John Ireland, Mychal Thompson Sign Contract Extensions

The Los Angeles Lakers radio team of John Ireland and Mychal Thompson are returning for the 2012-13 NBA season as the duo signed contract extensions Monday.

After spending years as a sideline reporter, Ireland was handed the play-by-play gig when Spero Dedes left for a radio position with the New York Knicks. Thompson has been the color analyst since the 2003-04 season.

710 AM ESPN Radio has been the flagship home of the Lakers since 2009.
