Lakers worked out three prominent players ahead.

Los Angeles Lakers are actively surveying the landscape to eventually fill out the roster with more depth. And have done so in recently working out Isaiah Thomas, Darren Collison and Mike James, league sources told Yahoo Sports.

A signing is not imminent, sources said. Lakers could also elect to bring players into training camp to fight for the last few roster spots.

The Lakers, who have 12 players under guaranteed contracts, will go into the 2021-22 season carrying 14 players. In order to maintain flexibility, sources said. Each team can carry a maximum of 15 players and two two-way players.

A third point guard is a priority, sources said, along with potentially adding another wing.

The Lakers’ quest to defend their championship from a year ago fell short as injuries to Anthony Davis and LeBron.James were just too much to overcome in the opening-round playoff series against the Phoenix Suns. With the world still adapting to COVID-19 and the new protocols that surface because of it. Roster depth is of serious importance for the Lakers.

With the intention of signing two more players and leaving a roster spot open. It means Jared Dudley’s two-year tenure with the organization will likely come to an end.

Thomas reportedly worked out with Lakers stars LeBron James and Russell Westbrook in Los Angeles on Tuesday.

Lakers’ interest in a potential reunion with Thomas, who played 17 games for the purple and gold during the 2017-18 campaign, was first reported last week.

A two-time All-Star with the Boston Celtics, Thomas once finished in the top five in MVP voting.

However, the 5-foot-9 floor general has failed to play in more than 40 games. In any of the last four seasons due to a lingering hip injury.

Charles Leclerc told what he is lacking compared to Verstappen

Damon Hill believes that Charles Leclerc is lacking the confidence that Max Verstappen has possessed since he entered F1 as a teenager.

Despite Ferrari enjoying a strong start to the 2022 season, Leclerc’s championship hopes have dwindled as the year has progressed, with Verstappen now 116 points ahead of the Monegasque at the top of the standings.

Former Scuderia boss Jean Todt – whose son, Nicolas, is Leclerc’s manager – recently suggested in an interview with Italian publication Gazetta dello Sport that the 24-year-old driver “still lacks something”.

In terms of what this could be, Hill thinks that Leclerc’s “anxiety” differs greatly to Verstappen’s approach.

“I think it is that sense of confidence that Max has [that Leclerc lacks],” Hill told the F1 Nation podcast.

“The first time we interviewed [Verstappen], he came on Sky [Sports] and [he was a] 17-year-old guy, and he just knew how to handle himself. He just had so much confidence. It was utterly unbelievable for a 17-year-old.

“Charles is a very charming, intelligent kid, but he’s anxious. He’s got an anxiety there.”

Hill believes that Leclerc’s tendency to admit to mistakes differs from some other drivers.

“The first time I heard him say, ‘I’m really sorry, guys, that was all my fault’, I just thought, ‘I can’t imagine Michael Schumacher saying that ever!'” the 1996 World Champion added.

Verstappen could arguably be feeling a sense of pressure now that his chances of winning the World Championship are increasing; on paper, there is a possibility that the Dutchman could clinch his second title at the Singapore Grand Prix.

Despite this, Hill does not expect this to add any extra weight to the Red Bull driver’s shoulders.

“If you ask him a question about [if he is] worried about something, he goes, ‘No, I don’t think it’s a problem, it’ll work out, it’ll be what it is’,” Hill said.

“His philosophy is perfectly adapted now to coping with the pressure of Formula 1. You can put it out of your mind – that is the tactic. That is what every sportsman has to do.

“You cannot get ahead of yourself. You’ve got to do the job you’re there to do, and he reiterates that every time you interview him.

“Also he’s got the [first] one in the bag. If it was his first [title], then there would be some tension, I think.”

Max Verstappen arrives in Singapore without thinking that he can be proclaimed two-time Formula 1 world champion this weekend. The Red Bull man maintains that he is not going to change his approach for this race and will go one by one during these last six. Returning to the streets of Marina Bay will be an interesting challenge for him and he is looking forward to racing again.

Verstappen will have his first match point in Singapore to proclaim himself Formula 1 world champion in 2022 . The one from the Netherlands needs a new victory and wait for his two closest pursuers, but it really is not something that he has in mind. He, personally, thinks about the challenge that this weekend represents and stresses that qualifying will be very important.

“We haven’t been to Singapore for a while so it will be interesting to see how the circuit has developed. It’s one of the best races of the year and a great place to be. The qualifying lap is important and we have to focus on that.” During the race, you have to be prepared for everything with the safety cars”, commented Verstappen in the Red Bull preview for the Singapore GP.

“In general, it is a challenging circuit, the humidity is hard on the body and it is very difficult to make a perfect lap. The corners are very narrow and the walls are also close. I  don’t really think about the World Championship , I just want to have an end of positive week and go race by race, there is no rush “, he added.

On the other hand, Sergio Pérez is happy to return to Singapore, where he will race for the first time as a Red Bull driver . The Mexican has not been at his best level in recent races, but he is confident of taking a step forward this weekend and being closer to his teammate.

“It’s great to be back in Singapore, the circuit is very demanding both physically and mentally . It’s been good to have this break after the treble and now we’re looking forward to the last six races of the season. It will be very important to do everything right and add up all the points that we can. We have analyzed what happened in the last races and we want to return to the circuit”, Pérez expressed to close.

RAFA NADAL’S SISTER TELLS HOW MERY PERELLÓ IS DOING – News from the hospital

The tennis player Rafa Nadal  will become a father in October 2022 or, at the latest, in November, according to sources from his environment in conversation with Diario de Mallorca. This medium reported at the time that Mery Perelló , the athlete’s wife, had had to be admitted to the hospital due to complications in her pregnancy, which required surgical intervention. To this day, Mery remains in absolute rest and we know how she is. 

The magazine Hello! has now revealed that the baby the couple is expecting will be a boy, although the Nadal family prefers not to comment at all on this issue. However, the sister of the manacorí, Maribel Nadal, who attended an awards ceremony presided over by Queen Letizia on behalf of the tennis player’s foundation, was approached in the middle of the street by reporters who wanted to know more details about the special moment that Nadal and Mery, also known as Xisca, live among their loved ones. How’s he doing?

Maribel did not want to enter the game, but confirmed that both are “very well” in the final stretch of pregnancy. With a broad smile, the board limited itself to confirming that everything is going according to plan and that the whole family is very excited about the imminent arrival of the new member of the clan.

Nadal himself acknowledged, after being eliminated in the round of 16 of the US Open, that he had gone through a period of great nervousness, being so far from his wife during her stay in the medical center (and a possible childbirth ).premature), and that he needed to fully focus on such an important stage of his personal and family life. That did not prevent, however, the Spaniard from going to London to play the last match in the Swiss’s career with Roger Federer, a very emotional meeting in which the two friends burst into tears during the tribute that took place in the O2 pavilion Arena of the British capital.
