Steve Nash is "100 percent healthy" right now. He's not having nerve pain for the first time in a long time.

It's nice to hear that the 40 year old guard is healthy. His $10 million salary this season is part of the handcuff that keeps the Lakers from being able to update their roster. Hopefully, for Lakers fans, Nash can stay uninjured this season. But don't count on a statistical resurgence from the aging ballplayer, he has played in 65 games over the last two seasons.

100 percent healthy for a 40-year-old and a 22-year-old are two completely different things. Nash still has the ability to play at a high level, but you cannot expect him to be anything close to what he was when he played in Phoenix.

Lakers contact Robert Horry about becoming an assistant coach.

New head coach Byron Scott has repeatedly talked about bringing a winning culture back to L.A. and Horry, who has won championships with the Lakers before, knows all about it. Not only was he a big reason behind Lakers championships during his tenure, but he's got a strong fondness for both the city and his time spent on the team. It would definitely make for a nice coaching staff worthy of the players' respect.

Steve Nash confirmed this will be his last NBA season.

The Lakers really did nothing this offseason of note which is surprising. It looks like Steve Nash will play out the final year of his contract worth $9.7 million wearing the purple and gold and it will also be his last in the NBA as a whole. He has average 14.3 points and 8.5 rebounds a game for his career.

The Lakers have re-signed Xavier Henry.

The 23 year old forward had a very good year last season, with career highs in points (10.0), rebounds (2.7), assists (1.2) and steals (1) in just 21.1 minutes over 43 games and will look to improve upon it next season.

Ryan Kelly's new two-year deal with the Lakers is for $1,650,000 in 2014-15 and $1,724,250 in 2015-16.

Kelly was a part-time starter for the Lakers during his rookie season, but expect him to be a bench player this season, even with the roster still in flux. He did average 8.0 points and 3.7 rebounds per game, while also averaging 22.2 minutes a game.

The Lakers officially announce the signing of forward Ryan Kelly.

There were times last season where Kelly played some really good basketball, which is what teams are looking for out of a rookie. It is hard to see him making a positive impact since the Lakers have a long jam at the power forward spot with Carlos Boozer, Jordan Hill, and Ed Davis all being signed this offseason.

Lakers officially sign Nick Young to four-year, $21.5 million deal.

The Lakers continue their string of signing a really bad player to a big money contract. The shooting guard can shoot the ball really well..at times, but literally does nothing else remotely average on the basketball court. Kobe Bryant is going to hate playing alongside Young, who has never seen a shot opportunity he doesn't like.
