While anything's good on a minimum contract, there's a reason players like Farmar, Vujacic and Powell haven't drawn any outside interest this offseason other than from the Lakers. It's because they aren't any...
and Powell's likely the worst of it. Re-read my scouting report. That's literally as scathing as it gets. If you thought I was harsh on Kaman and Farmar, wait tell you see Powell's.
of course. we have absolutely NOTHING going for us right now so the FO figured why not just bring back the guys from the back to back title teams just for old time's sake since we have nothing to lose.
we all know powell isn't going to do close to anything performance-wise but he always brings energy and like someone else said, he's a great locker room guy. if this was most any other off-season, these signings would get us all thinking WTF. but there's really nothing else they can do, and it's already clear that we are not going to be even close to contending next season
