Lakers' Kupchak says PG Clarkson reminds him of Russell Westbrook
by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer

Lakers point guard Jordan Clarkson is riding high as of late. He was recently named to the NBA's All-Rookie First Team and now his general manager Mitch Kupchak is comparing him to the Thunder's Russell Westbrook, per ESPN.com.

"If there’s a player in the league that plays like him, it’s Russell Westbrook," Kupchak said. "Now, I’m not saying for a second that Jordan Clarkson is the next Russell Westbrook, but he’s that kind of a ball-handling guard."

The Lakers drafted Clarkson with the 46th pick in the 2014 draft. An injury-riddled roster helped Clarkson gain significant playing time.

In 38 games as a starter, Clarkson averaged 15.8 points, 5 assists and 4.2 rebounds per game.

Lakers GM: Kobe 'has indicated to me that this is it'
by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer

Lakers general manager Mitch Kupchak said that the upcoming 2015-16 season will be the last for perennial All-Star Kobe Bryant, per ESPN.com.

"He has indicated to me that this is it," Kupchak said.

Bryant, who will be 37 years old when the season begins, is entering the final year of a two-year, $48.5 million dollar extension with the team.

Bryant later took to Twitter to deny he had made any decision.

"I think first and foremost, he's on the last year of a deal," Kupchak said. "There have been no discussions about anything going forward. I don't think there will be."

Kupchak said that if anything changes and Bryant wants to continue playing past his current contract, negotiations can be had. Bryant's last three seasons have been cut short because of injury. Last season, he was limited to 35 games before suffering a season-ending shoulder injury.

"A year from now, if there's something different to discuss, then it will be discussed then," Kupchak said. "I talk to him from time to time ... and he is recovering. He's running. He's getting movement and strength in the shoulder. We expect a full recovery, but yeah, he's much closer to the end than to the beginning."

Lakers' Clarkson looks to improve after making All-Rookie first team
by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer

Lakers point guard Jordan Clarkson is back in the gym after being named to the NBA's All-Rookie first team, according to L.A. Daily News.

Lakers general manager Mitch Kupchak delivered the good news Monday to Clarkson, who took three weeks off after the season before resuming workouts.

"It was a good feeling and it's a good accomplishment. But at the same time, I have to put it behind me," Clarkson said in a phone interview. "I still have a lot to prove. I have to keep working. I have a lot of things I got to get better at. I have to keep grinding. This is just the beginning."

Clarkson -- the 46th pick in the 2014 draft -- averaged 15.8 points, five assists and 4.2 rebounds per game in his 38 games as a starter.
