The Los Angeles Lakers have been very quiet at the NBA trade deadline. As you can imagine, LeBron James has some thoughts on the team’s inaction.

Speaking to the media this week, LeBron admitted that he can see the trade deadline starting to affect the team. He said that it’s like there’s a “fog” in the air for them.

“Obviously, this is something that’s weighing on this group that we’re all trying to get through. Almost feels like it’s a fog, just a fog in the air,” LeBron said.

There have been rumors that the Lakers could be eyeing reinforcements at the deadline. But nothing has materialized as of yet.

The Los Angeles Lakers have shown a willingness to move on from players. In January they traded Rajon Rondo to the Cleveland Cavaliers.

But with the Lakers sitting at 26-30, ninth in

It appears as though Chicago Bears wide receiver Allen Robinson is down to two options: Play the 2021 season under the $17.8 million franchise tag or hold out. 

According to the NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport, the Bears and Robinson “are not expected to reach a long-term extension.”
