The trade deadline is nearly upon us, so the LN Pod is joined this week by Alex Kennedy, who explains how negotiations work and whether or not this will be an active deadline. We also discuss the Lakers' strategy at the deadline and who is the most likely to be traded, plus how the injury to DeMarcus Cousins will impact trade talks.
The Lakers are on a win streak despite the absence of Lonzo Ball, and Jordan Clarkson is suddenly unstoppable. We talk about how that impacts plans for the trade deadline, plus discuss four guys rumored to be on the block and whether or not they are fits for LA.
The Lakers are on a four-game winning streak AND just signed the son of an NBA Hall of Famer. Plus, who should be on the trade block, and what's going on with Lonzo Ball's knee and Brandon Ingram's ankle?
The Lakers losing streak is finally over! We talk about the win, plus break down the team's plans for this summer. Are all of their eggs in one basket? Also, did LaVar Ball cross a line with Luke Walton AGAIN?
Larry Nance Jr. stops by to chat about Paul George, how the upcoming trade deadline is impacting the team, his favorite dunks, and much more. Then, we break down the George-to-LA talk and throw out some hypothetical trade scenarios.
The Los Angeles Lakers have a plan to return the team to the top of the NBA mountain and it revolves around having enough money for two max free agents, so we bring in cap expert Eric Pincus to discuss what the team may do at the trade deadline and next summer. Plus, what will happen with Julius Randle, and Eric has an outside-the-box idea to deal with the contract of Luol Deng.
It's a Christmas miracle! The Lakers picked up a huge win over the Houston Rockets, so we discuss the victory and then dive into our Christmas mailbag to cover trades, the young talent, and much more.
