a one-year deal will keep the Lakers books clear when next season rolls around and they’re looking to make big free agency moves.

Unfortunately, the Los Angeles Lakers have decided to use the amnesty clause on veteran small forward Metta World Peace and save themselves $30 million dollars. World Peace chose to exercise his player option on the final year of his deal with the team. World Peace will hit the waiver wire and will become available to teams with cap space before being available to the highest bidder as an unrestricted free agent.

This Saturday, there will be a public memorial service to honor the life and times of Flynn Robinson, who passed away on May 23, 2013. If Lakers fans are interested in attending, here are the memorial service details: Saturday, July 13 – 12:00 @ Noon. It will take place at the West Angeles Church Performing Arts Theatre at 3020 Crenshaw Blvd., Los Angeles, CA 90016.
