The Lakers have reportedly given up on trying to trade Luol Deng.
Mitch Kupchak, the Lakers' former GM, awarded Deng a four-year, $72 million contract on his way out there door, and unsurprisingly it's been tough for the Lakers to find anyone willing to deal with this disastrous deal for another two years. That said, the Lakers do need to get Deng off the books prior to free agency in 2018 if they want to have the cap space to be able to pursue the marquee guys, so he will likely be waived at some point this season.

Luke Walton said he's considering throwing Kyle Kuzma into the starting lineup for the first two games of the season while Kentavious Caldwell-Pope serves his suspension.

Josh Hart (Achilles), Jordan Clarkson, Corey Brewer, Luol Deng and Kuzma are all being considered by Walton as potential starters sans KCP, but if Kuzma gets the starting nod, he'd be someone to consider as a potential punt play in daily leagues.

Timofey Mozgov will come off the bench for Monday's game against the Knicks, with Tarik Black drawing the start.

Luke Walton said he talked to both Mitch Kupchak and Jim Buss about shifting Mozgov and Luol Deng to the second unit in order to prioritize the development of Brandon Ingram and Ivica Zubac, and they both got behind the decision. Mozgov looks like he might be the third-string center in Los Angeles now, so there's no reason to own him in any league.

Brandon Ingram will reportedly move into the starting five for Monday's game against the Knicks.

It's currently unclear who he will be replacing, but the most likely go to go to the second unit would be Luol Deng. Ingram has been hit-or-miss this season, but with a favorable matchup in what should be an uptempo game against New York, he's someone to consider throwing out there as a low-budget option in daily leagues. Deng has been trending in the wrong direction for a while now, and his value will only get worse in a reserve role.

Brandon Ingram failed to score in 19 minutes vs. Portland, going 0-of-5 from the field with four rebounds, two assists, one block and two turnovers.

Starting SF Luol Deng wasn't much better, scoring four points on 2-of-7 shooting, but that's small consolation for Ingram's owners. The rookie came in averaging 11.0 points on 42.7 percent shooting in January, a big step up from his numbers in November and December, but that's not saying much. He's worth stashing if you can afford to be patient.
