Adam Streisand, a member of the Lakers' outside counsel, noted in the statement, ""The Lakers organization is pleased that this thorough investigation has been brought to a close – and we can assure the fans that the Lakers will be hyper-vigilant going forward to make sure this is never an issue again."
