I don't think so. I can't see anyone giving him $10m. Not per season, and probably not over the course of the contract either.

One name....

Brandon Roy.

The guy only has a kneecap and skin and got 5 million this season to play. If Drew can at least play 10 minutes for 50 games, some team will give him the money.

For the minimum? That's the only way I'd bring him back, one year minimum deal as a backup.

I'd go a bit above the minimum, honestly. Nothing crazy, but he's a "stash and hope" guy.

The Lakers would inspect his knees before signing.

If healthy, I don't see a reason not to offer something in the 8-10 mil range with a team option to cut him lose after next season (If necessary).

I wouldn't sign him if the lakers couldn't get out after next season.

Drew is interesting.... if he plays he's worth 10 million easily.... if he's in the trainer's room he's not worth a dime....

That said.... he's not coming back here. If he was still here and had played this year I doubt we'd have a chance at re-signing him.

Yep.. Someone is giving him 10+ a season. Although they'll probably have a team option on the 2nd year. Sad to see, I always liked Drew & we all know when we was healthy he had stretches where he was the best C in the league. If he put together a healthy season this guy would be getting a 4 or 5 year max contract.

Come on now....ease up on the OP and take the "blinders" off. Remember all those times when Drew, in spite of his strong build and size....used to be one of the first guys up the floor and following up for rebounds on the break?

Oh. Wait. Sorry. How did I mix up Drew with Shannon Brown. Aye yai yai!! Keep moving .... nothing to see here. :bang:

LOL!

Sure thing.

And if he's not interested, let's go courting Greg Oden.

If I were a gambling man, Id offer him the chump change we can offer to free agents (tiny contract) for a year.

He'd laugh out loud over the phone and ask me if Id forgotten how stupid GMs are and switch back over to the other line where a team is waiting, biting their nails hoping he accepts their $15M/yr offer.
