Mavs shopping Dominique Jones w/out success so most likely scenario before roster cutdown remains release of Delonte West to keep Eddy Curry

If we made a offer to Delonte, the only thing we can offer is the minimum, correct?

Hell we'll take Jones if you give us Delonte. We'll give you Duhon's friendly contract and Clark's friendly contract.

We have 1.59 of the mini-MLE IIRC. So we could offer him a 2 year deal of some sort like we did with Meeks.

I doubt we'll get West. But If we do, is Blake or Meeks the odd man out?

^Meeks isn't going anywhere. I believe it would be Blake or Duhon. They can get rid of both as far as I'm concerned...

Too early to say definitively, but my money would be on West. Meeks does far more with his catch and shoot/defensive ability at the two than Blake does.

You mean your money is on Blake, right? I think they would trade/cut Duhon instead since Brown said that Blake has been around with us longer. IMO, they both should be out if we get West.

Yes I do, my bad.

Good point, but I think if we're not using Blake's 4 million dollars then we're getting rid of him. Duhon should be traded at some point regardless of anything. 3 million for what he does is simply too much. But if we had the chance to go get West, then I think Blake would be finding his way out the door somehow.

^I believe he was almost out the door last Feb/March during the trade deadline in a three-way trade that would have sent him back to Portland. Unfortunately, that deal fell through...

The Lakers can still waive Morris. He's the cheapest AND the one with the least upside.

Please go, Mitch! Go!

Alright, Mitch... please

Signing him would be so awesome. Suddenly, our bench looks great with players like West, Meeks, Ebanks, Jamison, Hill, Sacre...

Adrian Wojnarowski‏@WojYahooNBA

Will be NBA interest in Delonte West; plan for him will be to wait on teams that develop needs in early season and see where there's a fit.


we have the NEED now.

I sincerely doubt this happens, but I think it'd make our team a lot better.

In the last 3 minute I've decided not to get my hopes up. :man10:

The Lakers put Blake and Duhon on the trading block, meaning they don't like what they see. Delonte is available right now and it's an immediate and immense upgrade at the 1, takes a large amount of pressure off Nash, as Delonte can give you 20-25 minutes a night if need be.

The 2nd unit would be set and we did show interest him in the summer time before he went back to the Mavs.

The Lakers must pull the trigger on this, our bench desperately needs some help and Delonte can really contribute when given minutes. It will be a mistake to not at least try and get him.

The problem is Delonte is bat shat crazy and a mother (bleep), literally.
