Lakers week in review

Taking a look at Lakers news from the past week

In addition to the engagement of guard/forward Nick Young to rapper/model Iggy Azalea, the Lakers had a busy week as the franchise continued to audition players for the team's three picks in the 2015 NBA draft.

Kobe Bryant sat in to watch one workout, a treat for the prospects hoping to make the team.

Most of the players Lakers officials have looked at so far are for the club's 27th and 34th picks.

Point guard Emanuel Mudiay, a prospect for the Lakers' second overall selection, came in on Saturday.

The team also looked at players Rashad Vaughn, Justin Anderson and Delon Wright; forward Cliff Alexander didn't get through his workout, suffering a knee injury.

Meanwhile, the Lakers finalized a real estate purchase for their new headquarters in El Segundo.

Bryant sold his home in Newport Coast.

Former teammate Shaquille O'Neal said he'd pick Bryant over Cleveland Cavaliers star LeBron James.

Bill Plaschke says Coach Byron Scott has earned the right to stay with the team as the Lakers finally received some good fortune with the second pick in the draft.

Another positive development for the Lakers: The NBA's salary cap could leap to $90 million for the 2016-17 season.

Former Laker Metta World Peace was ejected from a game in Italy.
