In his show “Undisputed,” sports expert and former National Football League player Shannon Sharpe recently evaluated the new starting lineup for the Los Angeles Lakers.
The Los Angeles Lakers have recently strengthened their roster by acquiring D’Angelo Russell, Malik Beasley, and Jared Vanderbilt just before the trade deadline. The historic three-team deal also included Russell Westbrook and Mike Conley.
Lakers rookie Scotty Pippen Jr. is the son of former NBA champion Larsa Pippen. His father won the title in the NBA. The year 2020 saw the beginning of Larsa and Malik Beasley’s relationship.
This rationale, according to Shannon Sharpe, was sufficient for the 22-year-old player to move on to teams. During a recent episode of Undisputed, host Shannon Sharpe discussed the topic of trades with guest analyst Skip Bayless.
Shannon Sharpe said, “If I’m Scottie Pippen Jr., I want a trade.” It’s time for me to leave because Malik Beasley has agreed to join our squad. Sharpe continued, “I’m going to fight it.”

After going undrafted in the 2022 NBA draft, Pippen Jr. signed a two-way contract with the Los Angeles Lakers on July 1, 2022.
Per the terms of the deal, he will split his time between the Lakers and their G League affiliate, the South Bay Lakers. The Lakers do not use the rookie player in their starting lineup at this time.
Larsa Pippen became the subject of public interest in December 2020 when she was observed walking hand in hand with Malik Beasley, who was a player for the Minnesota Timberwolves at the time.
The dating rumours started flying between the two when they were photographed spending time together in Florida.

Larsa Initially Denied Having a Romantic Relationship With Malik Beasley
Reality TV actress Larsa initially denied having a romantic relationship with Malik Beasley and claimed that the two were merely friends, but later she admitted that the two had a romantic connection.
Nevertheless, Montana Yao, who was still married to Malik Beasley at the time, voiced her anger with the photographs in a public forum.
Malik Beasley and Yao have announced that they will be filing for divorce in February 2021 and have begun the separation process. Beasley made a public statement to his family and friends in which he expressed regret for his actions and promised to “do better.”
He also stated that he was “not proud of his behavior.” Marcus Jordan, the son of Michael Jordan, a former NBA champion, and Larsa Pippen are currently in a romantic relationship.
