I am so sick and tired of them losing so many games bec they bricked those wide open perimeter shots, shooting under 30% most of the time. I understand that there guys like Fry and Korver who can shoot but also are defensive liabilities but they really need to go after these shooters.
I am hoping Collison will give the Lakers a "discount" as he got paid 10 mil last season, high but just 1 year bec he grew up here in Southern Cal just like Kawhi probably tired of living in the cold city. I am not sure tho that others will take a discount bec they know their ability to hit shots and defend is at a premium right now esp Green and Morris. Ross maybe. If one of them esp Green is open to get paid under 10 Mil, then I will consider it.
Yes, I’m keen on players with the ability to stretch the floor and knock 3s. I would like to avoid having Lebron or Kuz defend 4s; it’s a losing proposition. Acquiring a true stretch 4 and 5 should be imperative.
I realize salary cap dynamics will come with its challenges. Tempering my expectations, I’m hopeful we can secure at least one or two key puzzle pieces through free agency, and by that I’m referring to reliable role players such as those previously listed.
