Report: LeBron James, Darvin Ham, Rob Pelinka had joint meeting to discuss upcoming season

Reports from last week noted that LeBron James met with the Lakers on the first day the two sides could officially negotiate a contract extension (because surely they wouldn’t have done that sooner). On Monday, new details about the meeting emerged and, surprisingly, a contract extension appears to have been a topic on the backburner from both sides.

Report: Darvin Ham will have more power to bench Russell Westbrook late in games this season

During the 2021-22 NBA season, one of the bigger issues that existed for the Los Angeles Lakers was the uncertainty of how to utilize point guard Russell Westbrook. As part of that dilemma, there seemed to be a fair amount of contention when it came to whether or not Westbrook belonged on the court in crunch time. Though Westbrook surely sees himself as a closer, he often made mistakes last season that cost the Lakers at the end of close contests.

Lakers coach Darvin Ham remains positive about his team amid trade rumors: 'We love everyone on our roster'

It's no secret that the Los Angeles Lakers have been trying to trade Russell Westbrook, dating back to the trade deadline of last season. His lone season in purple and gold yielded disappointing results, both from a player perspective for Westbrook, who struggled to fit into a new role with the Lakers, and from a team viewpoint, as L.A. missed the playoffs with a 33-49 record.
