I've watched several rocket games. Watched this guy as well. When he's on. HE IS ON. Definition of a Streak shooter. So I like that part. He has confidence in his shot, and will launch at will.
But again, well see what happens under fire. All things are tested in the playoffs. And In a Laker uniform. I've seen alot of good, quality streak shooters lose the fire when they dress up in Purple and Gold.
I'm hoping he comes in with the flames

2 summers ago, Rob signed 2 really good shooters who averaged 39% from 3 for their career at that time.. that’s higher than Ben’s career average.... their names? Trou Daniels and Cook...

Just thinking out loud. If Mclemore stays with the lakers next season for cheap, they could possibly move KCP. And if Schroder doesn't sign....that could give the possibility of signing Drummond

Is Ben anything better than Lance, guitarist, Stephenson?

And, we don't wait anymore on potential buyouts ?

Wondering why guaranteed deal is offered at this point instead of giving time for trial

the lakers still have roughly 400k under the hard cap

if pelinka sees an opportunity to get an upgrade (or if someone who's expiring goes down for the season), there's still an opportunity to waive them and grab another vet min contract.

this would be:
- wes (depends on whether lakers want his non-bird rights to re-sign him)
- mckinnie (future years are unguaranteed)
- kieff (he'd be getting vet min offers anyway, no need for his early bird rights)
- dudley (same as kieff)
- drummond (we're not re-signing him without using our mle exception anyway)
- mclemore (yes, if he doesn't perform, he could just get cut)

i'm excluding schroder, caruso and tht because it's obvious the lakers would prefer having their bird rights over another body
