In weighing both sides, Hurley told ESPN that the Lakers made a “compelling case” and presented a “compelling vision,” but that he is also proud of what he’s built with the Huskies. Hurley is coming off back-to-back NCAA championships with UConn.

Hurley traveled to L.A. on Thursday and met with the Lakers on Friday to discuss a potential deal before returning to the East Coast on Saturday, ESPN reported. He also told ESPN that he was “extremely impressed” with Lakers VP and GM Rob Pelinka and owner Jeanie Buss, who are reportedly offering a massive contract that would keep Hurley in Los Angeles long term.

If Hurley chooses to go to the NBA, he will replace Darvin Ham, who was fired by the Lakers after just two seasons following a first-round playoff elimination.

The Lakers won the NBA championship in 2020 in the Orlando bubble, but have struggled since, losing in the first round of the playoffs twice and missing the postseason entirely in 2022. The Lakers hope that a champion like Hurley will provide a spark that will push the team to a deep postseason run next season.

Caitlin Clark was reportedly left off Team USA’s roster for the upcoming Paris Olympics, drawing impassioned responses from those who disagree and agree with the decision.

Clark, whose nascent tenure as a burgeoning WNBA star has served as a lightning rod at the slightest hint of controversy, addressed the decision on Sunday. As usual, she opted to stay above the fray. Clark spoke with reporters Sunday afternoon from Indiana Fever practice and was immediately asked about her reaction to being left off the roster.

When it comes to not making the Olympic team, Caitlin Clark has nothing but praise for the 12 who made it: “it’s the toughest team to make.”

I’m excited for the girls that are on the team,” she said. “I know it’s the most competitive team in the world, and I knew it could’ve gone either way of me being on the team, me not being on the team. I’m excited for them. I’m going to be rooting them on to win gold.”Yahoo Sports

She was then asked about her “level of disappointment” for being left off the roster.

“Honestly, no disappointment,” Clark said. “I think it just gives you something to work for. It’s a dream. Hopefully one day I can be there. I think it’s just a little more motivation. You remember that, and hopefully in four years when four years comes back around, I can be there.”

Clark added that she appreciated a call from USA Basketball officials to let her know about the decision and that she can make the most of the time off this summer from a whirlwind transition from Iowa to the WNBA. Clark and fellow top-3 pick Kamilla Cardoso made their WNBA debuts just weeks after facing off in the NCAA championship game that South Carolina won over Iowa.
