We also play 8 guys, he'd be 9, off the bench. A hustle guy that doesn't need plays drawn for him, there wouldn't be a lot of need for him to gel, he's a hustle guy that can fit right in. If they don't want this to be a lost season I think they would get help when it's needed. We're beating bad teams yes, but good teams are still owning us, Lou wouldn't be a savior but it's a big to help the bench that we need.
Seven years in the league means he should get roughly 1.15 million for the minimum salary. After taxes that's another 2.3 million on top of everything in what could very well be a 2.3 million dollar waste of money. Would he help us win a Championship? Probably not. Would he help us make the playoffs? Sure. But if the goal is now to make the playoffs, the roster as constructed should be able to do that.
Keep in mind guys, this is the devil's advocate speaking. I'm on the fence on this one, but I'd add another body for insurance. But I can definitely see why they wouldn't want to add another player.
