Lakers sign center

The Lakers today signed center Larry Turner, who played with their summer-league team. Turner is 6-foot-11 and averaged 5.8 points and 6.1 rebounds during his senior season at Tennessee State. Turner also averaged 7.4 points and 5.2 rebounds during the summer league in Las Vegas.

Jermaine Loves L.A.

While at a charity basketball game in Los Angeles this weekend, Jermaine O’Neal told that he wants to be a Laker.
“I would welcome a trade to the Lakers,” O’Neal told “Indiana has given me the opportunity to establish myself as a really good player in this league, but they’re into rebuilding and going really young, and I’m just not in a position physically to go through another five to six years with a lot of losses and a lot of down time.”

The full story is available here. As a follow-up, O’Neal’s agent, Arn Tellem, told The Associated Press that O’Neal hasn’t requested a trade to the Lakers.

Looks like it’s time to fire up those trade rumors again…
