Lakers Out of D-Will Sweepstakes?

In an interview with the Los Angeles Times, Lakers executive Jim Buss says he plans no major moves this summer, apparently meaning L.A. is not planning to trade for Deron Williams.

No moves?

"We will try to sign Sessions when the rules allow beginning in July," he says. "And improve the bench."

No major free-agent signings, no blockbuster trades?

"No," he says.

Buss, son of principal owner Jerry Buss and the man now in charge specifically said the team has no plans to trade Pau Gasol, who's been rumored as a trade piece in a deal for D-Will. "No," he says. "I think changes are going to be made moving Pau lower to the basket. We can improve that way with a change in coaching strategy rather than a change in personnel."
