Gay would provide more athleticism and more explosive potential than any other name we could reasonably get.


wasted athleticism IMO, like I said 78% of his shot are jump shots, he average's roughly 4pts on close shots/dunks, that blows, Green nearly avg. 5pts on close close/dunks at an even higher efg%. But I'd dont want Gay or Green though.

problem with Granger is he has an injury history and is up in years. I wouldnt mind rudy gay for a couple of years, him at the 3 would open a lot of things. He would thrive in MDA's offense and give the Lakers youth and Kobe another guy to break down defenses.

Granger's knee problems don't bode well and Deng isnt really on the market anyway. They always say he is but they never actually trade him.

therealdeal wrote:Every situation is different. They moved on from Gay because they had players like Marc and Conley that needed him out of the way to develop. They made that choice. They did better with Prince because Prince was much worse than Gay and yes he understood his role. They needed to run the ball through Randolph to be successful and on the perimeter they had Conley, [Swearing is not permitted at Clublakers. You must edit this post prior to submitting.] was the odd man out.

The funny thing is, in the playoffs they NEEDED Gay. They had no one who could break down a defense by himself and get baskets.

The Lakers needs are different. Sure we need to run the ball through Howard, but we also need someone who will continue to make the defense work. We can't just have Dwight and shooters. Orlando tried and that didn't work. We need a guy who can get his own shot, especially with Kobe sidelined. Not to mention he can get hot and he's respectable from deep when taking good shots.


I'm really curious what that censored out word is :man10:

But yeah, beggars can't be choosers. Gay isn't a lockdown defender, but he's not incompetent either and we also have a HUGE need for another perimeter player who can create his own shot. Count me in for a Pau trade for Gay or Granger ... or quite frankly, almost any starting SF in the league because our SF rotation the past few years has been that of a D-League team. Well, that's not even true. There are probably some SF's in the D-League whose athleticism could've helped us out more than Metta's chucking.

Wright is my top choice free agent SG, so if we really aren't trying for him I'm also upset. Maybe the mini-MLE isn't enough, but I'd certainly offer that.

They never had Jimmy Butler ready to take his place on a rookie contract either.. I think this will be the year Deng moves if it happens.

Wright is going to get near full MLE money.. I'm sure that's why we're not after him.

He, along with Dorrell Wright, JJ Reddick, and Chase Budinger, is out of our price range.

Maybe I'm crazy but I don't really blame Dwight for our lack of activity. I think no matter what Dwight did we'd be waiting for the guys that are around when the money dries up. We just don't have enough money to go after the guys that are really in demand. We're coming off a terrible season by our standards & don't have the usual appeal to free agents. If Dwight would have gave us a commitment on july 1st I don't think it changes a single thing. This seems to be our strategy as long we're way over the tax.. Wait & see who the best guys we can lowball for the minimum are & hope for the best.

Can't beat that money.

But I'm surprised Atlanta even offered him a contract so early in the summer. Giving up on Dwight/other Max?

Well, they had the ability to sign both CP3 and Howard. I think that's what they were gunning for. With CP3 wrapped up in Clipperdom, I don't think they have to worry about keeping THAT much cap space open.

Any word on Darren Collison? My dream offseason still includes us resigning Dwight, flipping Pau and our 2014 pick for Eric Gordon and Anderson and signing Collison to the Mini-MLE.

Good.... and I was getting worried that people were getting carried away with their expectations.... :man10:

I'd just like us to begin the process of rebuilding this year rather than banking everything on one next summer.

Hey now. I did preface it by saying it was my dream offseason. But honestly, if we resign Dwight and get Collison with the mni mle and move Pau for ANYTHING, I'll be happy.

That Gordon & Anderson deal is seriously the best Pau deal we've heard about since Dragic/Martin/Scola or CP3, however you want to think of it. We're fools if that's out there & we aren't forcing the issue. Anderson is arguably the best stretch 4 in the game & Gordon has a ton of a value to the teams that covet him.
