Back to work

Back in town after a couple of weeks off. Don’t expect much news for the next little while. There might be a few minor signings as the Lakers pad their roster for training camp, but there won’t be much in the way of headline-grabbing moves. All the big deals are done.
Keep an eye on Kobe Bryant during the Olympics to see if his damaged right pinky is still troubling him. He put off surgery to help the Lakers reach the NBA Finals and to aid Team USA in Beijing. Surgery might delay him a bit for training camp. Expect more news on that subject later this month.
