Green -- Kawhi wanted 'his own route,' not Lakers

Ohm Youngmisuk has covered the Giants, Jets and the National Football League since 2006. Green signed a two-year, $30 million deal with Los Angeles on Saturday.

Green and Leonard were traded together from San Antonio to Toronto last summer. I checked in with [Leonard] all the time. "Because once the decision was made, we had all of our chess pieces on the board to make our moves and close".

Here's one thing you can bank on: AD will be on the court when it counts, and to use Davis's words, he'll "just play". If he is going to come back from it, now is the time. The superstar big man, who has only won one playoff series in his National Basketball Association career, wants to do whatever it takes to win an National Basketball Association championship with the Lakers.

After seven individually great but frustrating seasons with the New Orleans Pelicans, Anthony Davis is now officially a member of the Los Angeles Lakers.

"I think the conversations we have with our players, we want to keep those private just because they are important", Pelinka said. This could help offer the Lakers a bit of lineup flexibility as they would ideally like to try and maximize budding star - and fellow forward - Kyle Kuzma's role alongside Anthony Davis and James.

It was a girls' day out for Meghan Markle , Kate Middleton and sister Pippa Middleton at the Wimbledon women's final on Saturday. Olympia made a surprise appearance during her mother's quarter-final post-match conference earlier in the Championships.

Don't we have enough drama dominating the news cycle both here and elsewhere?

"It played a big part because I know LeBron makes everybody better".

After Kawhi Leonard chose to forego the Los Angeles Lakers for the Los Angeles Clippers, the Lakers were left in a scramble needing to add pieces with the cap space that was being reserved for Leonard.

"I think all of it was a shock to me", Green said. I think the year that he had and what those fans brought this season and everything, it was hard for him to turn it down and leave Toronto. You never know, it could be two teams in L.A. playing against each other [in the playoffs] which we wouldn't have to travel anywhere. "For us, anything short of a championship is not success".
