Better Coaching, No More Tanking (Last season was more of the latter but not sure how much of the former we can count on. Walton with something to prove this season as much as any Laker player) 3. Rookie Watch (Hoping Lonzo outshines his daddy (ROTY??), and Kuzma finds minutes and makes a push for all rook 2nd team)

READY FOR SEASON!!!

Carraro played an integral role in the Lakers' front office as one of the team's primary salary cap consultants.Carraro also previously served as the general manager for the the Los Angeles D-Fenders—the Lakers' NBA D-League affiliate

 

He really had a hand in turning the D-Fenders around

 

kball, you maybe right. With the new sheriff in town, he was probably told to kick rocks in a nice way.

Yup. Probably received the Golden Handshake and was told to take a hike.

I assume his affiliation with Mitch and his now redundant job description are the reasons for his departure.

Hope it's so Ryan West gets promoted to that position.  Anyway, he was one of the guys who was here since the early 2000s and was also a salary cap master. 


"Bryant had come to rage against the idea that Howard's clownish disposition could overtake the locker room, the Lakers' culture, and had warned Howard that he would never, ever let it happen."

Isn't that what Rob Lowe is supposed to be? Can't have two masters doing the same job. Too many chiefs and not enough indians.

I never heard Glenn Carraro's name till he resigned. Magic and Pelly clearly forcing him out.

You can have input from multiple sources but only one making the decision.
