Well, assuming we did that.. We'd probably go for 2 of Fish, Pietrus, Kmart with the open roster spots. I just don't think it's enough of an improvement for that many outgoing players.. We don't shake things up that much in the middle of the season.. 1 or 2 players will be dealt, likely for more cap friendly deals.

Doc don't you get it Pietrus won't take less to sign here. Also Ebanks is the least of our problems right now when we are trying to move Blake and Duhon.

I actually have hope for Ebanks in this offense

I'd like to see what these guys can do before we kick them to the curb. KMart would make sense even though I don't like him, but why be in such a hurry to dispose of some of these young talents we have?

The New Orleans Hornets have waived guard Matt Carroll.

The Hornets acquired Carroll on November 13 from the Charlotte Bobcats in exchange for forward Hakim Warrick.

Well we don't have the room, and unless we're able to trade one of our PGs we'll likely have to cut one of Ebanks/DJO if we want to sign him.

Lakers show interest in Raja Bell

http://sports.yahoo.com/news/nba--lakers-show-interest-in-raja-bell-182319145.html

With the hiring of Mike D'Antoni as coach, the Los Angeles Lakers are showing a renewed interest in acquiring exiled Utah Jazz guard Raja Bell, league sources told Yahoo! Sports.
Bell, 36, has had strong advocates with general manager Mitch Kupchak and Kobe Bryant since the summer, but D'Antoni's history coaching Bell with the Phoenix Suns has amplified discussion of signing the veteran guard should the Lakers create an opening on their roster.
With a $100 million payroll and $30 million in additional luxury-tax expenditures, the Lakers are unsure about cutting a player, paying his salary and then paying the additional salary ($1.3 million) and tax that it would take to sign Bell.
The Lakers have tried unsuccessfully for several weeks to trade bench players to create roster space.
"The biggest question is the taking on of more money," a league source told Yahoo! Sports.
Bell is still under contract with the Jazz, but the team has allowed him to stay away this season until he finds a suitable offer and the two sides can execute a buyout. Once Bell has secured a contract for the veteran's minimum elsewhere, the Jazz will buy out the difference on the remaining $3.5 million on his 2012-13 contract. Bell wouldn't lose any money between the buyout and joining a new team.
Utah has allowed Bell and his agent, Herb Rudoy, to search out deals elsewhere. The Chicago Bulls have shown some interest in Bell, too, but haven't made any offers, league sources told Yahoo! Sports.
[Related: Kobe, Michael Jordan provide blueprint for aging Dwyane Wade (video)]
When his minutes and role diminished a year ago, Bell began to clash with Jazz coach Tyrone Corbin. Bell started 30 games for the Jazz a year ago, but his minutes steadily decreased over the season. Bell had long been considered a quality perimeter defender and a credible 3-pointer shooter, but several league executives, scouts and coaches wonder how much of that proficiency is still left in his game.
Bryant has been a proponent of acquiring Bell once he's a free agent – and has communicated that to Bell, sources said – but Los Angeles signed shooting guard Jodie Meeks and absorbed several contracts in its trade for Dwight Howard.
Bell has been working out in his hometown of Miami, preparing for his chance to return to the league.

Bell is done. He doesn't solve our floor balance issues, isn't a ball handler and at this point is a plodding defender. If it was Bell circa 2005 I'd be for it but the current version is no better than Ebanks...

Bell:

'11- '12 = 39.1% 3pt FG
'10 - '11 = 35.2% 3pt FG

Carroll: well he just sucks. This i don't get.

At least w/ Bell, he can shoot the 3 ball. Career 40% from 3. Dantoni needs shooters for his offense. Ebanks isn't it.

While PHX under Pringles was indeed run and gun. It was more like run up the floor, and jack up open J's rather than run up the floor and drive to the basket.

Anybody watch the espn halftime show during the lakers game last night against denver. It was at the end before leading to commercial break before the second half started. When the camera was blacking out, u can hear jalen rose saying either "raja bell will be a laker" or raja bell gonna be a laker. I couldve sworn jalen saying that. Anybody else pick up on that?

Don't like Raja but he has already played with Dantoni and Nash so I wouldn't have a problem. Matt Carroll? All I know is he sucked in 2k.

Imagine Nash with Steve Novak though :man13:

I can confirm Raja Bell did work out for the #Knicks yesterday, via a league source. No further discussions since then.

I've played pickup games with Raja Bell at the U. Great dude. Although some years apart, we played for the same high school coach in Miami.

Don't want Bell but we have to sign someone.. I'd take Brown over Morris as our 3rd string PG.. As long as Bell isn't the only SF we get I'm ok with it.. He'll work well with D'antoni, & probably have an above average season like Blake did. We need to sign atleast 1 young SF.. Now that we can't afford Nick Young & Morrow is off the market, I'm thinking Dominic McGuire would be our best option, with Sam Young right behind him. Would absolutely love to sign all 3 of McGuire, Bell, & Stephen Jackson. That way an injury to Bell or Jackson doesn't force Kobe to SF. Really bad idea to put him at SF at this stage in his career.
