The Lakers were in the middle of a Vegas Pro League game against the Raptors.
It looks like there’s a hiccup with the Bulls and Lakers trade discussions involving Pau Gasol.
ESPN sources say Lakers will delay official signing of Nick Young until AFTER Pau Gasol talks play out. Pau sign-and-trade must happen first

With the potential sign and trade, it looks like Mike Dunleavy Jr. will become a Laker.
The Bulls are working to finalize deal with Pau Gasol, reportedly offering Mike Dunleavy + non-guaranteed contracts: http://t.co/2RQwk4f8fj

Pau may be a Chicago Bull by the end of today. Considering the amount of activity with the Laker offices the past couple of days, they’ll be looking to get this done. The Lakers may lose Nick Young in the process, but there may be something in the works to upgrade talent or increase cap flexibility for 2015 or 2016.
