Rob Pelinka: Next Season Not a ‘rebuilding year’


During his opening statement while introducing new center Brook Lopez on Wednesday, Los Angeles Lakers general manager Rob Pelinka made a comment that raised eyebrows.

“We don’t see next year at all as a rebuilding year,” Pelinka said at the team’s practice facility. “We see it as a Lakers year. A lot of that is going to be centered around [Lopez] and what he stands for and what we know he’ll give this organization.”
