The decision was made, the LA Lakers stood pat at the trade deadline and coach Darvin Ham won't have a significant new player, except for any movement at the buyout market tonight's game against the Denver Nuggets will be a good test of how the team is doing at this point in the campaign.

Darvin Ham spoke on how he measures tonight's game vs. Nuggets: "I'm looking at it as more of a progress report for us." The team currently has a 3-game winning streak and is looking to increase it against one of the best squads in the Western Conference and the NBA's reigning champions.

After the Lakers didn't make a move at the NBA's trade deadline, coach Darvin Ham spoke on the current roster: "We've had our ups and downs, but I have all the confidence in the world with all the people in the locker room."

Lakers GM Rob Pelinka on the decision to stay put at the trade deadline: "You can't buy a house that's not for sale... The right move wasn't there. Sometimes no move is better than an unwise move."

Rob Pelinka on his approach to the buyout market: “Two things we’re looking at. [One] is a ball-handling guard. We signed Gabe Vincent and he’s played five games. So that would be top of the list…The best available player would be next.”
