Maybe Mitch took today off. He's probably back at home pissed off and trying to create the next master plan going forward.


I don't think he's trying to create it. I think it's already in place. It just isn't going to happen this year. If he's smart he won't sign any of the people this board is clamoring for. we do not want to be a 35-45 win team. We want to be 55 or 20. nothing inbetween. Mediocrity breeds MORE mediocrity. Ask the Bucks.

Nick Young or Mullens for the mini mle.. Minimum signings of LO, Sasha & another big if we got Young & a shooter if we got Mullens.. Maybe Morrow.. Hopefully find a way to trade for Ariza.. Would they take MWP + future 2nd? Get Rambis on the coaching staff & Phil helping D'antoni use Kobe, Pau & the rest of his former players correctly.. I'd consider that a successful offseason & think we could actually be a legit playoff team.

If they gave that for Harris I'm sure they offered even more to bring Collison back.. Clearly he's going to get more than we can offer.

No one available that could make one difference. Lakers would need a miracle season of health and somehow getting someone like Kevin Love for nothing. Lakers are probably not going to make the playoffs this year.

Which is fine. We'll get a nice solid pick in a deep draft that way.

True, but you still have to have a minimum of 12 players on your roster going into a season, we have to sign people just because at this point. Also a few more signings

Portland has reached agreement with free agent Earl Watson, his agent, Mark Bartelstein, says.

There goes Collison and Morrow

The Clippers and Darren Collison have agreed on a two-year contract.


The Spurs have had "exploratory" talks with free agent Anthony Morrow, according to FOX 29 San Antonio.

I think Lakers are only offering one year deals. They don't want any more money tied for next season. That's y u see all these other players signing for cheap. But for multi year deals. This gonna be a big gamble. Jim buss is really gonna try to hit the grand slam next off season

Ahh, makes sense... guess we're all in for 2014 then, either free agency or the draft.
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.

at this point, we're gonna end up with open tryouts for joe schmo down the block. we're going to have $50M in cap space next year, if not more. i think tying up up to $10M in salary beyond 1 season is okay. we need to start putting together a team, if only for the purpose of having tradeable assets when/if something comes up

Wow.. It just keeps going.. We're a Mitch firing & Kobe retirement away from the worst case scenario.

According to Ramona Shelburne of ESPN LA, the Lakers have gained interest in the free agent big man Elton Brand.

If you can get Morrow on a minimum deal, then tehy'll do it. He probably wants full mMLE at multiple years.

I'd love EB here. He'd be a decent pairing with Pau.

I don't know why that's funny, I'd take him for a season. He's old, but you don't forget how to shoot, and he can shoot.

I've been clamoring for Elton Brand all off-season. Imagine if we could get Brand/Odom here? We'd have the best of LA!... from the early 2000s.

But seriously I'd love Elton Brand if we could afford him. I thought I'd read he signed somewhere already though.

How old is Brand?

With the way D'antonis butt is on the line...he'll play Nash/Kobe/MWP/brand/gasol all 40mins+ right out of the gate and will end up being in wheelchairs by the allstar break

so Jim had no backup plan? I know the cp3 thing was killer and now Dwight but they had to see this coming and come up with a plan.

clippers just got REALLY good and they already were. Bledsoe was good but I think collision is better.

wtf are we doing? we're gonna suck
