[Feigen] Ariza said Pelinka "will be unbelievable (as a GM). He knows basketball. He has a really,really good eye for talent. He knows tm chemistry."

 

 

 

[Feigen] Eric Gordon: "(Pelinka) is going to be the GM of the Lakers. He's going to be good. I expect nothing but good things. He knows basketball. All of us, me, James and Trevor, we're kind of surprised. He said it happened quickly."

 

 

[Wojnarowski] Pelinka's been prominent agent for years, holds strong relationships w/ league execs, engineered deals, recruiting in deep '17 draft class.

I think that's going to be the case. He's likely going to do everything a GM does, but without the title. There's no way they can get rid of him any time soon given his reputation around the league, and the inexperience of both Magic and Pelinka.

Im more worried he leaves when someone offers him a GM job. He's turned down an offer before.

Can anyone chime in on what you think will happen with Palinka's clients? Wouldn't there be some sort of conflict of interest or some sort of anti-steering rule the NBA has in place that will come into question?

They will just go to new agents. Players change agents all the time.

We really need to bring Laker emojis back to this site.

 

Those were the days.

Kobe Pushed Hard For Lakers-Pelinka Partnership

Not surprising in the least, but I'm told Kobe was pushing hard for this Rob Pelinka-Lakers partnership. The Kobe influence will be felt.

Sources: Pelinka turning his agency -- Landmark Sports -- over to his employees, including Brandon Rosenthal, Diana Day and Erika Williams.

 

One thing to note. Rob just left a lot of money on the table. He's taking a massive paycut being a GM.

Good break down from Lakers Film Room, and essentially confirms what I had already thought AND hoped for:


http://lakerfilmroom...all-operations/

 

So that was very well written and re-assuring but the funny thing about it is this is literally no different than what was happening already.

 

The only difference now is Magic is the face of our "rebrand" while we continue the same course as before.

 

I'm actually very happy though. It seems we're not moving from the same plan as before, but at the end of the day this is all more a PR move than anything.

Pelinka turning Landmark Sports to employees in short-term - and sale could come in longer-term. Staff will handle players in short-term.

 

Probably a good idea. Things aren't exactly stable here in laker land. Best to make sure everything works out until you sell your empire.

Hopefully being the lead scout and evaluating the pieces we need on the team is more than enough for Ryan while the negotiating is  done by Pelinka.

 

This could be a very good marriage.
