  • Will begin year as backup
    Vincent will begin the 2023-24 season as the Lakers' backup point guard, Dave McMenamin of ESPN.com reports.

    Advice: Vincent signed a three-year, $33 million contract to join the Lakers this offseason. While he started in 34 of his 68 appearances last year for Miami and was crucial to the Heat's NBA Finals run, D'Angelo Russell is set to be Los Angeles' starting point guard. However, Vincent figures to be one of the team's first options off the bench and provides quality perimeter defense. Rotowire.com Thursday, 8:15 am
  • Set to start at point guard
    Coach Darvin Ham said Thursday that Russell is set to start at point guard for the 2023-24 season, Brad Turner of The Los Angeles Times reports.

    Advice: Russell agreed to a two-year, $37 million contract to stay with the Lakers this offseason. While he did start in all of his 71 appearances last year, the addition of Gabe Vincent brought Russell's role into question. However, it appears the Lakers have confidence in Russell's status as the team's starting point guard after he averaged 17.8 points, 6.2 assists, 3.0 rebounds and 1.0 steals in 32.5 minutes per game during the 2022-23 season.

    Advice: Hampton made 47 NBA appearances between the Magic and Pistons in 2022-23, averaging 6.4 points, 1.9 rebounds and 1.1 assists in 16.0 minutes.

  • Cleared for training camp
    Clippers president of basketball operations Lawrence Frank said Wednesday that George (knee) will be a full participant at training camp, Law Murray of The Athletic reports.

    Advice: George missed the final eight games of the 2022-23 regular season as well as the postseason due to a right knee sprain. He was slated to resume workouts at the end of May, so it's not surprising to see him good to go for training camp. Kawhi Leonard (knee) is also expected to be a full participant, so with their two superstars back in action, the Clippers could work their way back into championship contention. Before the injury, George was playing at an extremely high level, averaging 25.1 points, 6.3 rebounds, 5.0 assists and 1.4 steals in 36.0 minutes across 22 appearances.
