Nwaba, 24, made 20 appearances (two starts) for the Lakers in the 2016-17 season, averaging 6.0 points and 3.2 rebounds in 19.9 minutes per contest. He signed two 10-day contracts with the team last season before being signed for the remainder of the year March 21. His chances of making the team this offseason were always slim, especially after the Lakers drafted guards Lonzo Ball and Josh Hart and reportedly signed Kentavious Caldwell-Pope to a one-year, $18 million deal Tuesday night, per Brian Windhorst of ESPN.com. The Lakers also reportedly remain interested in signing Rajon Rondo, per Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN. With Jordan Clarkson already on the roster, Nwaba would have been battling with Hart to be third on the shooting guard depth chart. B/R's Eric Pincus broke down more of the context for Nwaba's release:  All of the above factors ultimately made Nwaba expendable in L.A. http://los-lunas.ipub.us/news/1176547-lakers-news-david-nwaba-waived-los-angeles Wed, 12 2017 16:50:06 GMT http://los-lunas.ipub.us/news/1176547-lakers-news-david-nwaba-waived-los-angeles Los Angeles is all but guaranteed to get the Olympic Games. The question is when, 2024 or 2028? Los Angeles is all but guaranteed to host the Summer Games for a third time after Olympic leaders made the unusual decision Tuesday to name two winners in the bid race between L.A. and Paris, giving 2024 to one city and 2028 to the other. After the historic vote by International Olympic Committee... http://los-lunas.ipub.us/news/1174997-los-angeles-all-guaranteed-get-olympic-games-question-when-2 Wed, 12 2017 01:50:00 GMT http://los-lunas.ipub.us/news/1174997-los-angeles-all-guaranteed-get-olympic-games-question-when-2 Lakers Rumors: Rajon Rondo Met with Magic Johnson in Los Angeles on Tuesday Rajon Rondo met Tuesday with Los Angeles Lakers president of basketball operations Magic Johnson as the free-agent point guard continues to explore his options on the open market, according to ESPN.com's Adrian Wojnarowski. On June 2, ESPN.com's Ramona Shelburne reported the Lakers would give "strong consideration" to signing Rondo. Rondo, 31, was waived by the Chicago Bulls shortly before the start of free agency, and he immediately became an intriguing potential addition for several teams in need of a veteran leader. As ESPN.com's Ian Begley noted, "young players in Sacramento and Chicago have raved about Rondo's mentorship and his ability to assist with player development." Rondo's also still a capable contributor, as his time with the Bulls proved. In 69 appearances during the 2016-17 season, he averaged 7.8 points, 6.7 assists, 5.1 rebounds and 1.4 steals per game while shooting 40.8 percent from the field and a career-high 37.6 percent from three. Rondo also averaged a robust 11.5 points, 10.0 dimes and 8.5 boards in two playoff games against the Boston Celtics before he missed the remainder of the postseason with a broken thumb. Aside from Rondo, the Lakers also met with Kentavious Caldwell-Pope on Tuesday, according to ESPN.com's Brian Windhorst. The 24-year-old became an unrestricted free agent Friday when the Detroit Pistons renounced his rights, and Wojnarowski reported at the time that the Lakers were interested in signing him to a "one-year balloon deal," which would preserve their salary cap flexibility. http://los-lunas.ipub.us/news/1174783-lakers-rumors-rajon-rondo-met-magic-johnson-los-angeles-tues Tue, 11 2017 22:45:27 GMT http://los-lunas.ipub.us/news/1174783-lakers-rumors-rajon-rondo-met-magic-johnson-los-angeles-tues Sports Illustrated hosting Fashionable 50 celebration event in Los Angeles Sports Illustrated will celebrate the launch of its second annual Fashionable 50 list in Los Angeles on July 18. http://los-lunas.ipub.us/news/1174327-sports-illustrated-hosting-fashionable-50-celebration-event Tue, 11 2017 19:16:37 GMT http://los-lunas.ipub.us/news/1174327-sports-illustrated-hosting-fashionable-50-celebration-event IOC Expects To Award Paris And Los Angeles 2024 And 2028 Olympics Paris and Los Angeles are the only remaining contestants for 2024 after four other cities dropped out. The committee's decision means the 2024 loser can avoid mounting an arduous new bid for 2028. http://los-lunas.ipub.us/news/1174225-ioc-expects-award-paris-and-los-angeles-2024-and-2028-olympi Tue, 11 2017 20:12:00 GMT http://los-lunas.ipub.us/news/1174225-ioc-expects-award-paris-and-los-angeles-2024-and-2028-olympi Paris Los Angeles Could Host The 2024 2028 Olympics If they can agree who goes first, Paris and Los Angeles will be awarded the 2024 and 2028 Olympics.International Olympic Committee members voted unanimously to seek a consensus three-way deal between the two bid cities and the committee's executive board. Talks will open with Paris widely seen as the favorite for 2024. If a deal falls through, only the 2024 hosting rights will be voted on when the IOC meets on September 13 in Lima, Peru.However, an agreement seemed assured by the reaction of the two mayors. Eric Garcetti of Los Angeles and Anne Hidalgo of Paris emerged on stage holding hands to welcome the decision.A deal is also likely because a head-to-head fight to host the 2024 games would create a loser that is unlikely to return four years later for a new 2028 bid contest."Both of us will find it more and more difficult to convince cities — whether it's Paris, Los Angeles, or other American cities — to really go into this process if one of us gets turned down," Garcetti said in a news conference on Tuesday.The mayors were united on stage by IOC President Thomas Bach, who raised an arm of each in a shared gesture of triumph. A deal to make both cities winners would fulfill a strategy that Bach set in motion last December to help safeguard a stable future for the signature Olympic event."With Los Angeles and Paris, there are two fantastic cities from countries with a profound Olympic history," Bach said.The IOC approved the expected double award after hearing the cities presented their 2024 hosting plans at a conference center in the Olympics' capital city, Lausanne. Both cities used 45 minutes of videos and speeches, including one with French President Emmanuel Macron promoting the Paris cause, in a closed-door session with IOC members to explain how they would host the 2024 Olympics.At separate news conferences, the mayors said they could work toward a deal."We look forward to working together, maybe not in competition but collaboration with Paris," Garcetti said after his city's bid officials opened the campaign event.Both mayors have long touted their good relations on other issues, such as climate change."We are all at the disposition and by the side of the IOC which was right to ask itself this question," Hidalgo said at the Paris news conference, citing her friendship with Garcetti as potentially a "key element."The dual award can give the IOC a decade of stability with two world-class cities touting financially secure bids. L.A. plans to use only existing venues with zero risk of white elephants. This follows years of overspending by Olympic hosts and a series of political defeats that have sunk the campaigns of potential candidates.It also avoids inflicting a third recent defeat on Paris — which lost with bids for the 2008 and 2012 Olympics — and the United States. New York and Chicago both lost heavily for 2012 and 2016, respectively.Those losses deepened a rift between the U.S. Olympic Committee and the Swiss-based IOC that L.A. 2024 and a new team of American officials have worked hard to heal.Paris also failed with a 1992 bid and pinned its hopes on hosting in 2024, exactly 100 years after its previous Summer Games."We lost three times, we don't want to lose a fourth one," Macron said at the news conference. "I'm here to convey the message that there's a strong unity to back this candidacy."Minutes after Macron spoke, U.S. President Donald Trump wrote on Twitter: "Working hard to get the Olympics for the United States (L.A.). Stay tuned!"Working hard to get the Olympics for the United States (L.A.). Stay tuned!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) July 11, 2017 Garcetti said the Olympic movement "can't afford to lose the United States."The IOC's most valuable TV rights deal is with NBC and several of its top-tier sponsors are American. Still, a 2028 Olympics in Southern California could be the first American-hosted games since 1996 in Atlanta.Related Video:Like what you see?
