Lakers Rumors & News Recap: Mark Cuban Gets Heated and Words from Mitch

Mark Cuban opens his mouth and sometimes, it’s just plain controversial. And I like it. I appreciate honesty, even when it can turn argumentative. Cuban is full of things to say and he was no exception on ESPN this morning when arguing with Skip Bayless over terms and generalities in the NBA. The debate got really heated, but the best part was watching the awkward, silent faces of the other commentators. Click the link above to get to a YouTube video of the affair.

The Lakers GM Mitch Kupchak also had an interview this morning. Here, he addressed the Lakers’ chances of making a substantial move in the off-season and how they’ll be limited in terms of free agency over the summer:

“I would say it’s unlikely we would do something very major,” said Kupchak. “Something major would only involve a select few players on our team.”

So far, we have heard from Buss and Kupchak about the state of trades this summer, and it looks like us Lakers fans won’t be having any for awhile.
