Lakers also like Chase Budinger but it's a severe long shot. He'll get more than $3.1 mill they can offer him annually, league source says.

Really like Air Bud, he's one of the primary FAs I wanted us to at least attempt to get this off-season. Glad we're at least exploring the possibility.

Damn, really? Why? The dude barely played last season. If he's available at some point for 3.1 million we might want to just take the chance on him right off the bat...

Why would he demand so much money on the market?

This is probably the best name I've heard so far. I like Chase. He's athletic, a decent shooter, and an underrated defender. He's only 25 at that. He made $942,293 last year with the Wolves. Offering him 3.1 million would be an upgrade to his pay scale; however, would it be enough to entice him to come and play in L.A.? It depends what's offered for him on the open market...

Would love to have Budinger, hopefully we can afford him despite the report that he'll get more than the mini-MLE.

I would be elated if we nabbed him for 3.1 mil
There are two teams that play in the Staples Center:

Always wanted him on the team. Good bench player

Budinger isn't bad. I can't believe we're being associated with decent players who actually address needs.

Even though we might loss Dwight... I like where we are headed with this FAs interest... A healthy Gasol, who knows, we might not be that bad. :jam2:

I've been down on him lately because of his injury & us already being an injury plagued team. But as a player he's absolutely someone I've wanted on our team since his rookie season. Good 3 point shooter high, bbiq, good team defense.. He's only 25.. He's just a great piece to have. If he's healthy he could be one of the top role players available in this FA class.

Minnesota has 4 year offers out to J.J. Redick and Chase Budinger, sources tell Y! Redick is priority, but Wolves want to sign one of them.

^So, he got a little over then 5.3 million dollars...well, we couldn't afford that to begin with. He would have been really nice, but it looks like we'll have to go in another direction...
