Lakers aren't a reasonable destination for Bucks' Jennings

Postby emplay on Mon Jul 15, 2013 6:14 pm

Hey all,

I have a full understanding now of the restrictions – Lakers can’t S&T for Jennings, even if they ended up under the apron after the transaction.

I'm kind of up in the air about Jennings...his over FG% isn't great, but it can be improved, IMO. He's a decent playmaker, good lateral quickness, and a good finisher around the rim. Nevertheless, he's undersized, doesn't play great defense, and his decision making can be reckless at times. IDK. For the right price, I would do it.

That's fine.. Let Nash stay healthy until the deadline so Toronto really wants him & gives us/Mil a great package.. They can have Lowry I just want Jennings & picks.. The Raps might actually win the lottery if we have their pick, their luck is that bad.

How about Jennings isn't a reasonable option for the Lakers?

Good.

If the Lakers future consisted of Jennings and Melo...

Let's just be happy that the Lakers FO know better.

It appears most of the posters believe we can just pick & choose which good players we'll have on our team.. Sometimes you just have to take the best you can get.. I hope we DO end up with Melo & Jennings next year, or we'll be enjoying another first round exit.

Jennings to me looks like a young, raw Iverson. Wonder how he feels about practice...

Or you show patience, wait a little longer and get something better. No sense in signing someone you don't really want because you're in a hurry to reload. As bad as I want to see Kobe get some quick help to pursue that 6th ring, I don't want to endure mediocrity for several years because management acted hastily and made a bad choice on the guy to build around post-Kobe. I guess if they picked up a guy like Jennings and they didn't want him they might be able to trade him for something else. But it would be hard to flip him for something of equal value if he doesn't pan out.

No more so than some posters defining the term "good player" in a way that supports their opinion. For 12 to 15 Million a year is Jennings a "Good Player"? For a team that will have maybe 2 players making over 15 Million is he a "good player"?

If he wants 8 Million to be a support player then I'd consider him a "good player"....

Now for the Melo + Jennings comment. Tying up that kind of money in those two ensures early exits in the playoffs. Melo himself ensure that. I guess if your idea of a "successful Laker's team" is first and second round exits then you accept second best.

I'm talking about trying to get a 23 year old PG that gives you 16/6 on his 4.5M QO for the 2nd half of the season & getting rid of Nash & his 2 remaining years, & possibly getting some other assets. I don't see how this can possibly be a bad thing for us.. Worst case scenario, we unloaded Nash's contract & can go into free agency with an almost the entire cap to spend. Best case scenario, we replaced Nash with a young PG that is good enough to start for us & we lock him in for cheap next summer & add Melo or Bron. I just don't see the downside in going after Jennings, especially if Nash is the cost.

I hope it consists of no Melo, personally. Unless he's making MLE money.

Jennings shoots 39% from the field and takes 40% of his shots from the 3..... where he shoots 36%. When he can't jack up a shot he dishes out 6 assists...

Give Ramon Sessions 36 Minutes a game and you can get 99% of that for 1/3 the cost (after his next contract)

Overrated just starts to describe him when you factor in the cost. Steve Francis 2.0.... except not as good.
