I like Lou. He killed it in Phoenix with Nash. (Relatively speaking for a backup C)

Honestly, I think with the emergence of Chris Johnson backing up Pek, combined with the fact that they don't really have wing players, an Ebanks/Lou swap makes sense.

Good call. He's a nice hustle guy who fits in the MDA system well.

Do NOT want KMart. At all. No matter what. Under ANY circumstance.

Why not. Jamison or Clark at the 5 is just a no go.

Dont we still have an injury exception we can use if we just wanted to add someone?

there's waiver priorities I bet, we're probably bottom of the list due to our salary cap being the highest.

Amundson would be a pretty good pick up. He is always annoying to me vs our team because of his hustle. I would mind having him around to annoy other teams.

We can't keep playing with those small line ups, second, third, fourth chance points kill us.

Jamison couldn't even guard Green last night. It was embarrassing.

Amundson would be a solid pickup imo. He has experience with D'antoni & Nash, did pretty well as backup C with them. We need a big who plays defense other than Dwight with Pau out. Pau is actually a great defender when you compare him to say, Jamison.

Very true, those Jamison/Clark/MWP lineups really killed us on the boards last night.

I don't care how bad his numbers are this year if pick Amundson up immediately if possible, he's a hustle guy which is something we lack big time. I think if actually given minutes here he'd contribute immediately.

I would be fine with KMart but I agree. Amundson would provide the energy without some of the baggage that KMart brings. Plus he's played with Nash if I'm not mistaken, though I'm starting to think that counts for less and less these days
There are two teams that play in the Staples Center:
the LA Lakers and NBA Clippers.

Amundson is a hard worker and a hustler, which is what we need he would dit well with Nash. However, he is not a center.

i fully expect mitch to be at the ASB and looking to make some type of deal, even if it's just for a bench player.

i would love to get a james jones type (i know miami won't sent him to us) who is just rotting away on the bench it seems

otherwise, just bringing in a serviceable backup C or a PF is all we can ask for.

is there a sucker out there that will take metta?

remember when we almost got Gerald Wallace/Stephen Jackson from Char. in exchange for him
then MJ backed out because he thought MWP won't be happy there

man I really wish someone would take him...he's a walking turnover these days

^ I completely forgot about that. Who knows maybe Mitch can work his magic and get us both a serviceable big and a SF.

If Mitch can pull of a trade for a decent SF by Feb, we have a legitimate shot at not only making the PO's but making some noise. A SF who can shoot and play defense would do wonders. We're tied with Miami and Metta is 2-8 for 6 points. We need a competent SF...

Watching this game, makes me think we need to trade for a legit backup center that can rebound the ball.

^A legit backup center with a decent SF that can shoot & defend; if Mitch can pull that off by the trade deadline, we'd increase our chances of making the PO's, IMO. A little youth, athleticism, & size would go a long way; we can look at Earl for our example...

I'm surprised we still haven't heard much of anything, this must mean Mitch is working on a trade of some sort.
