Kupchak Will Continue To Pursue Trades, Looking To Hit 'Home Run'
Mitch Kupchak said he would continue to pursue trades during the offseason.
"We'll try to hit a home run,” he said. “The draft is the beginning of the offseason. You continue to pursue trade possibilities and then (Saturday), you pursue trades and free agency."
Kupchak believes the Lakers can still contend for the title.
"I think if this group is kept intact, and we've got some work to do with existing free agents, I don't see why we can't be in the hunt next year," he said. "All you want in this league is a chance to be in the hunt. If you're one of five or six teams at the end of the year that have that feeling, that, 'Yeah, we can do this. We're playing our best basketball.' That's all you can hope for."
