Chargers head coach Anthony Lynn talked about the transition his team is making from San Diego to Los Angeles: "If we go out and play well, all of those distractions and other things people are talking about, it will take care of itself."

With Monday's owners vote approving the Raiders' move to Las Vegas, the Raiders and Rams-- remember when they were Los Angeles neighbors? -- account for four of the NFL's six most recent relocations.

Rams COO Kevin Demoff acknowledged that the Raiders' situation -- getting approved for Las Vegas, but remaining in Oakland for two or three more years -- "is certainly awkward." But he called it "an advantage from a logistics perspective." "They're not relocating in the same year as the vote," Demoff said. "They're staying in California this year. There will be some difficulties that come with that, but from a planning perspective, logistics perspective, it gives them a lot more time than we had, or the Chargers have, to get set up, to give players a chance to look at houses, to understand where the facility will be. Some of the really difficult challenges that come with a compressed timeframe, they will not face."

Rams are still in search of a center and would prefer one with experience for Jared Goff, who's still only 22. They're exploring free agency and trades for that. But besides that, they are pretty much done with free agency. At least for now. Rams are estimated to have somewhere between $10M and $12M in cap space, but roughly $5M of that will go to the draft.

Not surprising, given where their issues lie, but pretty clear at this point: the Rams are expected to go heavy at WR and TE in the upcoming draft.

This year's Final Four is not quite ideal for fans of the NBA draft. Duke, Kentucky, Arizona and UCLA all have more freshmen in Chad Ford's top 100 than the Final Four teams combined.

Predicting Dodgers' 2017 record

The Los Angeles Dodgers won a fourth straight NL West title in 2016 despite a piecemeal rotation. Joe Peta doesn't think the bullpen will bail L.A. out to such a degree in 2017.

It's a rather easy 270 miles from Los Angeles to Las Vegas. One question facing the Rams -- and the Chargers, of course -- is how many Raiders fans in LA will make the trek there on Sundays starting in 2019 or '20, when the new stadium in Inglewood is in full go.

Jeanie Buss tells ESPN: "It's great that we were able to work this out so fast. We've resolved everything clearly and cleanly and now we can get back to work. Laker fans deserve success - and now we can focus again on bringing it to them. "I'm also very happy that my sister Janie is becoming a Trustee of my family's Trust.
