Mid-level again could be option for Heat. RT @Hydrogen1914 Could Heat now make a move for Lamar Odom now that they used amnesty on miller?

Lamar did love Miami and playing for Riles.


If he wants out of LA and the Kardashians i can see him leaving for Miami for a year. BUT we've seen and know how much he loves LA and playing for the lakers so who knows...he might be sorting things out at home before he focusses on basketball

not the same player anymore. but there are not many big men who can do what he does still at this point in his career...and who knows maybe being a laker will spark him again. his versatility and chemistry with kobe and pau would be huge if he came back to the lakers.

actually seeing that tweet, we should pursue Miller........yea he's injury prone as hell but the man can shoot even on 1 leg. He's been a near 40% 3pt shooter for his entire career. Besides Nash we really dont have another other player on the team that shoots 40% from 3's.

I think Miller's value should be right around Dunleavy's, & we saw Dunleavy got much more than the minimum.. Both guys are going to give you 40% or better from 3 & above average bbiq.. If he's willing to come here I hope they get an offer in quickly.

Odom is a head case and I don't want to see Kobe's wife beefing with the beefy Kardashians again. Not so sure it didn't ruin the team attitude and cause issues the first time around.

...thought it was Brown who was rumored to have done the deed? Vanessa Bryant alledgedly was the one who broke the news to Gasol.

Based on his play on teams with championship aspirations the last two years why would a contender want him? If playing for a team that's in the top 5 or 6 didn't mesh the gears I'm not sure anything can anymore.

Maybe Lamar is still upset at being traded or it's due to him being caught on camera destroying papperazzi's equipment.

Wow.. So no LO or Mullens? I think that leaves Maxiell as the only big worth signing. Surely our FO doesn't have THAT much faith in Kelly & Sacre? Pau is going to be Pau.. You can play him big minutes, but he's going to miss some games when he gets worn down.. Kaman is a 20 MPG player.. Hill is a 16 MPG player.. Even if we play Pau 33 MPG again, that leaves us with 27 MPG available at PF/C.. & we're going to give those to Sacre & Kelly? We're replacing Dwight Howard, Jamison, & Earl Clark with Kaman & Kelly? They can't be done, I refuse to believe that. We need atleast 1 more big, & I think we actually need both Maxiell & LO.

Pincus has no legit sources, just opinions like a blogger, he's not Woj or a guy in the know
For what its worth: http://www.cbssports.com/nba/blog/eye-o ... on-mullens

The move also likely paves the way for the Lakers to sign Lamar Odom. Both LA teams had been talking to Odom and Mullens.


They seemed to be talking to Mullens still to he chose the clips according to CBS.

As for LO, the clips were a +9 with him on the floor, but it made no sense under Doc. Doc plans to play Hollins as well, unlike Vinny. That D and those intangibles were unmistaken for that team and I would think Rambis would have use for him since he molded the funneling system here and was a guy pushing for LO to run a second unit before.

As for Jamsion, I just assume he goes to the bobcats, gets a slightly higher pay, retires home. I liked having him last year, and honestly with the way Hill has stayed hurt and Kelly have a six week setback, I would jump at the chance to sign both Lamar and Tawn, then worry about the rest later

I don't know that I would say that Pincus has "no legit sources", we don't really know that. He's a media guy, he writes for the Lakers/Clippers, he writes for the LA Times now, he never claimed to have sources, he's a writer, I don't know that we need to try and diminish him as a 'blogger' or something.

it seems that a few posters here really go out of their way to do just that
For what it's worth, the Lakers also clinched the Pacific Division, an achievement Bryant dismissed by saying "We don't hang divisions." No, only the big NBA championship banners are considered wall-worthy for the Lakers.

My expectations for this season so far have been with the assumption we're going to add a PF, either a starter that fits the 'Antoni style like Odom, or at least a backup for Hill, who has an injury history. If we can't get a Martin, LO, Maxiel, a real PF, my hopes for this season go down some. I'm not quite sure what the Lakers are doing about the position, but they cannot think we are set as is, there's no way. We have Hill and maybe Kelly at PF, Pau is done playing there as a backup or at all, Kaman is not a PF. Hill has an injury history, Pau and Kaman have recent injury history, and Kelly is currently injured. :man10: We need another PF, minutes need to be split carefully between these older and injury prone bigs. So I really hope the FO has a plan that we're unaware of, or maybe is talking to players maybe we haven't heard about, I would still take LO here obviously.

I'm not certain who they're going after but I remember reading from Bresnahan that their next focus was PF, so I'm sure they're looking into it.

In fact last I'd heard they wanted to let LO figure it out while still shopping around. I know that from everything I've heard Laker insiders say, Jim Buss loves Lamar and would welcome him back with the most open arms.
