So the guys that are total wastes of space need to go. Too much at stake this year.
MDA won't go to 12-15 on the bench most of the time, but know that Kobe, Nash, Artest, and Gasol will miss some time this year. And it is ok to rest them on occassion on back to backs and long road trips --like Pop and Doc do all the time.
Waive Sacre. Sign Yi out of his cheap contract in China (bet MDA could do wonders with him -- much more than he did even with Frye, esp. with his speed and passing abilities next to Dwight).
Waive Clark. Sign Pietrus.
Waive DJO and sign Raja.
Nash, Duhon, Blake, Morris
Kobe, Meeks, Bell
Artest, Pietrus, Ebanks
Gasol, Yi, Jamison
No we are not waving because he's Hill insurance, Pieturs won't sign for less, and finally Raja Bell doesn't deserve a Laker jersey.
