Let's take about 5 steps back and think about this... The Lakers are going to amnesty Kobe Bean Bryant.

What happens if Dwight and Smith walk in the offseason, which is very likely?

Yikes.


Where do they go?

Dallas, Houston, Cleveland for starters?

I'm not saying together, just that both could and might leave. Almost likely to.

if i remember it right the current team can offer the most money to upcoming FAs. they would have to leave like 20m on the table. its a tough sell.

I have to admit, this Laker mess is quite entertaining.

Wizards pick to the Lakers unprotected.

Nets pick to Golden State unprotected.


Too good for the Nets. Wiz don't mind trying to get in on this in order to get Lopez, and while Nene is on the block, we'd probably be more interested in building a core around Wall, Beal, Nene and lopez. Although Lopez assist:to ratio leads me to think he's a bit of a blackhole.

Regarding Dwight, I knew this would happen. I knew it wouldn't "work" in Lakers land, but not to his extent. If POR has the cap space, they would be the best landing spot for him. LMA, Batum and Howard as FC trio is best in the NBA, they would just dominate, every night.

He'll get his in endorsements so long as he performs. If he stays in LA, what prospect of success on the court does he have? Odds are they won't make the playoffs this year and it isn't like they can add great pieces for next year. If he wants guaranteed money, he ought to stay, but if he actually gives a damn about basketball, there is no reason to stay.

Dwight needs to put on his big boy pants and "adapt" like Gasol.

I don't think your concern should be too good for the Nets, you're getting an up and coming stud center for a pick in a draft where it's supposedly not so hot to have a top 5 pick.

Washington would just get cut out of this if they wanted to get cute and a team like Cleveland would be brought in.

Regarding Dwight, I knew this would happen. I knew it wouldn't "work" in Lakers land, but not to his extent. If POR has the cap space, they would be the best landing spot for him. LMA, Batum and Howard as FC trio is best in the NBA, they would just dominate, every night.

That's about as realistic as the Lakers amnestying Kobe.

Yes. It's not like he's definitely losing $20 mill, he just gets one less year and you're hitting it on the head here. Dwight will get a $200 + million deal from Adidas in Dallas or Houston. I think that makes up for it. In fact no need to backtrack to avoid argument, you said it right the first time. The guaranteed money really isn't a worry here because of the absurd amount he'll get from Adidas in any major market and as long as he isn't a scrub by the time he's in his early 30's he'll be extended for max anyway and will make up almost all of that extra money.

For the Wiz it just seems like a lateral move for the immediate future. Lopez is better then Nene, but I wouldn't say by a staggering amount. The only reason for us to consider it is Nene's injury issues. I haven't seen enough of Humphries to make a harsh judgment on him, but I kinda doubt he's worth more than Okafor, whose expiring could be of great value to us in the next trade deadline.

I think Lopez would be better fit with the Cavs. They got more trade chips then we do. Irving+Waiters+Lopez could be a playoff team in the future.

I think Dwight should go directly to management and ask for the coach to be fired. Last time I checked it worked.

What happened to all of those Lakers sigs quoting skaterdude? They should not have been allowed to remove them.
