I think, numbers wise, he compares to Deandre Jordan (11 mil) and I think that may be what their front office throws at him when the time comes, barring major improvements. I would go a little higher with Stephenson, either get him or make the Pacers pay a bit more to keep him.
The Thompson thing isn't a deal breaker, but when Kobe comes off the books, we'd be looking at 2 contracts around 11 mil and 2 max contracts at around 17 give or take. That is basically less than we have with Pau, Kobe and Nash at the moment.
Drummond is also in his second year and nowhere near the head case DC has proven to be. I'd think that'd hurt someones value over free throw percentage.
I agree he doesn't deserve a max but Detroit might just be forced into doing so.

Its like Dr. Buss is guarding the Celtic rim this second half. Nothings dropping

Lakers would like to get under luxury tax. If you crunch the numbers, easy to see why waiving Williams was necessary.

Ike Diogu playing well here at D-League Showcase. League sources say he could draw interest from Lakers, Clippers, Hornets and Thunder.

They want to maintain roster flexibility and will not add free-agent forward Hedo Turkoglu because they think his skills are declining.
