Bobcats will amnesty F Tyrus Thomas to create the room to sign Jefferson.

Tyrus fell off the edge of the world in a HUGE way. :man10:

I'm not really interested, but we apparently are the most unattractive location in the NBA right now, so I'd take whoever is willing to be here for cheap.

Certainly would think Bobcats will move vet C Brendan Haywood ($2M this year and next), who could help good team as a low-priced backup.

I'd love Haywood here. Especially for 2 million dollars.

Price for shooters - $6m
Price for shooters on a contender (Belinelli/Dunleavy) - $3m

Guess we'll have to settle for scraps because this FA pool is out of our price range, it seems.

Belinelli was never an option after the playoffs he had and based on us not being a contender. He went to the Spurs, 2 years 6 mil, great pickup for them. He makes up for the terrible Ginobili contract price IMO.

Was just thinking, since there are quite a number of teams under the cap, wouldn't it make sense to try and trade Metta to one of them for a 2nd round draft pick down the road?
In the real world, the day Steph awoke at 9 a.m. to begin his Ustream show, Kobe Bryant probably awoke at the same time, even if it was 6 a.m. in California, and lifted weights.

No one wants a useless player, even if they're expiring. I doubt we get a taker on Artest until the trading deadline at the very best. And that's not a guarantee.

I'd rather amnesty him and get it out of the way while avoiding having to have him on the team for an extended period of time.

So, now that the Dwightmare has ended, you guys still adamant about not blowing up the team and looking at the 2014 draft?

Whoever we sign now I just hope they don't work against our 2014 cap.

Please, let's blow this up.

Scraping the bottom of the free agency barrel to add to an injured core of Nash/Kobe/Pau under an incompetent coach ... :hurl:

We have a LOT of work to do, I do not envy Mitch right now. Players under contract,

Nash, Blake, Kobe, Meeks, MWP, Hill, Pau. Sacre has an offer, probably takes it, Ryan Kelly probably makes the team now. That's 9 players and a s*** team. :man10: If I'm Mitch I try to trade Pau AND Nash and get this rebuilding started, this team is going nowhere, no matter who we sign with minimum contracts and the mini-MLE.

I'd go in full tank mode. Amnesty Metta because no one will want him. Trade Nash for a late first round or 2nd round pick. Trade Pau for an unprotected first round pick. Have Kobe sit out for a year to recover.

Ok, you do this and who is on our roster? We still have to put a team on the floor, we can't go in full tank mode and literally run with like 8 guys, you have to have at least 12 players. Are you suggesting we just sign a bunch of one year minimum garbage players or d-leaguers? I don't think so. Also, who's giving us an unprotected first round pick for Pau, I don't see it. I think we can actually get some picks AND decent role players for Nash and Pau. I would still amnesty MWP though, want him gone.

Trade Pau to Minny and a third team to get an unprotected first round pick.

The Lakers should put everything and everyone on the table, looking for the assets necessary for a proper rebuild. BK


I agree, it's time. Sucks for Kobe though.

it's time to rebuild. now comes the biggest test for the front office to exercise their creativity and saavy and plan for post-kobe era. personally, i don't feel very confident and can easily see somewhere around 3-4 years of mediocrity.
