Lakers’ Assistant Jesse Mermuys Says Michael Beasley One of the Best ISO Scorers

The Los Angeles Lakers certainly seem pleased with the signing of forward Michael Beasley, particularly assistant coach Jesse Mermuys who says that Beasley is one of the best isolation scorers in the league.

“Michael Beasley is one of the hardest guys to guard in the NBA,” Mermuys said, according to NBA.com’s Mike Trudell. “That’s just fact. He’s one of the best 1-on-1 players in the league. With his size and his scoring ability, he’s tough. Having a guy like that on your roster is always beneficial. You always need a bucket getter.”

Mermuys believes that Beasley’s talents will be a tremendous addition to the team.

“There are times guys just don’t have it going, there’s fatigue, there’s travel, there are schedule games that are a monster, there are back to backs,” the coach added. “There are so many things in the NBA where having a bucket getter is really valuable, so having Michael Beasley on your roster is a nice asset.”

Suns Interested in Being 3rd Teal in Lakers, Pelicans Trade

Published

The Los Angeles Lakers have some help in their pursuit of New Orleans Pelicans’ superstar big man Anthony Davis.

Their division rival, the Phoenix Suns.

According to the Los Angeles Times’ Tania Ganguli and Broderick Turner, the Suns have reached out to both the Lakers and the Pelicans and made it clear that they are interested in joining the trade as a third team.

The Suns have their eyes on Lakers point guard Lonzo Ball, who would be a great fit for the young Suns.

It’s not clear what the Suns could offer outside of their 2019 first round pick, which I assume is completely off the table, but they do have other draft picks and young players such as Dragan Bender, to throw into the fray.

Lonzo’s father, LaVar, ruined the appeal of Lonzo for the Pelicans, after he made comments about his desire to see Lonzo in Phoenix instead, recently.

According to Fletcher Mackel of WDSU, the Pelicans “want no part of the Ball circus.”

This would make the inclusion of the Suns in trade talks beneficial, as it gets Ball a clear landing spot, and provides the Lakers with more assets to offer New Orleans.
