Actually, I think he could fit this system. Yeah he's going to throw up some bricks, but his shooting hasn't been too awful this year, and getting open looks playing with better players is going to increase his shooting %. I kind of have the feeling he could be a Trevor Ariza type of steal if we could grab him. They play different positions sure, but I think he could be that sneaky high energy athlete that grabs steals, runs the floor, cuts off ball, and plays defense. Shooting is nice, but it's not everything.
This current Laker team has no youthful athletes like we had the last couple of years. I'm talking about the Sasha/Jordan/Shannon/Trevor type of guys. Yeah, not the greatest players, but each of them brought something to our championship runs. Morris, and Meeks are not really there in terms of impact, and both of them have massive holes in their game that ultimately makes them a liability.
Jared Dudley would be really nice too, he's more of a "3 and D" swingman, while Tyreke is an athletic playmaking combo. Both would be a massive upgrade to our squad.
