We should've kept Damian Jones. Wonder if we can trade Gasol to the Kings for Jones.

If you think the Lakers don’t need anymore depth that’s something I guess we’ll have agree to disagree on.


At this stage, any depth they add will be 3rd or 4th string. Spot minutes at best.


If you get a guy like Giles or Oturu then yes, they’re only going to get spot minutes. The trade off with a guy like that is either Ariza or Carmelo will likely be playing too many minutes. If you get a guy like Millsap or Love (if he’s bought out), then they’ll be sharing the backup big F role with Anthony, and Ariza is the one who ends up with spot minutes.

Great depth is a good problem to have.

Milsap and/or Love are not interchangeable with Ariza, only Anthony. Adding Milsap means either he and/or Anthony get spot minutes.

Could you (or a mod) please update the thread title from "singed" to "signed"?

dante exum on the vet min anyone? imo, low risk, high reward (could end up being a cut price caruso)

pros:
young (26yo) , tall (6'6") PG, solid defender, can defend 1-3, offers additional ball handling in the event nunn, monk and THT aren't getting it done

cons:
injury prone, not a great shooter (that's ok, he'll be a third stringer)

I quite honestly don't trust him to stay healthy, he is an ex-Pelinka client though so its not outside the realm of possibilities. If we were to take a shot at a young reclamation project at PG for defensive purposes, I'd prefer Ntilikina but him and LeBron don't have a good history.

Mark Stein is reporting that Dudley is in advanced talks to become an assistant coach with the Mavericks.

So I guess we're waiting on Rondo and DeAndre Jordan to get bought out. Then wait for Kevin Love whenever that will be.

Hold on Dudley saying he wasn't offered a roster spot? But he took a coaching position?

So this is out of spite then

Love looks like he is going to get bought out. He would be a perfect backup center for us.

Kevin Love would be a really underrated pick up. Pick up Rondo when he gets bought out and go to war with the guys we have.

Per Shams: Rondo has agreed to a buyout.

Per Shams & Woj: Post buyout, LAL is the front runner to sign Rondo.

Here comes Rondo, hopefully.

I like it. He can still play and is a good player/coach on the floor.
I'd rather have him on the roster than Dudley.

If Rondo signs with us, look for AD to have a MVP year.
