Then we still have the exception to use on either PJ Brown or Juwan Howard or Gary Payton. Then we can get Scottie Pippen for the minimum or even Karl Malone if he is willing to take that big of a pay cut, and don't forget about Keon Clark. Then for sure we can get Eric Piatkowski for cheap or Jimmy Jackson who is actually a very valuable person.
Elden Campbell is a free agent and a native from Los Angeles, why not bring him back?
These are all possibilities the Lakers can think about.
I just don't like the idea of having Jason Terry, he's too much of a risk in the triangle right now, later on when his skills develop I'd maybe consider him. He may get a lot of assists, but he turns the ball over too much averaging 3 per game, and you add that w. the 3 kobe turns over and you have 6 just from them a night!
Plus if we were to sign Gary Payton we wouldn't need Jason Terry, Payton would be our starting point guard. As for Pippen I was excited about the possibility of him coming to LA, but he's just too old and will be a liability..same goes for Malone, we may win another title or two..but I'd rather get younger players and look at the possibility of winning 4+ titles, face it..Pippen and Malone would not last more than 2 seasons in LA, I say sign Juwan Howard or PJ Brown along with Piatkowski, and if Jim Jackson frees himself from the Queens then sign him as well..let Fisher continue the starting role and let Pargo develop and show what he can do
