    We all wanted Ennis but I trust their decision making. Like you said they must have seen or heard something they didn’t like. May be couldn’t agree on playing time, money, or whatever it is.
    I also have faith they must have seen something in Reaves they really liked and wanted to reward his summer league play. Not sure if we needed another guard but I am Rooting for the kid

    Who will they give the open 2 way contract to? I would personally consider Trevelin Queen or Chaundee Brown

    Not to overreact but for a 6'5" PG, I like the fundamentals. Kid looks confident as well. 3 years from today, its hopefully a AR/THT combo off the bench.

    According to Bill Oram, Shams Charania, and Sam Amick of*The Athletic, superstar*Anthony Davis*is expected to be the team’s starting center.

    “Since Davis arrived from New Orleans two years ago, the Lakers’ best lineups have featured him at center,” Oram, Charania and Amick wrote. “With [Russell] Westbrook aboard, sources said Davis has emerged as the expected starting center, clearing the way for a likely starting five of him, [Russell] Westbrook, [Wayne] Ellington, [Trevor] Ariza and [LeBron] James, according to sources. Third-year guard*Talen Horton-Tucker, a rising, young talent for the Lakers, is also expected to compete in camp for a possible starting role.”

    Los Angeles Lakers*superstar*LeBron James*recently*organized a three-day minicamp*for the team in Las Vegas.

    James saw the minicamp as a way for the team to build chemistry ahead of the 2021-22 season. The Lakers have many new faces on the roster as they look to win their second title in three seasons.

    One of those new faces is guard Austin Reaves, who*signed*to a two-year contract with the Lakers on Sunday. Reaves had previously been on a two-way deal with the team.

    Reaves reportedly performed well at the Lakers’ minicamp. Moreover, James and*Russell Westbrook*apparently decided to have some fun with the youngster.

    “On Sunday, the Lakers reached agreement on a two-year deal with guard Austin Reaves, converting his two-way contract to a standard NBA deal ahead of training camp,”*wrote*Bill Oram, Shams Charania and Sam Amick of The Athletic. “The Lakers will have a team option on the second year of Reaves‘ contract, sources said. Reaves, a 6-foot-5 combo guard, has impressed the Lakers throughout the offseason and had a strong showing at James’ minicamp. James and Westbrook even had the rookie conduct some fun-loving errands throughout the weekend in Vegas.”

    Lakers explored trading for Damian Lillard


    In the two months that followed their first-round playoff flop against Phoenix, when Davis’ groin injury left them pulling up lame, the Lakers explored the prospect of trading for such stars as Damian Lillard, Bradley Beal, DeMar DeRozan and Russell Westbrook. The process unfolded well beyond the team’s front office’s search, with James setting up a war room of his own at his Brentwood estate for some in-person player meetings while leading remote communications in other conversations. – via Bill Oram, Shams Charania, Sam Amick @ The Athletic

    The group focused first on Lillard and Beal, but with no viable path to trading for either of them, turned their attention to more realistic targets: Westbrook, DeRozan, Hield and Kyle Lowry, who would eventually pursue a deal with the Miami Heat instead. – via Bill Oram, Shams Charania, Sam Amick @ The Athletic

    A lot of possible deals, but West was the one that worked best for the team at the end.
    Russell Westbrook wanted Bradley Beal to ask out of Washington


    And before Westbrook resorted to calling Leonsis, he had tried to convince Beal in the weeks leading up to the draft that they should both ask out of Washington, according to sources. – via Bill Oram, Shams Charania, Sam Amick @ The Athletic

    Short of Beal showing a desire to also request a trade, Westbrook was hopeful Beal would at least support his efforts to get to L.A. — which, sources said, Beal did. – via Bill Oram, Shams Charania, Sam Amick @ The Athletic

    After weeks of conversation with James, Davis and then-Lakers forward Jared Dudley, who emerged as a sort of consigliere to the Lakers’ superstars in these meetings, Westbrook believed he was on his way to L.A. For years he had angled to get home, and now everything was lining up for it to finally happen. There was only one problem: The Lakers’ efforts to complete the fairytale had been repeatedly stymied by the Wizards’ refusal to make Westbrook available because, sources said, they still planned on moving forward with the Westbrook-Beal backcourt. Westbrook, for his part, would have played out the remaining two seasons on his deal if a trade hadn’t materialized. “No one thought that Russ would get out,” said one source close to the discussions. – via Bill Oram, Shams Charania, Sam Amick @ The Athletic

    That day, a telltale moment occurred: Westbrook received a tip. Not only could the Lakers not break through with the Wizards, but also they were on the cusp of trading Kyle Kuzma and Montrezl Harrell — players whose salaries would be required to execute a Westbrook trade — to the Kings for Hield. “That set Russ off,” one source said. “All he wanted, by any means, was to be a Laker.” – via Bill Oram, Shams Charania, Sam Amick @ The Athletic

    On Sunday, the Lakers reached agreement on a two-year deal with guard Austin Reaves, converting his two-way contract to a standard NBA deal ahead of training camp. The Lakers will have a team option on the second year of Reaves‘ contract, sources said. Reaves, a 6-foot-5 combo guard, has impressed the Lakers throughout the offseason and had a strong showing at James’ minicamp. James and Westbrook even had the rookie conduct some fun-loving errands throughout the weekend in Vegas. – via Bill Oram, Shams Charania, Sam Amick @ The Athletic

    Sources said Pelinka and his front-office group strongly considered executing a sign-and-trade for the 32-year-old DeRozan, giving up Kuzma and Caldwell-Pope in the process, but couldn’t come to consensus terms with the Spurs in free agency or a suitable contract number for DeRozan. What’s more, sources say the DeRozan option never advanced to the point that it was presented to Buss. – via Bill Oram, Shams Charania, Sam Amick @ The Athletic

    Elsewhere on the roster, former All-Star center Andre Drummond’s midseason arrival not only failed to pay off on the court, but also, according to sources, poisoned the well with Gasol, who had joined the Lakers after being promised the starting job, sources said, only to be replaced by Drummond, who was given the same pledge. – via Bill Oram, Shams Charania, Sam Amick @ The Athletic

    However, Gasol’s frustrations with the predicament were well-known throughout the team and he was described by sources close to the team as “disgruntled” with his role and treatment. “There’s no way Gasol wants to be back nor do (the Lakers) want him back,” one source said after the season ended. – via Bill Oram, Shams Charania, Sam Amick @ The Athletic
