The Los Angeles Lakers were off to an 8-28 start heading into their nationally televised Thursday night showdown with the Sacramento Kings. Before the game, Time Warner Cable Sportsnet host Chris McGee’s interviewed Los Angeles Lakers general manager Mitch Kupchak, and the longtime Lakers’ executive gave a few details on the team’s plans moving forward.
“There was a flurry of phone calls a couple of weeks ago, most of which i initiated,” said Kupchak, who explained the Lakers “have to be careful with what we do. Most of the teams that would have interest in our players would have interest in our young players and we covet our young players pretty highly right now. So it would be tough for us to move a young player.”
As far as any fans hoping for a big trade to fix the Lakers’ problems in the middle of the season, Kupchak quashed that idea, telling McGee “I suspect that there will be more activity going forward, but I wouldn’t suspect a blockbuster deal.”

Minnesota Timberwolves guard Jamal Crawford has declined his $4.5 million player option for next season and will become a free agent, league sources told Yahoo Sports.

Crawford, a three-time Sixth Man of the Year, will become one of the top reserve scorers on the open market after facing Monday’s deadline to decide on his option.

In his 18th NBA season, Crawford averaged 10.3 points and 20.7 minutes in 80 contests, marking his 16th consecutive year that he scored in double figures per game. He joined the Timberwolves on a two-year contract last offseason and served as a veteran leader for the franchise’s first playoff season since 2004.
