^ well we don't have Brown or Sasha, what matters is whether he fits better than Ebanks/DJO. Collins started him 50 games last year, I'd like to know what his averages were as a starter.

i watched him a bit. He's not a great defender and doesn't get to the rim much. But he can shoot. Not a great athlete either. Nice role player though. If he understands that he's a role player, he will be a great fit. If he's one of those shannon brown types who think they should start...well, then he won't be a good fit

don't know much about him, but looking at his numbers it appears he doesn't do anything really well, except having a decent, but not great 3pt %. that being said...at least it's not kapono.
Move along ho, Super Lakers don't hang out with no skanks.

Dude can light it up from beyond the arc....the looks he would get with Nash, Kobe, Gasol, Bynum would be different from what he got in Philly alongside a bunch of perimeter players and...Elton Brand.

Would love this guy off the bench. He definitely can shoot the ball and is fairly athletic.

I'm down with bringing some youth on this team.

Just a little taste of what he can do, which is shoot from the perimeter!

get him. bench needs young guys. this guy is good and improving. only in the league 3 years.

i say if he wants to play with nash and be a part of something great than get him asap.

im tired of "interest" not amounting to anything. if we want someone than push hard for them. he's improved his 3 point shot and can shoot. young talent is always a good thing to bring in.

His low FG%...for a non-volume shooter is actually concerning. The few games I have watched him play...he seemed to knock down shots though. But that's a pretty tiny sample.
