He was a mismatch night mare for many teams and that will only get worse now being that you have to pick between lebron, AD and Harrell. Of course Harrell doesnt get one of your top 2 defenders.
Ibaka is Morris with shotblocking, although he didnt block a lot last year
This better defines my point - the upside of Harrell in this role is higher than the upside Ibaka would bring to the Lakers. The move could also backfire and not work.
However, on the Clippers - Ibaka is a better fit even if he doesn't have the ceiling of Harrell.
If he were starting, i would agree.
But bringing energy off the bench with (hopefully) Schroeder, please give me Harrell.
But this does require the Lakers brining in a replacement for Dwight.
If they land Gasol at the minimum (which is very possible if he want to compete for a championship take $2.6MM from the Lakers with a $2.9MM player option for next season - Rondo's deal from last year - vs $5.7MM this year from Golden State) that puts a bow on the offseason.
Would also like to see them land a wing - a Trevor Ariza if he is bought out or potentially Otto Porter Jr at the waiver deadline.
