Marc Spears confirmed Alex Kennedy's on the Lakers getting Duhon + Clark earlier, so it looks like Kennedy's good on his sources.

Thus far based on the current reports:
Code: Select all
Lakers out:
                     2012-13        2013-14         2014-15
Andrew Bynum       $16,889,000
Christian Eyenga   $ 1,174,080    $2,119,213-T    $3,178,820-Q

Lakers in:

Dwight Howard      $19,536,360
Chris Duhon        $ 3,500,000    $3,750,000-N
Earl Clark         $ 1,240,000

^ I guess that means it'll be McRoberts because Alex Kennedy said Ebanks will sign the qualifying offer to stay with the Lakers.

Well Orlando needs a backup PG now that Duhon is gone. Blake can go to the Magic, we don't need the two worst PG's in the league on the same team.

I don't think Blake was that bad LOL.

I'd much rather have Blake AND Duhon then just Duhon. If we keep Duhon, I'm pretty sure he won't be in the rotation at all and rightfully so, because Blake is MUCH better than him IMO.

Our backup PG is getting paid 4 million, our 3rd string PG (Duhon) is getting paid 3.5 million and our 4th string PG is getting paid 1 million.

I think somebody is getting shown the door.

Blake has to be the odd man out somehow if we're getting Duhon. I'm confident in that. Maybe Blake goes to Philly and we get Meeks somehow back.

Unfortunately, the 76ers don't have Meeks' rights anymore. I saw emplay reply to someone asking about that on twitter:
Eric Pincus ‏@EricPincus
@smokesumbudE nah - meeks was renounced - they don't have his bird rights - can't do it without cap room which they don't have (sixers)

For the Magic, if they were willing to take on Blake's contract, wouldn't they just keep Duhon since he has less money owed and they're gonna tank like there's no tomorrow?

Blake should be the odd man out because all that salary going into the backup PG is crappy, but it would be a crazy surprise if someone in this four-way actually wanted to take him.

Duhon is a better defender than Blake. My fear is with both of them on the roster, Brown will use both of them at the same time. He loves some two PG backcourt action. :bang:

^ Hm. I didn't know they had renounced the Bird Rights to Meeks... interesting.

Well we can still offer him part of the mini-MLE and I have a feeling we'll see that somewhere. I'm not sure where Duhon fits, but if he comes here and Blake is still on the team things will get interesting between the two. Duhon is straight up awful, worse even than Blake. I would hope LA bought him out or something. If not, Blake is an amnesty candidate. No way we can go into the season with over 7 million dedicated to our backup PGs that give us almost no production.

A buy out is possible, but I think Clark probably stays. If Duhon is coming in, I have a feeling Blake is going out. Blake CANNOT be our answer at the backup 2.

Problem with our current status now is that we have 14 players on our roster and Mitch always likes to have at least 1 roster spot open during the year.

I don't know what we're going to do, maybe buy someone out? Or maybe McRoberts is another player on his way out along with Bynum and Christian

Wow. Glock and Ebanks holding down 2nd string is pretty scary. Looking at the team when organized this way exposes our guard situation. We have to sign some talent to make sure Kobe and Nash don't play ridiculous minutes this season because no other player can be trusted.

McRoberts trade? Maybe give Arenas a chance?

well then crap. :man10:

besides his defensive liabilities i think we should give him a chance, IF we dont get anyone at the back up 2.

honestly i really wanted to get rid of blake, but i rather have him than duhon at this point. (but mayb duhon can put in some work like he did with the knicks)

and sign T-mac, honestly hes kind of a playoff curse, but he can do more good than harm. if he cant guard the faster younger dudes, throw ebanks in, and we're good.

We need Barbosa or Meeks and call it an offseason with a ridiculous team. Buy out Glock if you need to clear room.

Nash / Blake / Duhon / Morris
Kobe / Meeks or Barbosa / DJO
MWP / Ebanks
Pau / Jamison / McFly
D12 / Hill

If we roll with Duhon/Blake in the second unit, Kobe and Nash will be paying 35+ every night.

I like Barbosa more with Nash and Kobe on the bench because he can create for himself. That would be nice to have off the bench

2 guys who can just flat out score off the bench in jaimison and Barbosa
