Eye on Basketball Podcast: Lakers and Kings offseason reports

By Zach Harper | NBA writer

We've got two episodes in one podcast after taking a break on Wednesday. Today, Matt Moore and I are discussing the offseasons of the Los Angeles Lakers and Sacramento Kings. In the first episode, we talk about what happened with the Lakers and their attempts to keep Dwight Howard this summer. It didn't work out, which leaves them in a precarious situation moving forward. Do they have a realistic shot at LeBron James or Carmelo Anthony next summer? How big of a paycut should Kobe Bryant take to accommodate real help? Do they still have a good shot at the playoffs this season? And when does Kobe Bryant come back to play?

For the Kings' episode, it's all about a new regime change with them and a year in transition. With Pete D'Alessandro taking over the front office and Vivek Ranadivé as the new primary owner, the Kings finally have a breath of fresh air flowing throughout the organization. But where does that leave their roster? Are there too many guards? Would you give DeMarcus Cousins the max contract he desires? How many weird lineups can they employ? Is Travis Outlaw really signed for the next two seasons?

We discuss all of this, plus my infatuation with Jimmer Fredette, the Lakers' 9/11 tweet, and Michael Beasley to the .
